Surgical/Induced Menopause Directory
Menopause is the end of a woman's menstrual cycle and fertility and is a normal condition that all women experience as they age. It occurs when the ovaries no longer produce estrogen and progesterone, two necessary hormones for a woman's reproductive cycle to function. Though it naturally occurs with age, menopause may also come on suddenly as a result of a surgical procedure, treatment of a disease, or illness. In these cases it is referred to as induced menopause. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage on surgical/induced menopause, why it happens, what to expect, and much more.
