Menopause is the final menstrual period, which can be confirmed after going 12 consecutive months without a period, or when both ovaries are surgically removed or damaged. Menopause can result
in unpleasant symptoms for some women as well as increased risk of serious disease later in life.

Hormonal changes cause the physical symptoms of menopause, but mistaken beliefs about the menopausal transition are partly to blame for the emotional ones. First, menopause doesn’t mean the end is near — you’ve still got as much as half your life to go. Second, menopause will not snuff out your femininity and sexuality. In fact, you may be one of the many women who find it liberating to stop worrying about pregnancy and periods.Menopause
