Menopause

Menopause is the point in a woman's life when her ovaries stop producing enough hormones to keep the menstrual cycle going. It usually happens around age 50, but every woman's body has its own timeline.

Some women go through menopause early because of cancer treatment or surgery to remove the ovaries.

Menopause is a natural part of growing older. You don't need treatment unless your symptoms bother you.
