Q: 48 and period has stopped for 3 months now

Hi I am 48 and Just got married in July...I was having a period every month about every 28 days..My period was due to come on my wedding day so I took the pill for the month of July and stopped a week after my honeymoon. My cylce started about 3 days later and lasted about 15 days...It stopped the first of August. I have not had a period since the beginning of August. It is now the first of November! I did experience mild hot flashes for about 3 weeks during the month of August..but nothing since then. I went to get a mammogram last week and it is abnormal in my left breast...is this all part of menopause or what???? Please help!

It's sounds like you're in Perimenopause.  Your periods will most likely be irregular for a number of years and then stop.
