Some we can not influence, but others can be prevented or reduced with regular checkups and appropriate therapy.
On average, women enter menopause at age 51. However, this can happen later, but also much earlier, and when exactly depends on a number of factors.
These 5 factors put you at risk for early menopause:
First, these are operations and interventions related to the reproductive system. But other requirements in the abdominal area, which affect blood flow to the reproductive organs, may also be affected.
Decreased or interrupted ovarian function
Some diseases or conditions can cause the ovaries to stop working even in younger women. It is therefore very important to have regular check-ups at least once a year, so as not to miss diagnoses or make them late. Remember that many diseases of the reproductive organs do not give any symptoms for a long time.
Polycystic ovary syndrome
In this condition, scars and inflammation appear on the ovarian tissue, which affects ovulation and destroys the follicles, which can cause early menopause.
First of all, these are insulin-dependent diabetics, as well as people suffering from hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. If you suffer from these conditions, the risk of early menopause is increased.
Cancer treatment therapy
Chemotherapy and radiation can often cause early menopause. Certain medications prescribed to people with malignancies also increase the risk.
