Not yet menopausal at 58 and 5 months
I am new to this group, so "hi"!
I was 58 in January and although the very month that I turned 57, my periods started being irregular and later in the year I developed the complete inability to sleep (which went away when give progesterone), I had never had any perimenopausal/menopausal symptoms before that.
I went 7 months from my second to last period (7/21) to my last period (5/22). Before that, my periods had become irregular, but were pretty much every month.
My mother died when I was 15 and I have no idea when my grandmothers stopped menstruating, so I don't know what, if any, genetics are contributing to this.
My husband couldn't have kids, so we never had any and I started menstruating at 13.
I just read on google that the oldest women to still get their periods are 57.
Is it time for me to call the Guinness Book of Records and on a more serious note, is there something I should be doing?
Every OB/GYN I've asked (3 different doctors) say it's just genetics and not to worry about it, but I'm not so sure.
I am normal weight, have controlled Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
Thanks for any feedback!
