Menopause is a natural transitional phase that happens in a woman’s life after the menstrual cycle has stopped. However, it can be problematic for some women, resulting in a variety of symptoms that impact their day-to-day lives. Any women who has not had a period for 12 months in a row has entered into menopause. Women who have erratic periods or similar symptoms but are still menstruating may be entering a phase known as perimenopause. Women as young as 30 may start perimenopause but spend years before they enter menopause.
