Answer

Hi, Sheryl,

I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. I'm not a medical doctor so I'd suggest that you talk to your doctor about this issue. Based on my understanding, if you've gone one year without a period, you're no longer pre-menopausal. Especially since you say you've gone two years without a period, I would bet you've reached menopause. That's why it would be safe to check with your doctor to find out what's going on.

Take care!

Dorian
