MENOPAUSE, A CHANGE IN WOMEN'S LIFE TO BE TAKEN SERENELY
Menopause is still a taboo subject today, even though it is a normal and non-pathological physiological stage in women. This natural phenomenon is very specific in its female version since only in the animal kingdom, a few rare marine mammals such as the beluga and its cousin the narwhal experience this same process. In women, it corresponds to the definitive cessation of the functioning of the ovaries which results in the interruption of the production of its sex hormones (estrogens and progesterone) as well as the cessation of ovulation.
There is no single menopause, so there are as many menopauses as there are women. Some of us, the lucky ones, will experience only slight discomfort from this annoying episode, while others, more exposed, will be seriously annoyed or even disturbed by manifestations that are not only physical but also intellectual or emotional. We all, living in a well-assumed quarantine, still exist sexually.
As we approach our 50th birthday, the future is before us, and we praise it in this article.
