    Hi, in answer to your questions: First, no, since I'm a man I didn't start having tinnitus due to menopause (sorry I didn't make that clear...) Originally I had an ear infection (probably almost 20 years ago now) that started the tinnitus and "s - 89% more...

    I used to work as a neonatal nurse and what you describe was the first hint of a perimenopausal pregnancy. You can still have surprise ovulations. You might be surprised to have a period in a couple of weeks.
