It has been said a lot of times that menopause is not a disorder or an ailment instead it is a normal transition as women grow old. This is a sign that womanhood is about to end. Unfortunately, though the condition itself is not an illness, it brings various symptoms and effects that could be troublesome. According to the studies, 51 years old is the standard age for a woman in the United States who enters in the menopausal stage. However, there are certain cases wherein several women already felt the symptoms even before the age of 40 characterizing a premature menopause.

Here is the overview of a natural menstrual cycle before the menopausal period. First off, the estrogen is being produced by the ovaries in the first phase and waits for the ovulation. After the ovulation takes place, then the progesterone now is generated. On the other hand, if there will be no ovulation process, progesterone will not be created and there will be no menstruation resulting to overproduction of estrogen. Thus, there will be a hormonal imbalance.

When a woman reaches the age of 40, she will find a hard time on having a regular menstrual cycle resulting to problems with hormone count. This then will result to menopause. At this point of time, the progesterone level gradually extinguishes whereas the estrogen count will drop by up to 50% provoking hormonal imbalance. Menopause could be provoked too by means of operation such as hysterectomy that requires the eradication of both the ovaries and through chemotherapy. With these procedures, menopause will be experienced right away. Moreover, hormonal imbalance could be caused as well by some factors in the woman’s surroundings such as chemicals, birth control pills, and other foods.

A woman may undergo an examination for her to learn what really causes her condition. There are various tests available in the internet and are free to use. This could be very beneficial to those women who are confused of their health.

Having a sufficient knowledge over the things that is happening to you is very important. Taking into consideration the estrogen and progesterone count is very essential along with knowing the associated symptoms brought by the menopause.
