Menopause marks the end of the reproductive years in a woman’s life. It is when women naturally stop having menstrual periods. The average age that women go through menopause is 51 years. The years leading up to menopause are called perimenopause, and the transition to menopause is not always smooth.

Some of the common symptoms of perimenopause and menopause are: hot flashes, sleep problems, bone loss and increased risk for osteoporosis, and vaginal and urinary tract problems.

During and after menopause, routine health care visits, even if you are not sick, can help detect problems early and to learn about available recommended treatment options.
