The menopausal transition is the transition phase from a woman’s reproductive years to her non-reproductive years, i.e. when she is no longer able to become pregnant. This is the result of declining function of her ovaries and drop in her body’s estrogen and progesterone levels. On average, women reach their final menstrual period in their early 50s. However, this can vary from woman to woman.
After menopause, women frequently experience significant complaints, such as hot flushes, night sweats, sleep disorders, mood swings, and vaginal dryness. These complaints result from a deficiency of the natural hormones, especially estrogens.
