About the Condition

Climacteric transition between reproductive and non-reproductive state in women. Usually between the age of 45 - 55.

Menopause is a stage of life that all women go through. In clinical terms it begins when the woman stops ovulating and menstruation ceases. This usually takes place between the ages of 45 to 55. At this time the ovaries which have been regularly releasing estrogen and progesterone slow down their production of these hormones.

The hormones estrogen and progesterone have a very close relationship. Estrogen is a very stimulatory hormone and natural progesterone tempers the stimulatory effects of estrogen. This effect of natural progesterone on estrogen is summarized in the list of effects of both hormones in below.
