Causes of Irregular Menstruation

Normal menopause: it is attributed to the decline of hormones as one age. Towards the 30s and 40s the progesterone and estrogen production is reduced significantly.

Estrogen and progesterone control the menstrual cycle, a reduction of both the hormones slowly brings menopause to a start. Menstrual fluid either lightens, becomes heavier or the interval between 2 menstrual cycles is increased. Most women attain menopause at the age of 51.
