It’s termed to be 12 months of not having a menstrual period and usually occurs between the 40s or 50s. This is a biological process and there are several symptoms that can be associated with it. These include hot flashes, lower energy levels and erratic emotional health. Lifestyle modifications and emotional conditioning are primarily the methods of treating menopause.
The common symptoms of menopause include irregular periods, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, chills and night sweats, sleep problems, erratic mood changes, weight gain, hair fall.
