The menopause is when a woman stops having period, and is no longer able to get pregnant naturally.

It’s a natural part of ageing, and usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55.

There are a number of symptoms associated with the menopause, however – many of which can have a lasting effect on everyday activities.

The most common menopause symptoms include hot flushes, night sweats, anxiety, vaginal dryness, and problems with memory.
