Abstract: Menopause is the perpetual termination of menstruation owed to defeat of ovarian follicular activity. Menopause in women leads to various physiological changes in the body.

Anthropometric and clinical parameters were taken for all individuals. In this study, there was a significant increase (p =0.05 )in fasting serum glucose, serum total cholesterol, triacylglycerol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol, and leptinin postmenopausal group as paralleled to premenopausal group. There was a decrease in serum estradiol in postmenopausal women as paralleled to premenopausal women, but it was not significant. Additionally, there was a substantialreduction in serum progesterone while, there was a significant rise in serum interleukin-6 in postmenopausal women as paralleled to premenopausal women. This work shows the changes of estradiol, progesterone, and leptin levels in the postmenopausal women. Additionally, an elevation in IL6 level due to the presence of inflammation in those women
