What is menopause?
Menopause is the phase of life when your periods have completely stopped for at least 12 months. The time leading up to menopause is called perimenopause when your periods become irregular and other symptoms may occur. Perimenopause can last from 1-10 years before menopause.
Symptoms of perimenopause and menopause include:
Change in sex drive
Depression and anxiety
Irregular or absent periods
