Abstract: The balance of hormones in a woman’s body changes during menopause. Lot of processes in the body are regulated by hormones, and it can take some time to adapt to the changes. The hormonal changes are sometimes, but not always, associated with menopause symptoms. Vasomotor symptoms affect up to 75% of peri-menopausal women. Project was submitted to ethical committee, got approval from the ethical committee. Test and control population were recruited after obtaining all necessary consent in their local regional language. As age increases, free T3 increases during age group (40-60) years, following which there is a dip in T3 values between 61-70 years. But after the age of 70, free T3 again increases.
