Menopause is a normal physiologic process diagnosed following the cessation of menses for at least 12 months without a pathological cause. As women grow older, the decline in estrogen levels causes irregular menstrual cycles, until menstruation permanently stops, signifying the end of a woman's reproductive capacity. Menopause is a major transition in a woman's life, with many physical and psychological changes occurring. Often accompanied by a multitude of symptoms and health considerations, it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms of menopause and their impact on the quality of life of women.
