Menopause is defined as occurring 12 months after your last menstrual period and marks the end of menstrual cycles.

Common symptoms include:

  • hot flushes
  • night sweats
  • vaginal dryness and discomfort during sex
  • difficulty sleeping
  • low mood or anxiety
  • reduced sex drive (libido)
  • problems with memory and concentration

Having one period where the flow is light could signal the onset of menopause. If you have a mom or sisters you could ask and see when they started going through menopause so you can get a timeframe, but each woman is different.  From start to finish, it took me six years to get through menopause. Just when I thought I was done having a period (one gap was 11 months), then I would have one and have to start the clock over again.

See your OB-GYN for any specific questions.
