Menopause marks the biological transition from a woman’s reproductive years to her post-reproductive years. It usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, with most women going through menopause around age 51. As a woman enters this phase, her ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone—two hormones needed for the body to regulate its menstrual cycle. As hormone production decreases and eventually stops, certain physical changes occur commonly associated with menopause, including fluid retention in the uterus.
When hormonal levels drop during menopause, it can cause an increase in fluid pressure outside of cells that make up uterine tissue. This excess pressure causes fluids to move out of the blood vessels and into the space between cells, resulting in water retention or swelling in the uterus.
