Basics

Menopause is a natural biological process, which is also referred to as 'the change of life' as it marks the end of a woman's reproductive life. A women’s body undergoes many changes during this phase that no longer allow her to get pregnant as her periods (menstruation) eventually stop.

Signs and Symptoms of Menopause

Menopause, also known as ‘the change of life’, marks the end of the monthly cycle of menstruation in a woman’s life. It’s a roller coaster ride for women, where their body undergoes many changes due to the fluctuating hormone patterns that begin during the menopausal transition.

Management of Menopause

Menopause is a natural stage of life, not something that you must take medicine for. If your doctor says that you are in the menopausal transition and the symptoms are not bothering you, you don’t have to do anything about them.
