How long does menopause last?
I had endometrosis and had a total hysterectomy at age 29.
I suffered dperession and anxiety and pelvic pain even though  I used
premarin from age 30 to age 50.
At age 50 I stopped the hormone.

I am now 56 and I have severe mood swings, hot flashes, sweats.

Does this ever stop or do some women stay in menopause up into their
70s and 80s and or until they die?

I have a female friend who is 74 and had to start back on HRT this year due to hot flashes and mood swings..and not sleeping...

I feel like I wrote this as its the exact story as mine..right down to the age of surgery and coming off estrogen....Ive been suffering for 5 yrs now with all of your stuff PLUS now with chin acne, hair falling out in clumps and red cheeks all the time. I finally got fed up with waiting for all to pass so last Friday went to my dr. and had blood work done to  see my hormone balance...i should hear from the dr. next week so I'll gladly let you know if its anything that might help you....stay cool,Ann
