Predicting menopause in Passaic

Planning for menopause in Passaic

As you move forward in age, a natural impulse is to wonder about, "the change," menopause and when it will occur. This is especially prevalent for women who are planning for children, as it puts a timeline on their years of fertility. Accordingly, it is helpful to know which factors actually matter when it comes to determining the age you will reach menopause. 

What factors matter for menopause? 

  • Genetics: excepting genetic mutations or unknown factors, your menopause age will likely fall within a few years of your mother's. 
  • Ethnicity: certain ethnic groups have menopause at slightly different ages.
  • Smoking: is linked to earlier onset of menopause.
  • Chemotherapy: can cause earlier onset of menopause.
  • Ovarian surgery

What are non-factors when it comes to menopause?

  • Pregnancy
  • History of hormonal birth control use
  • Age at first period
