While menopause generally starts in the early to mid 50s, you may be entering peri-menopause. 

You can read all about perimenopause here:

It might be a good idea to take a pregnancy test to rule that out. Pregnancy at 44 isn't that unusual.

i'm turing 44 this yr. & just skipped jan. ,now bleeding mostly heavily 13 days now-began lightly, slowed for a bit yesterday then resumed as if i were on day 2 or 3 of my formerly normal set...not cramping much so idk what it could be except going into menopause cuz of occasional hot flashes/night sweats.

I am 44 years old. I've missed my period since December. it is now February. I went to the doctor and took a pregnancy test (urine)and it came up negative. But my breast are tender, I've gained some weight, and I am incredibly tired. I mean sleepy al the time. Can anyone give me some information or point me in the right direction to find out what is going on...thank you

I had a tubal ligation 18 years ago and laproscopy done last year. Took a pregnancy test at 15 days late and it came up negstive. Have been experiencing night sweats...
Is this the begining of menopause.

Hi Anon

It could be very early menopause but more likely to be peri menopause - read more here:

I just turned 44 Dec 7 I missed my November s period and its dec12and still no Dec period although I still have the cramps n hot flashes still no period.this happened once before .so I'm hoping its just post menopause .that's causing my irregular period.

Hi, I am 44 and missed my first period. I have been having night sweats for over 1 year and periods have been irregular, heavy and light. I also get very bloated. My back has been painful recently but I still feel as though I am about to start my period. I know I am not pregnant as that would be another miracle.

Is this normal.....

Hello, I'm 48 about to be 49 this Dec! I had my tubes tied 22 yrs ago after having my daughter. I am sexually active and has missed my first period and I have been experiencing some hot flashes for the past 8 months! Tho I can say at one time during those months, there was a time that I didn't experience any flashes. But they are back now. I'm just wondering what could possibly be going on! I'm sure there is no possibility of me being pregnant right???
