What is menopause?

Depending on the Source the definition of menopause may vary. In Menopause FAQs: An Introduction To Menopause – Q. What Is Menopause? the North American Menopause Society explain:

Menopause “A. First off, menopause is not a disease. Menopause is a normal, natural event—defined as the final menstrual period and usually confirmed when a woman has missed her periods for 12 consecutive months (in the absence of other obvious causes). Menopause is associated with reduced age-related functioning of the ovaries, resulting in lower levels of estrogen and other hormones. It marks the permanent end of fertility. Menopause occurs, on average, at age 52. It occurs most often between the ages of 40 and 55. Some women can reach natural menopause in their 30s, and a few as late as their 60s”.
