As important as menstruation is in the life of any woman, the state of menopause is equally important. Menopause is the condition when the menstrual cycle stops in a woman. This is the last phase of the menstrual cycle. Usually, a woman's menstrual cycle stops during the age of 45-50 years. If they stop menstruating and do not have a cycle for 12 months, they are considered to have entered the menopause phase.

In some women, symptoms of pre-menopause begin to appear after the age of 40. Recognizing the early symptoms of menopause can help in understanding that the menstrual cycle may stop. But every woman's menopause period is different. Here is some information about the symptoms, stages and treatment of menopause.

Stages of menopause: There are three phases of the cessation of the menstrual cycle – pre-menopause, menopause and post-menopause. Three to five years before the onset of menopause, the condition of pre-menopause is formed in a woman's body. This condition can last up to 10 years and after that one enters the phase of menopause. After this comes the stage of post-menopause. Most women do not understand the difference between menopause and pre-menopause.
