Menopause occurs about a year after a woman's last menstrual cycle, typically happening in women anywhere between the ages of 40 and 60, with the average age being 51. The technical definition of menopause is “the end of menstruation.” Menopause is a natural biological process and happens as women age. This end of menstruation for women results in the body’s inability to produce estrogen and progesterone. The process is the end point for a woman's fertility, and it usually comes along with some other side effects and health issues.
For many women, the symptoms caused by menopause can be severe and debilitating, and many women feel that they are no longer themselves. These symptoms most commonly include hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats and trouble sleeping. However, there are many other symptoms that plague women going through this process. Additional symptoms include loss of sexual drive and vaginal dryness, changes in weight, anxiety, and depression, and problems with concentration and memory.
