Many women in their thirties and forties are actually having fewer ovulations which creates hormone imbalance, resulting in many of early menopause symptoms. And once ovulation ceases at menopause, progesterone levels fall to virtually zero. At same time, estrogen is still being produced, again leading to hormone imbalance and resulting first symptoms of menopause. If a hysterectomy has happened, surgical menopause means woman no longer produces progesterone.
Besides problems created by missed ovulations or hysterectomy, excess estrogen is regularly obtained from other sources.
