I have not had a menstrual cycle in eight years. I'm only 37. Is this normal?

In brief: Talk with your doc

Usually menopause happens after 39 years old but sometimes our periods can stop before then.
There's lots to talk about with your doc: any symptoms [like hot flashes]? Any feelings [some women are happy, others sad]? Any reasons [thyroid or other hormone problems]? Other concerns: how to protect your bones from thinning. Checking in about your heart health. Thanks for asking!

In brief: No menses

No, this could be premature menopause (ovarian failure) or something else.
See your gynecologist.
