Menopause is a normal part of aging. Decreasing levels of certain hormones called estrogen and progesterone make a woman’s menstrual cycle less regular. Menopause generally occurs between ages 45-55. Once a woman has not had her period for 12 months, menopause is complete and the woman is considered postmenopausal. After this point, the woman will not have her period again and cannot get pregnant.
