Menopause is a natural time in every woman’s life where menstruation stops. Because of these hormone changes, a woman can no longer become pregnant.

After a full year of not having a menstrual cycle, menopause is complete and women enter post-menopause. There are currently more than 40 million menopausal women in America.
