What Happens During Menopause?

Menopause marks the time in your life when you stop naturally having menstrual periods. This phase occurs when your ovaries stop making estrogen, the hormone that helps control your menstrual cycle. 

While all women will experience menopause at different times, the amount of estrogen produced by the ovaries will begin to fluctuate in your 30s and 40s. The marks perimenopause, the years leading up to menopause. As a result, you may experience added symptoms, such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Problems sleeping
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mood changes
  • Incontinence

These symptoms can lead to changes in lifestyle patterns, causing frustration for many women. Your healthcare provider understands the challenges that come with menopause.
