Menopause

Hair stopped growing on legs

02/28/2007

Question:

The hair has stopped growing on both of my legs for two years. My doctor said it could be from hormone changes during menapause. My eyebrows are thinning too. I feel sick all the time and have morning nausia. Could somethiong else be going on? I am 54 years of age. My period just stopped in February 2001, and I have not had one since.

Answer:

Many women have less body hair and some get a little more facial hair as they age.  Feeling sick and nausea are not symptoms of menopause, so those symptoms you should review with your physician.
