One of the most common myths around menopause is that it will last a short period of time and then it will be over.
Most women talk about being through and done with it. Let’s clear this out:
-PERIMENOPAUSE  is the leading time to the end of your ovarian function. It can last from 2 to 15 years. This is the time when most women experience transition symptoms like hot flashes and mood changes.
-MENOPAUSE  is the period of your life from when your ovarian functions declines till the end of your life.
The rest of your life after menopause will hopefully be a long wonderful time but you are going to live it without the help of oestrogens. This is a major change that affects different part of your body.
