Menopause occurs 12 months after a woman’s last menstrual bleed. The period leading up to menopause is known as perimenopause, which can last anything between 4 and 12 years. During this hormonal shift, levels of oestrogen and progesterone gradually drop. And this can usher in a range of uncomfortable symptoms, such as hot flashes, insomnia, weight gain, and skin problems to name a few.
