What is the menopause?
The menopause is a natural phase in a woman’s life which normally occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, however it can occur before 40 years old prematurely. This phase occurs because a woman’s period is stopping and hormonal changes are occurring as a result.
Symptoms may last for approximately 4+ years. The symptoms for menopausal women may be quite uncomfortable due to physical and emotional symptoms.
