The menopause is a natural phenomenon, which corresponds to the end of a woman's reproductive life. It often occurs at an average age of 51 years. This end of menstrual cycles is linked to the cessation of ovarian hormone secretion (oestrogens and progesterone). We speak of menopause when a woman has no longer had periods for 12 consecutive months.

Information on the hormonal, physical and psychological impacts, together with suitable care, helps you to live this new stage of life in a positive manner.
