Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the permanent end to a woman's menstruation and fertility. A woman's period can stop for a while and then start again, so a woman is considered to have been through menopause only after one year without having a period.
Every woman will experience menopause, but how each woman experiences it may differ. Some common symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, sleeping difficulties, weight gain and irritability.
The experienced team at Sanford will partner with women to create individualized plans for the management and treatment of menopause.
