What is menopause

Menopause is the point in a woman’s life when she has not had her period for 1 year. It marks the end of the childbearing years. It’s sometimes called “the change of life.”

For most women, menopause happens around age 50. But every woman’s body has its own time line. Some women stop having periods in their mid-40s. Others continue well into their 50s.

Menopause is a natural part of growing older. You don’t need treatment for it unless your symptoms bother you. But it’s a good idea to learn all you can about menopause. Knowing what to expect can help you stay as healthy as possible during this new phase of your life.
