Menopause Health Products
Menopause is the transition period in a woman's life when her ovaries
stop producing eggs, her body produces less estrogen and progesterone,
and menstruation becomes less frequent, eventually stopping altogether.
Menopause is a natural event that normally occurs between the ages of
45 and 55. Once menopause is complete (called postmenopause), you can
no longer become pregnant. The symptoms of menopause are caused by changes
in estrogen and progesterone levels. As the ovaries become less functional,
they produce less of these hormones and the body responds accordingly.
The specific symptoms you experience and how significant (mild, moderate,
or severe) varies from woman to woman. During this time, your menstrual
periods generally become either more closely or more widely spaced. This
irregularity may last for 1 to 3 years before menstruation finally ends
completely. A gradual decrease of estrogen generally allows your body
to slowly adjust to the hormonal changes. When estrogen drops suddenly,
as is seen when the ovaries are removed surgically (called surgical menopause),
symptoms can be more severe.
