Menopause is a sign that the reproduction hormones have decreased. Both sexes experience menopause. Women experience hot flashes, insomnia and a decrease in vagina fullness. According to Rozen and Oz (2005) the onset for men is gradual and not as clearly defined.
Dr. Northrup stays “healthy ovaries continue to make small amounts of hormones for our entire lives—especially testosterone. And contrary to outmoded science, they do NOT stop functioning after menopause! Most importantly, effectively removing your ovaries can mean an increased risk for fatal coronary artery disease, cognitive impairment, and Parkinson’s disease. And these risks outweigh the reduced risk for fatal ovarian cancer that is associated with elective ovarian removal. But, even if you have already had your ovaries removed, there are ways you can mitigate these risks”(https://www.drnorthrup.com/video/hysterectomy-how-to-keep-your-ovaries/#comments
