I'm nearly 50 and last had a period two and a half months ago. They had been irregular before then for about a couple of years. Since my last period I have had some, what I'd describe as, blushing. Not like I remember my mum having hot flushes, but just hot cheeks, several times a day. I've been achy in my joints for two or three years, but not worse now. I feel pretty calm and relaxed. Should I just wait and see what happens or should I get a blood test to confirm menopause? Is it necessary to see GP if I don't feel unwell as such? I feel older, but not unwell! The other thing I'm worried about is that my period might start randomly and heavily somewhere embarrassing, as I have no idea if and when I might have another one. Is it possible for periods to stop without any major problems, or am I kidding myself that you can just pass through menopause?
