Menopause is a stage that marks the end of a woman’s reproductive lifespan when the ovaries stop making estrogen. This typically occurs naturally in women over the age of 40 who have not menstruated for more than 12 consecutive months.
Some women may also experience perimenopause, a transitional period which begins several years before menopause.
Both prescription and over-the-counter treatments exist to help with menopausal vasomotor symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia) and vaginal symptoms (painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, and bladder problems).
Perimenopause, the transition phase of menopause, occurs when women start to have symptoms of menopause. It may last for 4 to 8 years. Click below to learn more about treating perimenopause symptoms.
