Menopause: What it is, What to do

Ensure Good Health after Menopause

  • Have a mammogram performed every two years between the ages of 40 and 50, and once every year after 50.
  • Eat more calcium-rich foods, such as dark green vegetables and nonfat dairy products.
  • Exercise regularly and reduce saturated fats in your diet.

A New Beginning

Whatever we do, it's important to remember that menopause is not the end of our lives. For many women, it's the beginning of a new life -- one that is free from concerns about pregnancy and what others might think of us. These are the prime years of our lives and full of opportunities for us to enrich our personal relationships, learn new skills, develop new hobbies and if we wish, redefine who we are and how we contribute to the world around us.
