Menopause is the time in your life when your menstrual periods stop and you’re no longer fertile. Medical experts define menopause as going 12 months with no period.
During menopause, your ovaries, which are responsible for producing estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, don’t produce high levels of hormones. This normal biological process can lead to a wide variety of symptoms — both physical and emotional — that can reduce your quality of life since your hormone levels fluctuate dramatically.
While the average onset of menopause is age 51, for years beforehand, you can experience menopause-related symptoms during a stage known as perimenopause. Because these issues can start as early as your late 30s or early 40s, it’s important to understand the symptoms, so you know when it’s time to see an OB/GYN.
