Causes and main symptoms of menopause
Menopause occurs in every woman’s life and is one of the noticeable effects of aging. Just like andropause in men, menopause happens when hormone production in the body decreases. Declining levels of estrogen and progesterone ultimately bring about the end of fertility (usually between the ages of 45 and 56).
