Over the years, little attention has been provided for menopausal women because most of the healthcare focuses on pregnant women during child bearing years. Menopause is the final menstrual period and permanent end of fertility. A woman is said to have completed her menstruation when she has not menstruated for 12 consecutive months, or when both ovaries are surgically removed or damaged. Just like puberty, menopause is a natural biological process that a woman’s body undergoes.
Although menopause is not an illness, hormonal changes can result in unpleasant physical and emotional symptoms for some women. Do not hesitate to seek treatment if you are having severe symptoms. Many treatments are available, from lifestyle adjustments to hormone therapy.

Menopause is a natural event for every woman. Also known as the change of life or simply the change, it marks the end of a woman’s ability to conceive. Menopause is defined by a woman’s last menstrual period. A woman is said to be ‘post-menopausal’ if there has been no period for 12 months in a row. Menopause can happen naturally or as a result of some health conditions, medication or surgical procedures.
When periods stop permanently before the age of 40 women are said to have premature menopause. The average age at menopause is 50, but it can occur earlier or later. The most common symptoms are changes in menstrual patterns, vaginal dryness, hot flushes and night sweats.Understanding what symptoms to expect, realizing that most women are able to deal with their symptoms without treatment, and having a more positive outlook on menopause are helpful in managing this normal life stage.
