I : I am sorry that you are going through all of that. The average pre-menopause and menopause last anywhere from 2-6 years depending on the patient. I am not sure of your age. The average age of period cessation for women is 53-54. As yours has been going on for so long, seeing a gynecologist to discuss your symptoms and possible treatment would be a reasonable consideration.

Is it ok for hot flashes to last for 30-60 minutes? I'm peri menopausal. When I get a hot flash it doesn't go away until I can find COLD air or water.
Last 2 periods - painful & hvy. I was supposed to get my period on 3/31 & spotted light that day that's it. 46 w/ hot flashes. Can it be "menopause"?
Pre-menopause: Sounds like the early stages of heading towards menopause. I tell my patients that irregularity tends to be the regular thing for most people at this stage of their lives.

48yr old last period 3 months ago.Onset hot flashes. Hormone levels in"postmenopausal range"estrogen 11.8. These mean menopause is over by post?
Not necessarily: First, the definition of menopause is cessation of periods for one year straight without other causes. A single estrogen level doesn't mean anything. Especially in the last 5-7 years before menopause, your estrogen level will fluctuate from day to day and may be in the menopausal range one day and normal premenopausal the next. I don't waste the patients time doing levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
