What does Climacterium mean?

Climacterium is a transitory process in which a woman's reproductive function is gradually diminished until she finally enters menopause.

This transition between adulthood and old age lasts several years, in which the woman begins to suffer various symptoms as a result of the decrease in estrogen and the cessation of ovarian function.

The climacteric usually differs in 3 phases: perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause.
