What is Menopause?

Menopause is a biological process that is said to happen exactly 12 months after a woman's menstrual cycle comes to an end. It happens when the ovaries stop generating eggs and the production of oestrogen and progesterone declines.

Every woman has to undergo menopause as it is a natural process, however, it can give rise to a number of unpleasant symptoms as well as put you at an increased risk of certain health concerns.

Menopause is most common among women who are in their late 40s or early 50s, but it can happen at any age.
