Menopause FAQs

Menopause is the process a woman's body goes through to end fertility. The ovaries stop releasing eggs and oestrogen so menstrual periods stop.
Menopause usually happens between the ages of 45 and 55, but it can start earlier. It's diagnosed when a woman hasn't had a period for 12 months.
Natural menopause happens in three stages:
    1. Perimenopause
    This is the transitional stage into menopause when a woman's body starts making less oestrogen. Periods become irregular, but they haven't stopped yet. Symptoms usually start a few months or years before menopause.

    2. Menopause
    Doctors will diagnose menopause when a woman hasn't had a period for 12 months. 

    3. Post menopause
    This is the stage after a woman hasn't had a period for 12 months or longer. It's common to continue having menopause symptoms, even after your periods have stopped.
 
Common signs, symptoms and side effects of menopause include:
  • Hot flushes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Irregular bleeding
  • Anxiety, depression
  • Brain fog
  • Sore breasts.
