But first, what is the Menopause?
Menopause means “ending monthly cycles” and is a natural biological process that marks the change towards the end of a woman’s reproductive years. Menopause is a natural transition that all women go through, and with the right support, it can be an empowering time of life.
Menopause typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, but the timing can vary widely. It is defined by the absence of menstrual periods for 12 consecutive months, signaling the cessation of ovarian hormone production. The hormonal shifts during menopause, particularly the decline in oestrogen and progesterone, can lead to a range of symptoms that impact a woman’s quality of life.
