    Enough already

    I will be 58 this year and just went just about 9 months without a period.
    Bam yesterday full blown, clots and all. I had all the normal symptoms.
    This is the third go around. In between only twice in the almost nine months I had a tiny bit of spotting that lasted all of a couple of hours.
    I go longer each time but I am so done with this already!

    Dear An_267797,
    You are getting closer to the end! Alas, there isn't a heck of a lot else that you could be doing to speed up the process-but it does sound like you are getting close; and almost all women are done by 60-
    Good luck,
    Mary Jane
