What you need to know about menopause

- Menopause (or menopause) is the end of a woman’s menstrual function and reproductive period. The age at which it may occur ranges from 20-25 to 50-60 years. It is important to understand that the menstrual function and the woman’s ability to become a mother are two completely different things. There is a menstrual-like reaction that can occur in the body when taking hormonal drugs (for example, when taking oral contraceptives or during hormone replacement therapy). But this does not mean that in such periods a woman is able to conceive.

Climax occurs in late reproductive age, which begins at 36 years. No matter how well we feel, 36 is the standard by which we begin to count a new period. At this age, most women have a disruption of the ovaries: the quality and number of eggs decreases, the probability of conception is already significantly lower.

The onset of menopause is primarily associated with the initial follicular reserve. He was laid in us even when we were in the womb.

The heredity also influences - if the climax of the mother began at the age of 40, then the daughter will probably start early.

In addition, operations affect the time of menopause. If a woman has undergone surgery - removal of cysts, surgery on the fallopian tubes - blood circulation may decrease and the ovaries will be depleted earlier. Therefore, women who have experienced this need to think about motherhood earlier.
