What is Menopause?
Menopause is the time in every woman’s life when menstruation ceases completely. In a process that spans approximately three to five years, the ovaries decrease their output of estrogen and progesterone, and women begin experiencing the effects of these hormone deficiencies. This change signifies the end of a woman’s ability to have children. The decline of estrogen and progesterone affects the endocrine system, which is made up of hormone-secreting glands and is a crucial system of our aging bodies.
Menopause is a natural part of life and a process every woman will experience. However, how each woman experiences menopause varies. By taking an active approach, you can curtail some menopausal side effects.
