Here is information from our Menopause page:
Menopause is the time when the menstrual period ceases and the ovaries permanently stop releasing eggs. Menopause is considered complete when a woman has been without her period for a full year. Although menopause can occur anytime between ages 40 to 58, the average age is 51 years old.

The Menopause and Hormones Resource Center has great information from women sharing stories and expert tips.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
