I dont understand that How will FSH and LH High levels not cause the GnRH to decrease

I think in menopausal women, GnRH is high causing high FSH and LH. However, the ovaries are not working any more, therefore they're not producing any more estrogen which is a negative inhibitor to GnRH. That's why GnRH is high.

Makes sense?
