Menopause signals the end of a woman’s menstrual cycles. Ovaries release eggs and female hormones every month, and this enables a woman to conceive and carry a pregnancy. However, ovaries do not actually produce eggs: Women are born with all the eggs they will have. Once the follicles have released the limited number of eggs, menstruation and hormonal production ends. This usually occurs in midlife, and symptoms can begin in a woman’s early 40s.
In the months or years leading up to menopause, which occurs one year after the last menstrual period, estrogen and progesterone levels begin to decrease. The eggs are no longer being released, and estrogen and progesterone continue decreasing. This triggers an increased production of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinising hormone, which can cause period irregularity.
