The time in a woman’s life when the ovaries cease to produce an egg cell every four weeks and therefore menstruation ceases and the woman is no longer able to bear children. The menopause can occur at any age between the mid-thirties and mid-fifties, but most commonly between the ages of 45 – 55. There is a change in the balance of sex hormones in the body and this can lead to menopausal symptoms, such as: hot flushes, palpitations, dryness of the vagina, and possibly emotional disturbances.
