Menopause and Perimenopause


What is Menopause and Perimenopause?

Menopause is a natural stage in a women’s life that signals the end of her reproductive or childbearing years. It occurs when her ovaries stop producing eggs and there is a gradual decline in the amount of estrogen and progesterone her body produces. It is medically defined as the point in a woman’s life where she has not had a menstrual period for one full year.

Perimenopause are the years leading up to menopause. In most women, the perimenopausal period begins in the late forties and lasts approximately two to four years. Once twelve months have passed since a woman’s last period, she has formally reached menopause. Postmenopause refers to the years that follow.

Today, there are over 45 million postmenopausal American women.
