Menopause

Menopause is the point in your life when your ovaries stop producing enough hormones to keep the menstrual cycle going. After 1 year of having no periods, you've reached menopause. It usually happens around age 50, but everyone's body has its own timeline.

Having cancer treatment or surgery to remove the ovaries can cause menopause to start early.

Menopause is a natural part of growing older. You don't need treatment unless your symptoms bother you.
