How does Menopause relate to Ovaries?

We know that Menopause is when the natural decline of reproductive hormones begins when a woman reaches her forties or fifties. It is during this time that a woman in this process starts experiencing symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, sleep disturbances, and it can even cause anxiety or depression.


When a woman enters menopause, the ovaries cease functioning and the adrenal glands become active, producing hormones similar to those once produced by the ovaries but in smaller quantities since the reproductive process will no longer occur. Menopause is a natural process, and treatments focus on relieving symptoms. Vaginal dryness can be treated with topical lubricants or estrogen. Medications can reduce the severity and frequency of hot flashes. In special circumstances, hormonal treatment may be considered.


To determine appropriate treatment, it is necessary to evaluate sex hormones such as LH, FSH, Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA. If a woman still has menstrual periods, the evaluation should be done during the luteal phase on a specific day of the month to obtain accurate measurements. It is crucial to inform your doctor about the date of your last period. If you have already entered menopause or no longer menstruate for any other reason, the tests can be conducted on any day.


The treatments to alleviate menopausal symptoms depend on the results of your laboratory tests. However, there are various treatment options available, such as:

  • Hormone Replacement Therapy: Hormone replacement therapy using bioidentical hormones, which are 100% naturally derived from plants, allows for the safe and effective treatment of hormonal deficiencies, with scientific support. It replenishes the hormones that are lost as we age and that our bodies need to function properly.
