Menopause is maybe one of the most frightening and nerve-racking (although natural) processes, which affects women’s well-being at their mid-age.
The gradual decrease in the production of reproductive hormones, which develops for several years, leads to the cessation of menstruation. This usually occurs in women between 50 and 55 years old, but it’s completely possible that you’ll experience it at 45 or 60 years old.
Your gynecologist can say that you’ve already reached menopause, if you haven’t had menstruation for 12 months, and you’re not pregnant or ill.
The bad news is that most women experience menopause-associated symptoms several years before their menstrual cycle finally ends.
Each of us has individual features, so if your sister has had insomnia and urination problems during menopause, it doesn’t mean that you’ll have the same problems.
