Menopause Treatment In Coimbatore

Menopause is a time in a woman’s life when she does not have a menstrual cycle for a year or more. It occurs at the age of 40-50. It is a natural process but women experience some symptoms during menopause. It marks the end of the reproductive life of a woman.

As the age of a woman increases, the reproductive cycle slows down and ultimately stops. The menstrual cycle starts at puberty. As menopause approaches, the ovaries start producing less oestrogen which is an important female hormone. As the level of oestrogen decreases, the menstrual cycle begins to slow down. It becomes irregular and finally stops. Women also experience physical changes due to hormonal changes in the body. The symptoms occur due to your body’s adjustment to hormonal changes in the body.
