Menopause is the end of menstruation. In clinical terms, you reach menopause when you haven’t had a period for 12 months. Vaginal bleeding after menopause isn’t normal and should be evaluated by your doctor.
The age at which a woman starts having menstrual periods is also not related to the age of menopause onset. Most women reach menopause between the ages of 45 and 55, but menopause may occur as earlier as ages 30s or 40s, or may not occur until a woman reaches her 60s.

For testing,your doctor may order a blood test to check your levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and estrogen. During menopause, your FSH levels increase and your estrogen levels decrease.

Menopause can cause many changes in your body. The symptoms are the result of a decreased production of estrogen and progesterone in your ovaries.
Common symptoms around the time of menopause include:
  • Irregular or skipped periods.During a normal menstrual cycle, the levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone increase and decrease in a regular pattern. … During perimenopause, hormone levels may not follow this regular pattern. As a result, you may have irregular bleeding or spotting. Some months, your period may be longer and heavier.

  • Insomnia.During.The course of perimenopause through menopause, a woman’s ovaries gradually decrease production of estrogen and progesterone, a sleep-promoting hormone. The shifting of ratios of hormones can be an unsettling process, sometimes contributing to the inability to fall asleep.

  • Mood swings.During the transition to menopause, levels of the hormone estrogen drop, causing wide-ranging changes throughout the body. … Lower levels of estrogen have been linked to irritability, fatigue, stress, forgetfulness, anxiety, and difficulty concentrating.

  • Headaches.The same hormone — or lack thereof — that gives some women relief from migraines after menopause can cause more headaches in the months leading up to it. That’s because hormone levels such as estrogen and progesterone decline during perimenopause.
