The STORY of Hormones starts from the two main characters Estrogens and Progesterone. The Ovaries are the source of these two hormones which almost regulate all the reproductive functions of the female body, With age the number of Ovarian follicles decline, As the ovarian has number of ovarian follicles declines and the ovaries become less responsive to the two other hormones involved in reproduction—Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle – Stimulating Hormone (FSH). As your ovaries age and release fewer hormones, FSH and LH can no longer perform their usual functions to regulates your estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. This inevitable change causes a change in the hormones of your body and impacts several organ functions such as Brain, heart and skin etc. Estrogen depletion can bring on a combination of hormonal and biochemical fluctuations that can lead to changes in your brain and nervous system. You may experience mood swings, memory loss, problems focusing, irritability, fatigue, hot flashes, night sweats, stress, anxiety and depression.

irritability and memory loss, can create more opportunities for emotional changes and mood swings.
