MENOPAUSE DOES HOWEVER, CARRY WITH IT SEVERAL VERY SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES

Increased heart disease, bone loss, and fractures (osteoporosis). The age for reaching menopause ranges from 40 to 58 with 51 being the average age a woman enters menopause. As women age, their ovaries lose the ability to produce estrogen and progesterone, so the brain tries to increase that production by producing stimulatory hormones: LH and FSH. Rising levels of these hormones are a hallmark of menopause that aids in the diagnosis. The levels of LH and FSH keep rising as the ovaries do not respond with sufficient amounts of estrogen and progesterone. This process is gradual and occurs over months.

Hormone levels often fluctuate and periods become irregular and then cease as the levels become too low. The fluctuations in these hormones often gives rise to symptoms which typically worsen as levels decrease. Most cells in the body have estrogen and progesterone receptors and thus not having those hormones leads to a wide array of symptoms. For example, hot flashes occur when estrogens stops regulating the body’s thermostat center in the brain, libido decreases as other hormones drop along with estrogen and progesterone, vaginal mucosa atrophies as estrogen ceases to maintain proper tissue environment, etc.
