Perimenopausal without having a period ?

I am 32 years old and I was born without a uterus so obviously I've never had a period. I was told by a couple of different doctors that even though I don't bleed, I could still go through PMS, or have PMS related sypmtoms at certain times of the month. During the last 2 months or so I've noticed I've been having weird perimenopausal syptoms, e.g. hot flashes, night sweats, anxiety, not being able to concentrate, increased heart rate, having a hard time urinating, really bad headaches, and I'm very tired ALL the time.
Is being perimenopausal or even going through menopause even an option for someone like me?

(EDIT: Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section. I'm new here!)

Welcome to ehealthforum

Even if the uterus is absent but if ovaries are present PMS symptoms and perimenopausal symptoms can occur in a women as they are caused by fluctuation in the hormonal levels and the hormones are secreted by the ovaries itself.
If you have been exhibiting these symptoms regularly kindly visit a Gynaecologist for a complete examination and diagnosis.

Take Care!
