Menopause is the permanent cessation of menstruation resulting in the loss of ovarian follicle development. It's considered to occur when 12 menstrual cycles are missed. Perimenopause or menstrual transition is the period between the onset of irregular menstrual cycles and the last menstrual period. These symptoms may emerge 4 years before the menses cease with a perimenopausal mean age of onset of 47,5 years. Post menopause is the phase following the absence of 12 menstruations.
