Menopause occurs in three phases: perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. Perimenopause is the transitional phase when hormone levels fluctuate, leading to irregular menstrual cycles. Menopause is officially diagnosed when a woman has gone 12 consecutive months without a period. Postmenopause follows menopause and is the phase where symptoms tend to subside, but the risk of certain health conditions may increase. For a visual representation of the phases click here.
