There are three kinds of lies; lies, damned lies, and statistics! Ok, statistics aren't that bad, and they can be pretty helpful when it comes to understanding menopause and what things are common, or less common, and what medical issues (i.e., bone loss) we need to be aware of!

Summary:

Meno-Stats:

  • In the US, approx. 1.3 million women become menopausal each year.
  • Average age is between 51 and 51.
