Menopause is defined as the point when monthly periods stop, caused by a change in the balance of the body’s sex hormones, which is a natural part of ageing.

It happens when your ovaries stop producing as much of the hormone oestrogen and no longer release an egg each month. As we age, it becomes more dangerous to bear children, and menopause can be seen as protecting us from harm.

The average age of menopause is 51 and it usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55. Around 1 in 100 women experience the menopause prematurely, before 40 years of age. Periods rarely just stop, there may be a few years of irregularity, stopping and starting.

Symptoms can start a few years before your periods stop, a time known as perimenopause, and can continue for a few years after your last period.

Everyone is different though, and many women go through the menopause experiencing a minimum of symptoms, coping well without the need for any treatment.
