– the ceasing of menstruation.
– the period in a woman’s life [typically between the ages of 45 and 50] when menstruation ceases.
Menopause … the subject we don’t speak about apparently? I disagree slightly as my friends and I have never had any problems broaching the subject. Let’s face it best friends talk about EVERYTHING … especially after a few Sherbets.
A couple of my friends have already been through the menopause [and survived ] one is mid-hot flushes. The rest of us are seemingly peri-menopausal, joking that this year on holiday we will be up all night … not due to partying … just because non of us can bloody sleep anymore!
