One of the universal milestones of the female experience – the end of menstruation and conclusion of the childbearing years – is a transition that each woman experiences in her own unique way.
The term Menopause is often used to describe the 3 distinct phases the female body naturally undergoes as it shifts into a new hormonal state. This shift can bring a diverse set of changes and challenges for both your physical and emotional wellbeing.
There’s no definitive age in which you’ll enter or move through the phases of menopause, but most women tend to go through it in their 40s or 50s – reaching the end of menstruation on average at age 51.
Women who have had their ovaries surgically removed will abruptly enter menopause. And some medical conditions can cause a woman to prematurely begin the process. But no matter how you arrive to your post-menopausal years, collaborative support can help you navigate this new chapter of your life.
This transition affects us all differently – you may sail through with minimal challenges or experience a wide range of symptoms at varying degrees of intensity.
It’s also quite common for your periods to stop and restart as you transition into menopause. Even though you may not always have a cycle, you can still become pregnant during this time.
Whether you’re heading down the path toward menopause, have recently arrived, or are well into living life after your reproductive years, we’re here to support you in your own unique experience.
