Abstract:

Menopause is one of the most significant events in lives of middle aged women. It is an emerging reproductive health issues which has received less attention in past but with advent of health awareness, improved socio-economic conditions and better educational status, it is now becoming a concern for most of the women in their 40s and 50s. Women spend almost one third of their lives in the post-menopausal states and thus becomes a major concern for the policy makers in terms of their reproductive health. Women tend to suffer not only from the health hazards of their reproductive life span but are also subjected to the stresses coming to them after the reproductive period comes to an end. The average age at menopause is said to occur between 40 and 50s but may differ considerably within the country varying from region to region. The changes occurring to the women during this stage are not only physical but also emotional which requires support from not only the partner but also from children and other family members. This article presents an overview of menopausal changes occurring to women and ways to support.
