Decreasing Hormones. Decreasing Menstruation.

As a woman ages, her ovarian function begins to decrease, and as the follicular activity starts to wane, the production of estrogen and progesterone goes down.  The decrease in these hormones will eventually lead to no more menstrual cycles, and menopause is defined as 1 year of no menstrual bleeding.  This is a natural part of every woman’s life as the 50’s approach and the average age of menopause is 51 to 52.  With our ever increasing life spans, women may spend 30 to 40 years in this postmenopausal state.
