The Facts of Menopause

Menopause happens. You may have been told by your physician that “it’s just a part of life,” BUT that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to suffer your way through it.

What exactly is Menopause?

Menopause occurs when the ovaries stop producing the high levels of female reproductive hormones needed to release an egg and prepare the body for pregnancy. The main hormone that sees a major shift is estrogen. Menopause is said to typically occur around the age of 50 and a woman is officially considered in menopause when she hasn't had a period for 12 months in a row.
