Many women forget routine gynecological check-ins when arriving at a certain age. Without diving into why we consider going to a gynecologist a drama, we can affirm that the gynecological examination is mandatory in all the vital stages. It is true that menopause marks the end of the reproductive age, but it turns out that the gynecological examination is not intended solely for contraception, instead it helps to detect possible gynecological problems and resolve them in time.
Menopause occurs when a woman stops ovulating and her menstrual period stops for the duration of at least 12 consecutive months. The onset of menopause in most women is between the ages of 45 and 55. However, about 1% may experience it before age 40, which is considered an early menopause.
