I am age 50. I had experienced all the symptoms of menopause and was finally diagnosed as being in active menopause. After coming to grips with the reality that I can no longer have children and not having a period for nearly a year, I suddenly started having periods again. They were extreme with heavy bleeding and pain. Why would this happen?

I wasn't sure if I had a yeast infection or not, so I took a 1-day Monistat just to be safe. A day later, there is still some medicine inside me. When will this go away? Is there anything I can do to speed up the process?

I'm losing handfuls of hair. I have two bald spots, one on the back of my head and one on the side. I don't know what to do. I've had my thyroid checked and it is in a normal range, and I'm doing meditation to reduce my stress.

Lately, I have been falling asleep for no known reason. I will be sitting watching tv and nod off. Do you know what could cause this?
