Menopause means the natural and permanent stopping of menstruation. Female hormone levels drop, since they were produced by the ovaries which have now stopped working.

Cause[change | edit source]

The menopause starts when the ovaries stop releasing eggs every month. This can occur during old age or because the eggs have had surgery.

Adaption[change | edit source]

Due to the change in hormone levels, women get hot flushes and palpitations, depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings and lack of concentration.
