I am not a doctor.

The menopause can happen naturally from the late 20's onwards and can be begun unnaturally by such things as rigorous dieting and eating disorders.
At 47 you are probably experiencing the menopause but it would be wise to have it verified by a medical practitioner.

The general rule regarding menopause is during the onset when periods can be irregular and absent for an extended time is to assume pregnancy is a possibility until there has been no period for two years when it can be assumed to be safe to let your hair down and have some fun - but considering your post; perhaps not too much fun...

Good luck!
