Category: Menopause

Menopause is the point in a woman’s life when she has not had a menstrual period for one year, and marks the end of the childbearing years. For most women, menopause happens around age 50, but every woman’s body has its own timeline. Some women stop having periods in their mid-40s. Others continue well into their 50s. Symptoms include changes in the menstrual cycle, hot flashes, and night sweats.
