The word ‘menopause' strictly means a woman's last menstrual period, which typically occurs around the age of 51 and defines the end of the fertile phase of a woman's life. The ‘change of life' or ‘climactic' is the time when your body is adjusting before, during and after the menopause. There are hormonal changes and symptoms in the years leading up to and beyond your final menstrual period. It has been estimated that, by the age of 54 years, most women (80 %) have had their last menstrual period- thery are then termed postmenopausal.
