Just as a girl's body changes when she becomes a woman, so a woman’s body changes when her childbearing years end. Menopause and aging cause changes in bone strength, muscle and joint strength and flexibility, and overall well-being.

A woman can make a big difference in living her later years with energy and good health by:

  • eating well
  • drinking a lot of liquids
  • getting regular exercise
  • treating illness early
  • staying active
