Menopause is often (and quite understandably) mispelled 'menapause'. This page has been written specifically for those thousands of people who search the internet using that spelling. Why should you be left out of the loop? 

Progesterone and menopause are inextricably linked at many levels. Strictly speaking menopause only occurs when periods have finally stopped. It is generally recommended to allow a year to pass before drawing this conclusion. The symptoms which can be experienced in the years before its onset (sometimes referred to as peri-menopause) are generally far worse than those following after. In some women symptoms can start ten years before, sometimes they can persist from 5 to 10 years after.
