  • Menopause is defined as the permanent physiological cessation of menstruation at the end of reproductive life due to loss of ovarian follicular activity. It is the point of time when last and final menstruation occurs.
  • Climacteric is the phase of aging process during which a women passes from the reproductive to non reproductive stage. This phase covers 5-10 yrs on either side of menopause.
  • Pre menopause is the part of climacteric before menopause, when menstrual cycle is likely to be irregular. Post- menopausal is the phase that comes after menopause.
  • Menopause is the time of cessation of ovarian function resulting in permanent amenorrhea. It takes 12 months of amenorrhea to confirm that menopause has set in and therefore it is a retrospective process.
  • The menopause is defined as “ovarian failure due to loss of ovarian follicular function accompanied by estrogen deficiency resulting in the permanent cessation of menstruation and loss of reproductive function”.
