I am not sure what you are asking?  Once your period stops for one year you are considered in menopause but a lot of the symptoms that you get during perimenopause should subside.  Are you still having a lot of symptoms 11 years past your last period?  But yes once your period stops it won't start back up again. .

He is correct...unfortunately. Hormone Pellet Therapy will help you feel normal again! I had 1 Estadiol pellet and 2 testosterone pellets inserted. I also have Progesterone liquid I take. All are Bioidentical Hormones compounded in a pharmacy.
