- Permanent cessation of the menses due to ovarian failure; termination of the menstrual life.
My definition of Menopause:
menopause:life's last punch in the nuts [gonads] for women!
I have suffered from hot flashes for years now, up until a few months or so ago, I could deal with them, that was until I got the super duper ones. I am so hurt by Mother Nature for playing this dirty trick on me. I sweat while I sleep, I sweat while I sit, I sweat while I lay buck naked in front of a fan.... WHY, I wanted to know, so I did a search for it on the internet.... and this is what I found.....
For one thing women have :
Female gonads: The female gonad, the ovary or "egg sac", is one of a pair of reproductive glands in women.
The ovaries are the main source of female hormones (estrogen and progesterone). These hormones control the development of female body characteristics, such as the breasts, body shape, and body hair. Temperatures.... Yep my heat flashes are because my freaking gonads are broken... and they say a pain in the ass is bad!

If it wasn't bad enough someone tells me at age 49, I have gonads....
Menopause must be the curse of all curses! Men say we have it easy!

What the heck. It also says this hot flash thing can last 10 years, someone send me some ice because I think I'm gonna blow!
Please ladies if you're dealing with this, go read and educate yourselves. If you still have your Aunt Flo coming round for a visit, count your lucky stars!
As always I wish you all the best and:
Everyone NEEDS a little Sugar!
