The article focuses on information related to menopause. Most women enter menopause in their early 50's when estrogen levels drop dramatically culminating in the cessation of ovulation and monthly periods. With the declining estrogen they face increased risk of heart disease, bone and muscle loss, weakened pelvic muscle and others. Women who stay physically fit can often prevent future medical problems and improve their general health. Weight gain is less likely in women who are physically active. Various types of exercises like aerobics, flexibility and other stretching exercises help in reducing joint stiffness and injury risk.
