Hi, there is another thread on this board that addresses this subject. I had these symtoms for the past 10 days and just today got a period after not having one since July. I've learned that sore nipples are a menopause symptom and can vary on how long they last.View Thread
From what I read and have experienced so far it sounds like this is normal. My last period was July 2012 and I had hot flashes in August and September and now they have subsided. Yesterday I got what I thought was the beginning of a period but it lasted just a few hours and now is gone.
I am finding that I am experiencing alot of symptoms that I never had before, I guess every woman is different. From the various forums I have been on there are many woman that don't have periods for years and then have one for no reason.View Thread
I'm 56 and have not had a period since July of this year. I was wondering what is a normal progression. Most of my friends have had hysterectomies so I haven't been able to have a discussion about what is "normal".
For about the last 8 or 9 years I have charted my cycles and have had very regular periods. Within the last couple years I would have some headaches a day or so before my period. I almost always experienced breast tenderness a week or so before my period also. After my period in July I started getting some symptoms that I hadn't before. I started having hot flashes during August and September, they have now subsided. I also started feeling bloated and have difficulty losing weight when I started a weight loss program at the end of July. Just this past week I started having very sore nipples which I never experienced before.
I'm looking to some answers as to what to expect with menopause. I know every woman is different but was wondering if most women just stop having periods or do they stop and start before finally ending for good. I have been trying to read all I can about menopause and would like to hear other women's experiences. Thanks.View Thread
So glad I found this site, this menopause thing is new to me and I am 56. I had my last period in July and have been having hot flashes since then that have subsided about 2 weeks ago, The sore nipples started about a week ago, I always got breast tenderness a week or so before my period was due but never had the sore nipples like this. Is this one of those symptoms that comes and goes? I'd like to have an idea about how long this will last.View Thread
