Menopause

Menopause

“Cessation of Menstrual period” 

menos – menstruation 

Pause- stop

Average age for Indian women is around 47 yrs .
Major endocrine changes occur in a woman around 45-50 yrs of age.

Normal cycle

Estradiol production which is an important function of ovary and occurs as a result of oocyte maturation. 

After ovulation corpus luteum is formed which produces progesterone.

Menopause

With ageing there is depletion of oocytes which reduces the ovarian response to Gonadotropin stimulation and so gradual decline in estradiol production.

As ovulation ceases , no progesterone is released and eventually estradiol production falls to critical threshold – no endometrial stimulation – amenorrhea- menopause.
Investigation

Plasma Gonadotropin ( FSH and LH) levels are elevated reach maximum 2_3 yrs and then decline eventually during 20-30 yrs.

Increase in FSH levels is more marked than LH.

Excess of Androgen which can cause excess hair growth and increase risk of arterial diseases.
