Why Does Menopause Happen?

Why Does Menopause Happen?
24/07/2020 Jordan

Menopause is defined as the point when monthly periods stop, caused by a change in the balance of the body’s sex hormones, which is a natural part of ageing.

It happens when your ovaries stop producing as much of the hormone oestrogen and no longer release an egg each month. As we age, it becomes more dangerous to bear children, and menopause can be seen as protecting us from harm.
