Menopause symptom’s checklist
Menopause is the permanent cessation of menstruation resulting from the loss of ovarian follicular activity 1,2. During the transition to menopause, women can experience a change in cycle duration; as this stage progresses, specifically in the late menopausal transition, women typically experience periods of 60 or more days without menstrual bleeding (amenorrhea). This later phase takes place for 1 to 3 years 3. Menopause is a stage of life experienced in different ways 4 and it is important to better understand its impact 5.
