In the life of every woman, upon reaching a certain biological age (usually between 45 and 55 years), a natural process occurs – menopause. During the transitional period, which begins after the age of 40 and can last up to 10 years, ovarian function gradually declines and menstruation ceases. Menopause is when the period ends, it is the time when no less than 12 months have passed since the last period.

During the transition period, it is important for every woman to visit a gynecologist for regular check-ups and advice on non-hormonal climacteric treatment methods and, if necessary, on hormone replacement therapy in order to survive this period easily and confidently.
