Q & A

What is post-menopause?  Does it actually end?  I’d like to know because I’ve just started (which, I guess, is peri-menopause?)

    • The way it’s described in Dr. Christianne Northrup’s book is peri-menopause is the time when periods become erratic, hormones like estrogen and progesterone decrease....

      Then when we have had 12 consecutive months without a period we reach that moment in time when we experience “menopause” and after that we‘re post-menopause. This is just the way I understand it. We have a group, I’ll send you a link. I started the group and really want to keep it active. I think all of us have a lot to share on this subject.

    • All I know is I stopped about 2.5yrs ago.  The hot flashes haven’t stopped (which I ‘thought they would) after maybe a year?  This lovely women said they last a LONG time!  tongue out

      Isn’t it funny how many of us don’t know specifics?  Learning as I go (experience).

    • The full menopausal process can take up to 10 years (before, during, after) according to my doc.

      I’ve been post menopausal for two-three years (no period or bleeding). Aspects of menopause (i.e. hot flashes) can last forever. I’ve had them for 12 years. They‘re not as bad, but they‘re there. My doc says they may never completely go away.
