    • Menopause, the natural process when a woman stops having a period; though it usually starts after age 40, some women experience early menopause
    • Ovarian cysts or masses, which are usually benign (non-cancerous), but because some cysts in ovaries can be cancerous or rupture, it’s always important to have a medical evaluation
