Menopause

Posted on December 5th, 2001 by

The time in a woman’s life when monthly cycles of menstruation cease forever and the level of hormones produced by the ovaries decreases. Menopause usually occurs in the late 40′s or 50′s, but it can also be caused by surgical removal of both ovaries, or by some chemotherapies that destroy ovarian function.
