What is menopause?

Menopause is a retrospective diagnosis and is said to have occurred when a woman hasn’t menstruated for 12 consecutive months. The average age of menopause is around 51 years but it can begin between before or after this age.

Why does menopause occur?

Menopause is a natural process that occurs when the ovaries age and all the antral follicles are consumed. The ovaries gradually stop ovulating and hence the levels of reproductive hormones fall in the body.

The body begins to undergo several changes in response to lower levels of reproductive hormones- estrogen, progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH).

In some women, menopause may be caused by injury or surgical removal of the ovaries. Common causes include:

  • surgical removal of the ovaries
  • shutdown of ovarian function, either due to hormone therapy, surgery, or radiotherapy in women with ovarian tumours.
  • pelvic radiation
  • pelvic injuries that severely damage the ovaries
