[Menopause] is not a clear time node, but a transitional period, generally referring to the period from ovarian function to decline until one year after menopause.
During this period, ovarian function gradually declines and estrogen secretion gradually decreases. As a result, the periodic growth and exfoliation of endometrium are affected until there is no exfoliation and bleeding, which means menopause.
Menopause marks the end of women’s childbearing age.
Because of the fluctuation and gradual decrease of sex hormone levels, a series of symptoms will appear in women’s bodies, which is the so-called climacteric syndrome, whose scientific name is [perimenopausal syndrome] (MPS).
Menopause usually has what symptoms?
