“A woman has completed menopause when menstral periods have seased for one continuous year,” Dr. Waggoner says. “Up until that time, she may become pregnant.”
The average age for women to experience menopause is 50 to 55, but menopause can occur when a women is in her early 40’s or as late as her 60s.
“It is not a disease, so there’s no treatment ,” Dr. Waggoner says. “the goal is to relieve symptoms, which may last up to five years.”
