Hair stopped growing on legs



The hair has stopped growing on both of my legs for two years. My doctor said it could be from hormone changes during menapause. My eyebrows are thinning too. I feel sick all the time and have morning nausia. Could somethiong else be going on? I am 54 years of age. My period just stopped in February 2001, and I have not had one since.


Many women have less body hair and some get a little more facial hair as they age.  Feeling sick and nausea are not symptoms of menopause, so those symptoms you should review with your physician.
