I haven't had a period now for 6 months. Prior to that, my periods were very hit and miss. I am 53 years old so I assume that I am going through the menopause? I have not had any hot flushes yet. Should I have?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
