  Menopause is defined by the World Health Organization and the Stages of Reproductive Aging Workshop working group as the permanent cessation of menstrual periods due to loss of ovarian follicular activity that occurs naturally or is induced by surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. Natural menopause is recognized after twelve consecutive months without menstrual periods that are not associated with a physiologic (e.g., lactation) or pathologic cause. This can be divided into three stages, premenopausal, perimenopausal and postmenopausal. Premenopause is the word used to describe the years leading up to last period, when the levels of reproductive hormones are already becoming lower. Perimenopause is defined as the period immediately prior to menopause and the first year after menopause and postmenopause is the period after the final menstrual period. Majority of women do not move from a time of regular menses to an abrupt cessation of menstruation. As women approaches to menopause her menstrual periods become longer or shorter before the menstruation stops all together. This menstrual irregularity may persist for more than 80% of women. During premenopause most women begin to experience some type of gradual slowdown of their reproductive cycle resulting in premenopausal symptoms and health issues between their early 30s to their 40s. This period is generally associated with unavoidable manifestation of aging process in women. More than half of women in this age group report physiologic or psychological symptoms often attributed to menopause. 30% of those women indicate that the symptoms are bothersome. Menopause may be smooth experience for some women with only symptom of cessation of menstrual flow while others face one or more of menopausal symptoms. But there is lack of awareness of its cause, effect and management pertaining to it. A wide gap in the knowledge has been documented in the women from developed and developing countries. Developments in modern medicine have significantly prolonged the life span of humans. Various preventive medicines and improvements in the treatment of disease have also led to a rapid extension of the anticipated life span of women. This continuing rise in the average life expectancy has increased the focus on quality of life as an important health parameter for the aging population.
