Were you looking for information about Menopause? Menopouse is a common misspelling of menopause.
Just like puberty, menopause is a normal part of life. It is the time in which you stop having periods and your body begins to produce less progesterone and estrogen (female hormones). These gradual hormone changes often leave women feeling quite warm during the day or in the middle of the night. These symptoms usually begin several years before your last menstrual period and last for one year after your last period. The average age of women who reach menopause is 51.
