WHAT IS MENOPAUSE? The period marked by the natural and permanent cessation of menstruation, occurring usually between the ages of 45 and 55.
Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when the function of the ovaries ceases. The ovaries are the main source of female hormones, such as estrogen, which control the development of female body characteristics such as the breasts, body shape, and body hair. The hormones regulate the menstrual cycle and pregnancy and estrogens also protect the bone. Therefore, a woman can develop osteoporosis (thinning of bone) later in life when her ovaries do not produce adequate estrogen.
