Why You Should Take This Assessment
Menopause is a normal biological event that marks the end of your reproductive years as a woman. It is the point when menstruation stops permanently. For most women, this does not happen overnight. Perimenopause is the transition period when your ovaries stop producing eggs, your body produces less estrogen and progesterone, and menstruation becomes less frequent, eventually stopping altogether. This transitional phase generally lasts from 1 to 3 years but may be as long as 4 to 5 years.
Today, an estimated 50 million women in the United States have reached menopause and most women will spend at least one-third of their lives in or beyond menopause. Given these statistics, the symptoms and health risks associated with this phase of your life take on more significance than ever before.
The menopause assessment is designed to help you determine if you are menopausal or perimenopausal. If you are in either of these stages, this assessment will make practical suggestions for how to handle your symptoms and reduce the health risks associated with menopause.
