I am 50 years old and I was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid 2 months ago. My endocrinologist recommended Carbimazole. My T4 and T3 are almost returning after dedicated relaxation and mediating. Now I've missed 2 periods for the first time and the hot flashes have began. Should I say to my doctor?

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.
