No one seems to have an answer to this. Help. Been suffering for 5 years now and just want to know there is an end.

Yes, yes, yes, the menstrual cycle left the building FOUR years ago. When does the OTHER symptoms stop?? Still experiencing hot flashes, interrupted sleep, low to non-existent Libido, and just not feeling like myself. When does it end.....???
I will be turning 54 in about a month and just want to know that there will be a time when I can feel like ME again.

Hi Anonymous,

Sorry but I don't know.

Hello Anonymous,

The normal change in a woman's reproductive and hormone systems cause menopause. Over time, estrogen and progesterone levels stop fluctuating and reach low enough for the menstrual cycle to stop. When this happens, many of the symptoms improve or go away.

I am sorry to hear that you have been suffering with the symptoms of menopause for five years. Anonymous, have you discussed this with your gynecologist? Has your physician recommended any types of treatment?

I will direct you to some resources on the EmpowHER website.

I hope this is helpful to you.
