The Menopause Explained
Menopause means the last menstrual period. It is a natural phenomenon. Periods stop because the low levels of estrogen and progesterone do not stimulate the lining of the womb (endometrium) which stays thin and does not bleed. Levels of FSH and LH subsequently rise. The resulting low, and changing levels of ovarian hormones, particularly oestrogen, are thought to be the cause of menopausal symptoms and later consequences in women. The average age of the natural menopause is 51 years, but can occur much earlier or later.
