Not menopause?: At age 42, hopefully the diagnosis of menopause (defined as no period for 12 months) has been sorted out completely. If you are having cramping, then given your age and presumption of premature menopause, that this should warrant an evaluation to make sure that something else is not going on. Make sure they do an ultrasound!
