Abstract

Numerous symptoms can be attributed to the lack of oestrogen at the time of the menopause. Some of the mechanisms for this are still unclear. However, while there is substantial evidence that many of the symptoms that women encounter during the menopausal period can be directly attributed to oestrogen deficiency, others are less well supported. An up-to-date review of the literature is provided.
