You should talk to your doctor about this. All women are different. Also talk to your mum.

AnswerIt is usually accepted that you are not past menopause until you have gone 2 years without a period if you are under 50 and 1 year without a period if you are over 50.

Incidentally my grandmother and mother both had their last period at 42 and I was 43. We were very lucky and none of us had any symptoms except stopping our periods. My 44 year old sister is still having regular periods.

How do you tell if you're going through menopause?

As soon as you notice some irregularity in your periods, you might be starting the process, which is called peri-menopause. That will be your condition for as long as you have period, which could be anywhere from 5 to 15 years depending on all factors of your health and family history. When you have not had a period for a full 12 months, you would then be considered in full menopause. In fact, once you've gone the year without a period (or spotting), you are actually Post-menopausal.

Do you get periods when you have menopause?

One of the symptoms/ Indicators of menopause is the cessation/ ending of the normal menstrual cycle. Irregular periods are usually an early indicator of the onset of perimenopause or menopause. When menopause is in full onset you will not have periods and you will no longer be fertile, so pregnancy will not be a concern or option at that time.


What will one ovary do after a full hysterectomy?

If you mean by full hysterectomy a total hysterectomy i.e. removal of the uterus and cervix then one ovary will produce the necessary hormones that two ovaries would. You will go into menopause at the time you normally would (average 51.7 yrs). Only if both ovaries are removed will you go into immediate menopause. There is some anecdotal evidence that having a hysterectomy may bring on an earlier menopause than would have occurred without.
