I have a friend who is a sophomore in high school and is going on 16. I do not believe she could possible be going through menopause but I didn't not know where else to go to ask this question. She has been having hot flashes quite a bit lately and is being stubborn and refusing to see a doctor. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this or could maybe give me an idea of whats wrong with her so I could explain it to her or giver he some advice.
get her to a doctor, it doesn't sound right, there is a medical problem there but I highly doubt it is menopause at 16 years of age. I guess it's possible but you would think it would be more likely to be related to some other kind of medical problem rather than menopause. Maybe her hormones are unbalanced ? Might be worth getting her blood pressure checked to, high blood pressure can be life threatening, I have rushed my mum to the hospital on numeous occasions because we just can't seem to get her blood pressure corrected with medication at the moment, and she gets terrible hot flushes.
