The main symptoms of menopause in women

Climax is a transition period in the life of a woman from sexual maturity to the complete cessation of the functions of the reproductive system, which is accompanied by active hormonal restructuring.

Termination of the menstrual cycle begins in women between 45 and 50 years. The dependence of menopause on the time of appearance of the first menstruation is not firmly proven. However, some scientists believe, based on clinical data, that the later the first menstruation begins, the earlier the menopause occurs. In such cases, primary ovarian failure is important, which is the cause of the late onset of the first menstruation (at the age of 17-18).

It is impossible to say exactly when exactly menopause will occur. However, you can take into account the hereditary factor and with some probability to predict the onset of menopause. It often happens that the climacteric in the daughter begins presumably at the same age, in which it began with the mother.


Distinguish between early and late.An important role in the onset of early menopause is played by: constitutional factors, hereditary predisposition, neuropsychiatric diseases and upheavals, infectious diseases transferred during puberty, as well as difficult living conditions. The onset of menopause can also bring the operation to remove the ovaries, their irradiation during chemotherapy.

Late - occurs in women after 50-55 years who have various diseases of the pelvic organs, such as uterine fibroids. The duration of climacteric disorders usually does not exceed 1.5-2 years.


  1. In the premenopausal period, the ovaries decrease in size, the number of follicles gradually decreases in them, which leads to a decrease in their hormonal activity. The menstrual cycle is broken, gradually comes the cessation of menstruation. The amount of menstrual flow becomes smaller. The onset of menopause is also preceded by the cessation of ovulation. This period lasts on average up to seven years.
  2. Menopause is characterized by the completion of the hormonal function of the ovaries and amenorrhea (cessation of menstruation).The duration of this period is about 6-12 months. Menopause begins at an average of 50 years.
  3. Postmenopause begins immediately after menopause. This period lasts until the death of the woman.


Climax is a complex symptom complex that a woman suffers for some time. The symptoms of menopause in women are very diverse. During menopause and the establishment of menopause, as a rule, pass physiologically and gradually.
