Do women start menopause after a year of her last period?

I didn't understand your post but everybody is different. My periods ended bit by bit. The usual for me was a cycle of every 28 days with it lasting about 6 days. The days decreased first to about 3 days and then the periods would come every 3 months to longer but with less days and then it finally stopped.

Officially menopause is a year after your last period.
But "the change" begins several years earlier - the perimenopause - which is when you get symptoms from fluctuating hormones and drop off in oestrogen production.

I didn’t have my period all summer, I got it in September. Do I need to take something more? I’m 50.

50 is about the usual time for menopause.
I've heard periods become erratic before stopping altogether, so that's probably normal.
But no harm in talking to a doctor if you're concerned.

I read little bit about menopause, women can be in premenopause for 7 years, I started in 2014, I been getting hot flashes on & off, I had to put my fan on when it was very very cold & rainy. I’m still getting my period 8O :cry: I just had my period. What vitamins should I take? My bones can be fragile now :( :x 8O :cry:
