I'm 50 and haven't had a period in 8 months and I have no symptoms do most women have symptoms now or after you haven't had a period for a year ???????
Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear An_254177,
Good question. Indeed, most women who are going to get hot flashes would have had them by now (about 20 percent of women do not get hot flashes at all-we really don't know why!-but good for them!) Unfortunately, vaginal dryness is a common problem that does tend to get worse over the course of time-so that may become problematic. But the good news for that is if that does become a problem, we have lots of help available for it.
So best of luck to you, and I hope you remain symptom free.
Mary Jane
