If you are a woman in her mid forties or early fifties, you may feel like your body is changing, but you may not know what is happening. Maybe your periods are not the same. You do not sleep as well as you always have. Or your waist is getting thicker.

You ask yourself - "Could this be the start of my transition through menopause?"
