Article excerpts about the causes of Menopause:
Just like puberty, menopause is a normal part of life. It is really the end of a long, slow process. When you are in your mid-30ís, your ovaries begin to change how much estrogen and progesterone, two female hormones, they make. These are both important for normal menstrual cycles and successful pregnancy. Estrogen helps to keep bones healthy. It may also have an effect on cholesterol levels in your blood, help keep skin and arteries more elastic, and possibly help memory.
