What is Menopause?
Menopause is just the time that menstruation stops altogether. The process begins, generally, between the ages of 45-55 and usually takes place over several years.
This is the perimenopause. Throughout perimenopause, erratic hormone levels cause a plethora of symptoms.
The Menopause can be debilitating, depressing, even painful. These challenges can continue for many years, ranging from downright annoying to utterly unbearable.
How Does Menopause Feel?
About 1.3 million UK women are dealing with perimenopause or menopause right now. That’s close to 33% of the UK’s whole female population. Some women may suffer few ill effects of menopause, but many will struggle. Symptoms can last up to 15 years.
