This article about early menopause was published Jan. 25 in the journal Human Reproduction and was featured in WebMD February newsletter. The research concludes that the risk of early menopause is higher among women who began having menstrual periods at a young age and did not have children.
Women who began menstruating at 11 or younger were also 30 percent more likely to have early menopause, the study authors said. Those who had never been pregnant or never had children had a twofold increased risk of premature menopause. These women also had a 30 percent increased risk of early menopause, according to the study.
