Menopause is a natural, gradual transition between active and inactive ovarian functions that last several years in women’s lives and involves changes in both the body and the mind. Women enter an estrogen-deficient phase during menopause, which speeds up the ageing process. They are more likely to develop osteoarthritis compared to men, and the prevalence of the condition rises dramatically during menopause for women. As a result, this article aims to understand the connection between menopause and osteoarthritis, followed by various strategies for managing arthritis symptoms in postmenopausal women.
