Define: What is menopause?

Menopause is a normal part of life. It's a step in a long, slow process of reproductive aging. A woman's body changes over a lifetime. Many of these changes are due to variation in levels of hormones that occurs at different stages of life.

Puberty often starts when a girl is about 12 years. There are changes in your body - develop breasts and pubic hair begins menstruación.La menopause is the period ending the female reproductive phase. Menopause begins at the end of menstruation. Over time, the ovaries gradually lose the ability to produce estrogen and progesterone, the hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle. As estrogen production decreases, ovulation and menstruation often occur, and eventually stop. Estrogen also helps the health of bones and women to maintain a good level of blood cholesterol.

Menstruation can be stopped early due to illness or a hysterectomy. Menopause usually occurs when a woman is around 50 years old. Menopause can happen but sometimes as early as 40. Age and menopausal symptoms also have a strong genetic influence. As a rule of thumb, the woman who started menstruation early is likely to experience menopause earlier.

At that moment a woman's menstruation may be less regular and she may start feeling the symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes and night sweats. Perimenopause usually begins about 2 to 4 years before the last menstruation.

In other words, the Perimenopause is the period of gradual changes leading to menopause. Some women may experience perimenopause at 35 years. Perimenopause can take several months or even years. During perimenopause, it slows the production of estrogen and the levels of the same range. Postmenopause is the period after menopause and lasts the rest of his life.
