A woman’s body constantly changes throughout her life. Our specialists can help you understand these changes, ease the symptoms and guide you through the physical and emotional effects of this transition.
Menopause, which means the ceasing of menstruation, happens over a period of years as the body stops producing reproductive hormones. This usually happens when a woman is in her 40s and 50s. The average age is 51.
The early stage of menopause is called perimenopause. The signs of perimenopause begin with irregular periods. This may mean you may skip a month or even a few months before having a period again. Menopause itself is officially diagnosed when you haven’t had a period for 12 months. Menopause symptoms include irregular periods, vaginal dryness, mood changes, weight gain, night sweats and the notorious hot flashes.
