Most women reach menopause between the ages of 45 and 55, but menopause may occur as early as the 30s or 40s or as late as the 60s. The age in which a woman reaches menopause is mainly determined by genetics. Earlier menopause is associated with a decreased risk of breast cancer, but an increased risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. There is also a significant impact on fertility associated with early menopause (EM), which is particularly relevant to current populations where delaying childbearing has become more prevalent. Early menopause (EM) affects up to 10% of the female population, reducing reproductive lifespan considerably. Currently, it constitutes the leading cause of infertility in the western world, affecting mainly those women who postpone their first pregnancy beyond the age of 30 years.
