Dr. Agueda Hernandez
Menopause is a natural biological process in women, it is important to know it is not an illness. Agueda Hernández, Medical doctor at Baptist Health Primary Care, says menopause marks the end of a woman's fertility.
"Women are born with a set number of eggs that are depleted over the course of their lives", explains Hernández. This process occurs gradually, women go into menopause at 51, in most cases.
Some of the symptoms are change in period, trouble getting a good night sleep and mood changes, among others.
