Menopause is defined as the cessation of periods. The average age of menopause is 51 years. Yet, the years surrounding menopause can be challenging, as a lot of women experience uncomfortable physical and psychological symptoms up to the point their periods finally cease. This time period, which can start as early as five years prior to menopause for some, is called the “perimenopausal transition.” - Ask the OB/GYN by Dr. Laura Lane
