The Benefits of Menopause

From a health perspective, menopause's benefits include:

  • The end of the ability to become pregnant, with its attendant health risks.

  • The end of the fear of becoming pregnant, a fear that may cause psychological distress and may affect health decisions on medications and forms of treatment.

  • The end of menstruation with all its inconveniences, including troublesome periods, heavy flow, cramps and/or PMS.
