Should you get tested for early menopause?
Many of us assume that we won’t have to worry about menopause for quite some time. The average age for women entering it is 51, and anything before 40 is seen as uncommon. But for some women, menopause comes much earlier than that, even as early as your 30s.
Surprised? You’re not the only one. Early menopause is on the rise (and may happen to as many as one in 20 of us).
Experts say that many young women in early menopause are underdiagnosed. So if you experience any of these symptoms, it might be time to bring them up to your doctor. You may be one of the women for whom menopause is coming a lot earlier than planned.
