Definition – the ceasing of menstruation, this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg!
Until recently menopause was very hush hush, people knew little about it and it was certainly was not discussed openly. Thankfully times are changing with more conversations ,TV shows and focus in the media discussions are happening including the recognition of perimenopause (the transitional period before menopause) and women are finally getting the help and options needed to help deal with it.
Most common symptoms listed are:
