I've posted on Healthboards for a very long time, just never on this board.
I'll admit that I know nothing about Menopause...I'm in my late 30's and still have normal 28 day cycles.
I'm actually asking this question for me Sister...I told her to join the board and ask for herself, but she didn't want to do that so here I am.
She had her last period she THINKS in June of last year, but she also told me it might have been in December of last year...she said she can't remember
Anyway she called me tonight and told me that she started her period tonight.
So is it normal to go a year or a year and a half without a period and then just have one out of the blue?
I do know that irregular periods are one of the symptoms of menopause, but is it normal to go that long between periods when you're going through menopause?
She never goes to the Doctor and just assumed that she was in menopause since it had been so long since she'd had a period.
If it helps, she's 49.
Thanks for any answers or insight you can give me.
