Menopause is the transition period in a woman’s life when the ovaries stop producing eggs. As a result, your body produces less estrogen and progesterone, hormones that maintain the hormonal balance in women, and menstruation becomes less frequent, until it finally stops, creating changes and physical complaints in women.
These changes may also occur due to a hysterectomy, suddenly cutting estrogen production. Also, if you stop having periods before age 40, you may do a blood test to see if you are going through menopause. On the other hand, the consumption of cigarettes and alcohol can advance up to two years the beginning of this phase.
