As women mature, they start to reach the end of their menstrual cycles. This process is known as menopause and is when you’ve gone 12 months without a menstrual period. Menopause can happen after the age of 40, but commonly occurs around the age of 50. There are symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, emotional symptoms, and lower energy. Menopause can disrupt your life and it’s important to talk to your doctor to see if there are ways to make adjustments through hormone therapy and make menopause an easier experience.

When you’re dealing with issues that start to interfere with your daily life and your ability to focus throughout the day, it’s important to talk to your doctor so that you can find a treatment option that may make dealing with menopause easier.
Menopause itself doesn’t have a cure or treatment, but there are treatments that can deal with your symptoms.
