Menopause is the end of a woman’s fertility and usually starts around age 51, provided that it occurs naturally. Nevertheless, it can happen earlier, which is known as premature menopause or early menopause. Once it starts, it should stop completely within about 4 years, as it involves three phases: perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause.
