Q. I am a 55 years old woman and still menstruating. I do not have any other problems. When will my menses stop?

A.  Delayed menopause needs evaluation for a preventive check for any hormone secreting ovarian tumour or endometrial cancer. A trans-vaginal scan and a pap smear should pick up any abnormality if present. In many cases it may be physiological with everything normal, which too once established, would be necessary, for peace of mind.
