Menopause – this word provokes emotions in almost all women, but not always positive. Many women think that menopause is the end of their femininity and the beginning of rapid aging. Yet it is another natural phase of maturation and does not have to mean old age. On the contrary, it can be a period of personal development and freedom, even in the sexual sphere. Provided we take proper care of ourselves.

Menopause – what is it?

Menopause is actually the name of the last menstrual period (the word comes from the Greek words meno – month and pausis – pause, stop). It is the end of a certain stage in a woman's life associated with the disappearance of the function of the sex glands and reproductive capacity. This period is referred to as the peri-menopausal period (or menopause, climacteric). However, many people use the word menopause to describe this process.

Important! Menopause is the last menstrual period, menopause (or menopause) precedes menopause and is the process leading up to menopause.

Menopause – when can it occur?

The decline in gonadal function in women occurs on average between the ages of 45 and 55. However, there is an individual problem. Some women may have their last menstrual period after the age of 55 (called late menopause) and some may have it before the age of 45 (called early menopause). If menopause occurs before the age of 40, it is called premature menopause.

People often ask how long menopause lasts. The answer to this question is not straightforward. It is estimated to last about one to two years, but possibly longer.
