Default Is my hamster still in heat?

Hi all,
Now for my stupid question of the day!
I thought I read that as female hamsters get older they no longer go into heat. Is this true?
If so, then how/why did my estimated 2 year old hamster show signs of being in heat last night. You know, freezing and tail up.
Could she be younger than estimated?
Thanks.

No they will still come in to heat even when quite old so she could well be still standing. After about 10 months they rarely conceive though.

Thanks Souffle, I googled and couldn't find much on it, so thought I would ask here. I hadn't even really thought about it until this happened last night.
