Menopause Q & A

Alliance for Women's Health Inc

When does menopause occur?

Women can experience symptoms of menopause at many different stages of life, depending on their particular circumstances. When that time arrives, call Alliance for Women’s Health to learn how to manage your symptoms and maximize your health as you enter this stage of your life.

Natural Menopause

This is the experience that most women encounter as they age. At some point after the age of 40, your ovaries stop releasing eggs and your monthly menstruation cycles stop.

Premature Menopause

When a woman experiences menopause before the age of 40, it’s premature. This can happen for several reasons, including genetic factors and autoimmune disorders. Specific medical procedures can cause premature menopause when the ovaries are surgically removed.

Menopause is a time of transition, one that marks the beginning of an enriching and enjoyable part of a woman’s life.

What are the signs of menopause?

Knowing what to expect can make menopause easier. Each woman has her own experience, but some common signs let you know that your body is going through this transition.

Common experiences of menopause include:

  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Unexplained mood swings
  • Minor memory lapses
