When you're in your late 40's missed periods?

Missed periods? They start happening or not happening? How do you know its that & you're not pregnant? How to deal and know? Especially if you have no insurance, clinics or decent medical care near? This is new and unknown to me! All my friends have had hysterectomies. So I have no one I can trust or ask. You're my only help. Thanks' for caring to reply.

  • I am 46. Just this past year, I have started to miss periods. NO, I know there is NO way I am pregnant. But, I am sure loving every minute of it. I have gone 3-4 months without one lately... I just hope they go away for good now.

  • You need to see a doctor so they can do a test on whether you going through Peri Menopause Symptoms.  Some women have no symptoms and other like me in that article experience all.  grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  • Google "Community Health Centers" to find the master Web site of government-run health clinics that will see anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. You can drill down to find the location of a clinic near you.

    I manage my symptoms with black cohosh, a healthy diet, and a daily serving of good soy (tofu, edamame, etc.) Feel free to contact me offlist if you have any questions.
