Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Too early to tell: Menopause is defined by the absence of menses for at least 12 months, usually occurring about age 52 in white women and often associated with hot flashes, night sweats and other vasomotor symptoms attributed to changes in hormones in your ovaries, pituitary and hypothalamus. May still need to check your pregnancy test, hematocrit/hemoglobin ...and consult your gynecologist. Better be safe.
