Menopause is a phase of life that normally begins in midlife. Starting as early as her 40s, a woman can experience new and confusing changes with her body. While these symptoms are natural, and most are temporary, they can still create stress or even fear if you are unprepared. One of the best ways to keep your calm during this phase is to learn what is happening, why, and for how long.Kenda Smith
