Menopause marks the end of fertility and it is confirmed when a woman hasn’t had her period for 12 consecutive months. Menopause can happen between ages 40 and 58, and in North America the average age is 51. Physical, cognitive, and emotional changes, due to estrogen fluctuations and decline, begin years before the last period.
