All women, and most men, know about the menopause. Women have a sudden lowering of estrogen levels leading to their menstrual periods stopping; this is often accompanied by hot flashes, irritability, and vaginal dryness. It is a fairly short-lived event, spread over a matter of months, and although some of the symptoms can persist much longer, they can usually be controlled by appropriate treatment.
