Six years without a period- menopause?
It has been six years since I have had a period thought I went through menopause and was done. This week I got my period does that happen?
It is abnormal to have a period after being in menopause for 6 years. Some women with very early menopause ("premature ovarian failure" or menopause before age 41) occasionally start cycling again. Check with your physician.
