    I was 45 when I was officially done. Thankfully the hot flashes weren't too bad. I think I got off easy. ;)

    I had my last period just before I turned 50. (I'm 55 now). Glad it is GONE. Although I still have hot flashes ... more than 5 years later. WTH?

    My mom had an ablaton when she was. oohh I guess 45-ish, and it really really helped her a LOT

    she loves having it done and had no regrets.

    Our family has a history of really really heavy and llooonnngggg cycles. So they went in burned everything out and shes been great since.

    I myself silently suffered from endometriosis for years, it was horrible. My mom just would tell me, thats how women in our family have it, little did she know it was way worse than that. I ended up having a laser lapro to basically laser everything to mush. I felt better for a while, but by two years later I was right back where I had been.

    I got an IUD and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it, I never ever get my period, I don't have big hormonal changes, etc.

    I was 55. Aside from hot flashes and several night sweats, I breezed through menopause.

    AVERAGE age is 51. That means there are plenty before that age and plenty after that age.

    Menopause ain't for wimps... TONS of women are miserable before, during and after. Getting rid of the monthly is just part of the process....

    I'm still having hot flashes after 6 years. Mine come whenever they feel like it whether it be morning, noon or night. I was 52 went Aunt Flo said her goodbyes to me.

    I think I was 48. Might have been a little earlier than that. I went through it really easy thank goodness. Some of my siblings have had a really tough time of it.

    I was 39 when I started to miss and dr said I was to young to be going through the change. Seemed like I would get it every other month for about 6 months and then nothing. Gave me hormones and told me if I was 3 days late to take them. I did that for a few months and then it was time for our Disney vacation. I decided that was it for the hormones and never had my period again. I was 42. The hot flashes were not to bad and then they stopped. After a few months the hot flashes started again (someone told me this would happen) and then they stopped again.

    45 and still can set my clock to how regular I am. It doesn't look like the end is in sight, unfortunately. :(

    I was almost 52, it will be 2 years at the end of the month. I always remember it because I was in the car dealer buying my car and had to keep running to the restroom. Luckily the hot flashes were before then, not much since.

    I am 58 and I will have my one year of period free in 8 days! For a couple of years previous I would go 4-6 mos between periods. Just when I would think maybe this is it this time.....BAM! Before that I was regular as clockwork.

    I forgot to add I went 13 months without anything so thought that was it. Was I wrong. I had the worst visit ever. I ended up going to the Dr. where I had a biopsy done. Was told that if ever happened again I would end up with more being done. Never had another one thank goodness.

    I was 39. No hot flashes.

    Five years later, I'm just dry all over and I feel like a million years old (some days). :crazy2:

    I was about 43 - I'm 52 now. I still have the occasional hot flash - but mostly my "thermostat" has always been messed up. I'm just always to warm - very different that a hot flash.
