My sister-in-law Rima is 39 years old. She and her husband are planning to have another baby before it is too late. But I think that she is nearing age of menopause and should not try. What is the suitable age?

The age at which menopause occurs is a critical biomarker not just for the loss of fertility in a woman but also a greater risk of different mid-life problems and diseases. The average age of menopause for Indian women is 46.2 years, and it is a lot less than Western women, where the average is 51 years. There also seems to be a correlation between menopausal age and economic and social status, parity status, and marital status.
