    Default How long does Menopause last?????

    I guess til Im dead!!!! About 2.5 years ago I started having symptoms, went to the Dr. and had blood levels done. Yeppers, starting menopause. I had a hysterectomy 13 years ago leaving both my overies. Over a year ago I started with the hot flashes, they would come out of no where leaving me drenched, That lasted about 5 months.........fast forward to this week I will be 50 in October. I THOUGHT I was over the worse, NOPE I have had several hot flashes this last week AGAIN

    I just googled "How long does Menopause last" and many things I read said it could be up to 10 years. TEN FRICKEN YEARS!!!!! Bet I will be the lucky duck that this will happen too. These Hot Flashes are kicken my butt!! I tried a few HRT's and none really helped so I just thought I would suffer through. I hate taking medications.

    Anyone have a "nauturel" remedy for Hot Flashes??? And how long did yours last??

    Yeah it's true. It can last 10 years or more, isn't it great? NOT! I'm like you, I'm 52 and had a hysterectomy about 8 years ago, ovaries intact. I am always hot but started with hot flashes this year, not all the time, but enough to be uncomfortable at times. I had the blood tests to check, but the doctor says its not full menopause yet, it's premenopause as I'm still producing hormones. My mom actually had her periods until she was almost sixty, and then went on HRT patch for 10 years, she's just turned 72 and has been free of menopause for a couple of years now, but she had it for a long time. My mom and sister didn't start their periods until they were 16, so that probably makes a difference in her having menopause late, but I was 12, and I've had a hysterectomy, I've heard that when you have this surgery, you can start menopause early. I don't know if this is true or not. I've heard Black Cohosh can help, but I'm not familiar with it, or how it works, yoga can work and acupuncture. Also the natural health stores like Nutrition House or GNC have natural supplements for many things including menopause

    @Vikinggirl. I remember 13 years ago when I had my surgery the gyno told me I would probably go into menopause early. I am always hot, I freeze Joe out of the house!! lol. I figure he can go put on long sleeves and sweat pants while I sit in a tank top and shorts and sweat!! My mother went through at 47 and I do remember when I had my blood levels done the Dr. asking me how old my mother was when she did. He told me you usually go when your mother did. My mother also had a hysterectomy as ALL the women in our family has. So I am right on target as my mother.
