Menopause & Hormonal Replacement

What is menopause?
Menopause is the point in time when a woman’s menstrual periods stop. Periods can stop for a while and then start again, so a woman is considered to have been through menopause only after a full year without periods. During menopause, the ovaries are no longer producing hormones and the level of oestrogen hormones diminished significantly. The average age of menopause is 51, but for some women it happens in their 40s or later in their 50s. Sometimes called “the change of life,” menopause is a normal part of life. Women spend one third of their life in a postmenopausal state.
