Santoro, who is a professor and the E. Stewart Taylor Chair of OB/GYN at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, explains that menopause is an “irregularly irregular” process in which the ovary responds to a reduced follicle supply. This results in higher hormone elevations and lower hormone drops and can produce prodromal symptoms even before abnormal menstruation is noticed.
