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.
