In brief: It goes down
Amenorrhea is the medical term for having no periods.
Menstrual bleeding depends on estrogen levels high enough to stimulate the lining of the uterus to thicken. When estrogen is low, menstrual cycles will stop.

Actually, some high estrogen/high progesterone states such as PCOS (PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome), pregnancy, and use of birth control pills without a "dummy pill" week can also lead to not having periods. The high progesterone levels prevent the uterine lining from breaking down and leaving the uterus to cause menstrual flow.

In brief: Estrogen levels go
Down when you stop having periods.
This is called menopause. This typically happens between 45 and 55 years of age. If you are 38 and not having periods you should be evaluated by a gyn.
