My mom got pregnant during menopause! she was 49 when she had my sister! There is a lady that is 60 something that gave birth, so yes you can start while nursing.
The symptoms are hot flashes, but its not like just GETTING hot. when a flash starts it starts at your head or feet and it feels like your skin is heating from your feet up, when I have one even my hair is warm, DH thinks that funny, he can feel the heat in my hair!
ITS AWFUL!! I have gone outside in the middle of the night in snow wearing DH's t shirt, just to cool off!
You can also get dizzy, light headed, I have to sit down when it happens.
you can have like panic attacks.
all of a sudden it will feel like your heart is raceing, its not, so dont worry. its just MENOPAUSE!
I have not had my period for about 2 yrs now but you can still get one , even like 5 yrs. later, Ya never know!
Your hormones are all F####D up.
you will be happy one minute and be crying the next and you don't know WHY!
Its a MESS!
I am still going through it, it can last for YEARS! Aient that a kicker!
