anyone out there been through Menopause? adult content

I had a full blown hot flash about 3 years ago, I was 37.
I've been in acupuncture ever since around then for a arm injury, and hormones seem much more stable. I've never had that happen since.

All the women in my family had Hysterectomies, so none of them went into Menopause gradually.

if you've been through this, what age were you?
I wonder what age to possibly expect actual menopause.

  • I finished when I was 45. I went through the night sweats but not really the hot flashes. I most likely started about your age. Cycles started to be a little unpredictable. That's why i call my youngest my Menopause baby. Wasn't really watching as close as I sholud have been.

  • I forgot about the uncontrollable crying then going into a rage because of something stupid. Yeah my husband an boys learned real quick that I said leave me alone they better do it. I took a lot of long walks in those days.
