Even those who, due to their gender, will never experience it personally, are familiar with such a phenomenon as hot flashes. At least heard in TV commercials.

This is a generalized philistine name for the period of age-related changes in the female body, arising against the background of a deficiency of its own estrogen, – explains gynecologist Fatima Revazova. – The termination of the production of estrogen by the ovaries is a physiological process, genetically programmed, caused by the depletion of the “reserves” of the ovaries. Doctors call this phenomenon – climacteric syndrome. This is a complex of symptoms that occur in women who have crossed the age stage of 49-53 years.
