Menopause is the next natural phase in woman’s life when her ovaries run out of functioning eggs. During birth, most women have roughly 1 to 3 million eggs. By the time of menopause, that number decreases to less than 10,000 eggs. Normal ovulation eliminates most of those eggs. Near the time of menopause, the remaining eggs become more resistant to follicle-stimulating hormone and the ovaries pump out less of the hormone oestrogen. This affects many parts of the body, like the heart, bone, uterus, skin, brain, and blood vessels.
