What is Menopause?

Menopause is defined as the time when a woman's periods permanently cease, which is usually diagnosed retroactively when there has not been a period for one full year. In every day usage, the word menopause usually covers a number of years and refers to that time in a woman's life when the ovaries gradually stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone.
