Natural menopause happens gradually. The ovaries don’t abruptly stop – they slow down. The transition to menopause is called perimenopause.
Menopause is a milestone – it’s the day that marks 12 months in a row since a woman’s last period.
A woman is considered to be postmenopausal when she has not had her period for an entire year. It is the start of the second phase in your life. Don’t look back sadly, now is the time to focus on you, to love yourself more and to revive (not retire) your love life!
Menopause symptoms vary from woman to woman. You will find the symptoms change as you transition from one phase to the other.
