I had my last menstrual period about 4-5 years ago yet I feel that I am now going through the emotional side of menopause. Can this be?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  Everyone's body is different.  But, Hot flashes and sweats are at their worst for the first 1 - 2 years after the last period. Menopause symptoms may last 5 or more years. It might be a good idea to see your doctor.  He might start you in a Hormone Treatment to help with the symptoms of menopause.

Here's a link that can help
