natural menopause

1. The menopause is a natural, normal process. It is one of the many transitions we go through in life. It’s something our bodies have to, and will, adjust to...

Menopause is the natural cessation of a woman’s periods. We are said to have gone through the menopause when we haven’t had a period for 12 months in succession.


The average age of menopause is early 50s (so for some women it’s earlier, for others a few years further down the line), and the time leading up to complete cessation of periods can span up to 10 years. This is known as the perimenopause.
