As I continue my quest to understand menopause-land, I am confused by the term "postmenopausal". After all, we will be postmenopausal till the day we die, right? So how long after our periods will we be blessed with symptoms? I haven't had a period since I had a uterine ablation 6 years ago. I had a few peri symptoms over the years, but have been hit with them particularly hard over the past year.(I'm 51 now) My FSH test indicates that I'm post menopausal. Anyone still have menopause symtoms even though you're postmenopausal?
I'll be going to an endocrinologist next week, but I'm having a difficult evening (symptom-wise) and thought I'd seek out some comfort and advice! Thanks, Gayle
