Life During Menopause

Life During Women Menopause

Menopause is a different period in a women's life when her periods eventually stops and her body goes through a series of changes which no longer allow her to conceive and to get pregnant. It is a biological and natural phenomena that occurs in every women's life usually between the age of 45 -55.
Biologically menopause occurs in females when the level of hormones like estrogen and progesterone fall down and their body no longer produces eggs. Menopause can be a time of great emotional or physical change which can overwhelm you significantly if you aren't sure what to expect in this phase of life. The periods don’t stop all of a sudden, they gradually stop over the time. Initially your menstrual periods start occurring less often and after some time, they eventually stop.
Menopause results in the decline in the release of hormones such as progesterone and estrogen, and because of this, a women can face several uncomfortable physical problems but it is unlikely that every women would face the same kind of issues.
