WHAT’S HAPPENING?  WHAT DO I DO? A GUIDE TO MENOPAUSE

When does menopause happen?

The average age when menstruation stops is supposedly 52 but any age after forty is considered normal and for a few women menopause occurs in their late thirties. However if periods stop before the mid forties, it is important to have a medical evaluation to find out the cause. Menopause also occurs when the ovaries are removed surgically or are damaged as can happen with some forms of chemotherapy.

Hot flashes are due to brief over-activity of the autonomic nervous system and often indicate that menopause is approaching. An occasional hot flash can occur without any hormonal trigger. This is like blushing and can be normal; it is particularly common in fall and spring with sudden temperature changes.
