Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when the ovarian
production of estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone
declines. The average age of menopause onset is 51, plus

are all symptoms of menopause, the loss of estrogens,
progesterone and testosterone.
Perimenopause is the period of time before, and for a year
after, the final menstrual period during which ovarian
hormonal patterns change. The average age at which
irregular cycles develop is approximately age 47 but in
many cases can start as early as 35 years old. Like
menopause, this is a normal part of a woman’s life cycle.
