    I am 52 got my period after 8 months
    Luckyyyy posted:
    I got a regular period after 8 months. 8months ago for about 3 months I had extremely light periods and then nothing for 8 months. For the past year I have been without a job and have stress because of this. Lately checked my weight . I have put on 20 pounds in 2 years although this started after I lost my job and have not been as physically active as before. I am told I have become more irritable. I do have occasional sleeplessness i wake up 2 or3 hours earlier i do wake up sometimes to urinate which I never used to. My father passed away 4 months back and it has not been easy for me. I recently checked my blood pressure it is slightly high. I am told that all my symptoms are normal and I feel once I get a job I will feel motivated. Should I be concerned about any of my symptoms?
