MENOPAUSE Women Ovulation and menstruation cease No longer fertile Normally occurs between ages 45-55 Change of hormonal production and balancing  Effects of gonadotrophic hormones (GH), follicle- stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH).  Unbalancing between estrogen and progesterone Physical symptoms  Mood changes  Weight gain  Hot flushes
  • 4. PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS OF MENOPAUSE
  • 5. FUNCTIONS OF HORMONES HORMONES FUNCTION Gonadotrophic Hormones (GH) Stimulate reproductive activity of ovaries Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) Ripening of graafian follicles that produce ova Luteinizing Hormone (LH) Corpus luteum formation Progesterone Prepared inner lining of uterus for implantation Estrogen Promote onset of secondary sexual characteristicsAnti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH)/ Mullerian Control development of follicles in Inhibitor Substance ovaries Indicate ovarian reserve or function Determine fertility

  • 7. MENOPAUSE Size of pool of Age Fertility growing follicle AMH
  • 8. INTERPRETATION OF ANTI-MULLERIANHORMONE (AMH) LEVELInterpretation AMH Blood LevelHigh > 3.0 ng/mlNormal > 1.0 ng/mlLow Normal Range 0.7-0.9 ng/mlLow 0.3-0.6 ng/mlVery Low < 0.3 ng/ml If a 20-year-old woman has concentration of serum AMH of 2.8 ng.ml, menopause will estimate at about 35-38 years old. Early menopause  < 4.1 ng/ml at 20, 3.3 ng/ml at 25, 2.4 ng/ml at 30 Menopause after 50  4.5ng/ml at 20, 3.8 ng/ml at 25, 2.9 ng/ml at 30
