What is Menopause


What does Menopause mean to you?

As a woman, learning what menopause is, its symptoms and possible effects can make it easier to deal with when the time comes.

Its a time of change that can also be associated with general wellbeing when properly managed.

For many women, it begins in their middle to late 40s, becoming fully established in most after age 50years - but this can vary.

If not, a woman may feel frustrated as well as physically and mentally unwell.

This could certainly impact on her relationship with family and her work.

Men should also learn about menopause and help women remove some of the traditional misconceptions associated with it.
