I feel like some doc's don't take it seriously. When I told my primary care about my symptoms that I thought could be peri menopause, she just kind of shrugged and said, "sounds like it." I think more docs should be educated so when women in their forties have symptoms, and there are TONS of them, they can guide them better. It's almost like they don't want to talk about it or give it any attention. Just be quiet and get through it.
