                                     Menopause

Menopause is a naturally occurring physiological cycle that takes place in most women between the ages of 3560. Menopause is the cessation of menses when a woman is finished with her child bearing years. This is the result of a change in a woman's body chemistry, resulting in a lowered production of reproductive hormones and the subsequent decline of the ovarian follicular function to induce ovulation.

Symptoms of menopause include:

Hot flashes and/or night sweats
Headaches
Vaginal dryness and low
libido
Mood swings and/or depression
Insomnia
Reduction in bone density
Bladder infections and/or frequent urination

The severity of the symptoms may be dependent on overall health, diet and lifestyle. The severity is not dependent on race, class, or the birth control pill. Symptoms may last from six months to over three years. Approximately 10-15% of women will not experience any menopausal symptoms, and approximately 10-15% of women will experience severe symptoms.
