You are not alone.  I am 50 years old and have not menstruated for almost four years until a couple of weeks ago.  It seemed like a regular period (from what I remember :)  with breast tenderness and lasted 4 days.  Can anyone shed some light on ovulation occurring 4 years later!? I am having an ultrasound tomorrow.
Thanks,
Anne

I just turned 51 yrs young, I have not had a period since 2007 and I am bleeding like my cycle is on again...no cramps, just another cycle, no breast tenderness which I use to get with my cycles.....is this normal? emotional I feel very relieved, like a pressure valve has been released!
please shed light......thanks ***@****

Same boat here.  I am 53 years old....went through a full year between 2007 and 2008 with nothing and WHAM....another period.  I also went through 2 more in 2008 and then nothing since December of 2008 in terms of a period but, now....on and off light spotting between April and now.  

I had an ultrasound done last year and the doc told me that it wasn't unusual for this to happen....one last kick in of the ovaries/hormones and that I may go back into cycling again for a bit....which I did.  

However, ladies, a trip to the doc is likely a good thing to do.  At minimum, they'll reassure you, likely after an ultrasound to check your uterine lining thickness as well as some blood tests to check certain levels.  If your endometrium is thin....they'll likely not be need to do anything else but watch.  If it's thickened, they'll likely do a uterine biopsy just to be on the safe side.  I'm waiting to have the biopsy done as mine came back as thickened (16 mm's).  

Both my family doc and the gynecologist have said that they see this happen all of the time but, it does warrant a thorough check just to be on the safe side.  

You're not alone! :)  This is more common than literature makes you believe.  However, better to be safe than sorry later.  Get an appointment with your docs and just discuss it with them.
