In brief: No
After menopause, your body no longer makes as much estrogen, but this does not make you any less feminine.

Feminimity is a state of mind. However a womens hormonal balance can affect the mind considerably. Good idea to see a doctor versed in menopausal conditions to prevent problems before they occur.

In brief: Sort of...
Women who go through menopause have a decreased amount of estrogen related to the depletion of estrogen by the ovaries.
The balance is tipped in favor of androgens which are also produced by the ovaries. Yes, women who go through menopause experience changes that some might call "male-pattern" changes, such as coarse hair growth and male pattern hair loss. But, you are still the same person!
