A woman has reached menopause when she has not had a menstrual period for one year. The time of transition, or perimenopause, usually begins when a woman is in her 40s. Each woman's experience can be very different, however.
During this transition time before menopause, ovulation becomes irregular and the production of estrogen and progesterone decreases. It is this drop in estrogen levels that causes most of the symptoms associated with menopause.
