While most women experience this period between the ages of 45 and 55, it can also be seen at an earlier age for some reason. Of course, this rate is evaluated according to the averages in our country. Age of menopause varies between races depending on genetic, environmental, nutritional habits and similar conditions.

In addition, there are some genetic conditions that affect the age of menopause. If there is someone in the family who has had early menopause, there is also the possibility that women will go into early menopause, depending on their mother's age at menopause.
