How do you know when menopause is over/almost over?
How do you know when you're done with menopause? I'm 44 and have been in full blown meno for about 6-7 years. I've taken natural supplements to help me through things....and I've gained about 25 pounds. :( Tried and tried but haven't been able to lose any. About a month and a half ago I was terribly stressed ...and pretty much lost my appetite. I have now lost about 12 pounds. Even now that my anxiety has subsided and things are once again good my appetite hasn't really returned.
I'm wondering if this may be a sign that menopause is subsiding. I've never a big eater. However for the past few years, I was hungry all of the time...munched all day. Now that seems to have passed.
I stopped taking some of the supplements too so that could be part of it as well... Basically, I'm just wondering how you know when you're done or almost done??
