Were you looking for information about Menopause? Menopase is a common misspelling of menopause.
Menopause is a natural transitional period in which a woman stops menstruating. Her body will gradually produce less estrogen and progesterone, hormones that are made in the ovaries. Changing levels of these hormones may lead to symptoms such as hot flashes or night sweats. Menopause doesn't usually occur before you are 40, but can happen any time from your 30s to your mid-50s or later; the average age of women who reach menopause is 51.
