Menopause usually arrives at the age of about fifty years of women. But it is very individual. Some women menstruate up to sixty years, some only for example up to forty five years. The exact age at which the transition occurs in a woman cannot be determined.
The average age at which menopause comes is 51 years. This is a period of hormonal changes. They act on the whole organism. Changes in the levels of female sex hormones that are produced by the ovaries. The ovaries cease their activity and therefore the level of these hormones decreases.
Gradual changes in hormones
Changes in hormone levels do not happen from day to day. The period before the menopause comes and the end of the menstrual cycle can last for several years. Gradually, the level of estrogen and progesterone decreases. Most organs, dependent on their hormonal regulation, lose guidance, and their function changes.
