    One of the many things nobody ever tells you about middle age
    is that it's such a nice change from being young.

    Menopause can create problems like Hot flashes. Women have to be very much careful at time of pregnancy. You have explained well in your slides about this problem.

    The menopause marks the time in a woman's life when her menstruation stops and she is no longer fertile (able to become pregnant).\

    Menopause is defined as the point in time when menstrual cycles permanently cease due to the natural depletion of ovarian oocytes from aging. The diagnosis is typically made retrospectively after the woman has missed menses for 12 consecutive months. It marks the permanent end of fertility and the average age of menopause is 51 years.

    Watch "Hot Flash Havoc". It's pretty much an encyclopedia of everything menopause crammed into one documentary.
    jessyparker replied to ChitChatMarge's response:

There are different methods to treat these symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy, herbs like black cohosh, vitamin D supplements and menopause relief supplements .
