Menopause is a transition period in a woman’s life that signals the end of her reproductive capabilities. It’s marked by the permanent cessation of monthly menstrual bleeding.
Every woman will experience menopause, and the process involves a gradual decline in hormonal levels accompanied by many bodily changes.
How do I know if I’ve reached menopause?
You’ve reached menopause if your last period was 12 months previous or have undergone surgical removal of both ovaries because of a medical condition or cancer. Women in the United States experience menopause between the ages of 40 and 58, with the average age being 51.
