Period: Up to what age?
Having a period is a sign that your body is ready to give birth (though you probably are not ready yet!). Your period will normally continue until you are in your forties or fifties. It is during this time that most women stop ovulating (releasing an egg) and stop having their period: this is called menopause. Illness, poor diet, very intense physical exercise and pregnancy are other conditions that may cause your period to stop (or amenorrhea).
