Because of menopause, can a woman's period stop instantly overnight without warning? Im 49 and yss I know I have been having symptoms for a year or so of peri-menopause, no actual diagnose. But about 2 months now and NO period at all. I know all the books say "no period for a year" BUT its only 2 months, so i'm just asking is it possible that overnight instantly it stops?View Thread
Dr Minkin, I started this blog of some sort, I btw have hypothyroidism have had it for many years(dx when I was 25). Also in 6/2011 my husband passed away very suddenly and that has truly thrown me into a major depression, stress and serious insomnia too. Actually my insomnia started much earlier then 6/2011. I'm aware of the 1 full yr without a period thing. I am 49 and the last 2 almost 3 months now no period, which of course isn't a problem but I was just wondering can a woman's period Just Stop Overnight like this? If so fine but if not what else might be the issue? Just wondering! Thanks Jane in SouthCarolinaView Thread
