Menopause is a cycle every woman goes through, generally between the ages of 48 and 55. Menopause happens when fertility and menstruation ends, a gradual process starting with the peri-menopause, which can start as early as 40. This natural process brings about changes in our bodies, both physical and emotional. The only inevitability with the menopause is that we are no longer fertile, our periods end. This is due to the ovaries producing less and less of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone.
Every woman experiences the menopause differently, some woman may have little or no trouble with symptoms, others find life extremely challenging and struggle day to day. The change in hormones brings about a range of symptoms in varying degrees. In fact 34 in total!!
