As you get through menopause, one year after you have stopped getting your menstrual period, you enter the postmenopausal stage of your life. This can be a liberating time for you, relieved of the symptoms associated with menopause but happy to not have periods and to not have the possibility of getting pregnant. Your body has changed significantly which means that you have some specific health concerns that you must consider at this time in your life. The risks of other diseases such as stroke, breast and ovarian cancer are thought to increase after menopause as well, especially for women with certain lifestyles, and family and medical histories.
