Blog By : Riya Rathore

Ageing changes in the female reproductive system result mainly from changing hormone levels. One clear sign of aging occurs when your menstrual periods stop permanently. This is known as menopause. the time before menopause is called perimenopause. It may begin several years before your last menstrual period. Signs of perimenopause include: More frequent periods at first,  and then occasional missed periods Periods that are longer or shorter Changes in the amount of menstrual flow Eventually your periods will become much less frequent, until they stop completely. Along with changes in your periods, physical changes in your reproductive tract occur as well.

Menopause is a normal part of a woman’s aging process. Most women experience menopause around age 50, though it can occur before that age. The usual age range is 45 to 55. The ovaries stop making the hormones estrogen and progesterone. The ovaries also stop releasing eggs After menopause, you can no longer become pregnant. Your menstrual periods stop. You know you have gone through menopause after you have had no periods for 1 year. You should continue to use a birth control method until you have gone a whole year without a period.

From PMS to menopause, these messengers of womanhood can affect your mood, your weight, your food cravings – even your desire for sex.
