Menopausal symptoms are caused by changes in hormone levels, particularly a decrease in estrogen production as part of the natural aging process. Menopause is defined as a year without menstrual bleeding and occurs when the ovaries produce less estrogen, leading to irregular periods and eventually their cessation. The physical changes experienced during menopause are the body’s adaptations to the shifting hormone levels during perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause stages.
