Menopause is the natural process of a slow hormonal change in ovarian function. This process is quite complicated as many hormones and substances regulate and affect the body.
The menopause is divided into three phases. When the menopause begins and how long it lasts is very individual and different. Genetic factors, physical characteristics, daily habits and external factors play a major role.
Premenopause is the intermediate phase when ovarian function/ovulation is still present but no longer functioning regularly, fertility decreases. The first symptoms are primarily menstrual disorders, menstrual irregularities, complaints such as mood swings, water retention, breast tenderness.
These symptoms are most severe during the perimenopause. One reason for this is low estrogen levels. Menopause begins with a last spontaneous menstrual period. When there has been no bleeding for a year, postmenopause begins. From this phase, fertility is complete.
