MENOPAUSE

MENOPAUSE

Menopause is the cessation of menstruation in women. In other words, menopause is the point in a woman's life at which the formation of the ovaries ceases and she can no longer become pregnant. 

Menopause appears between the ages of 45 and 55 years but sometimes it can occur earlier around 40 years. Most women reach menopause at the age of 51. After twelve months of menstrual period’s absence we can say that a woman has a menopause.

The time before menopause is referred to as perimenopause, and the time after menopause is referred to as postmenopause.

Perimenopause is often accompanied by irregularities in the menstrual cycle. It may begin up to 10 years before the last menstrual period and can onset the typical symptoms of early menopause.

Menopause is not a disease; it is a natural situation in every woman’s life.
