Menopause

Premature Menopause

Premature menopause is menopause that occurs before the age of 40 years. Menopause is a condition in women in which they permanently stop getting their periods. Reaching menopause typically means that they can no longer become pregnant naturally. Early menopause can happen naturally if a woman's ovaries stop making normal levels of certain hormones, particularly the hormone oestrogen.

While there is no guarantee you can prevent early menopause, you can manage symptoms by consulting with your doctor.
