There is no cause for concern since early menopause (between the ages of 40 and 45) affects just 5 percent of women. In some women, menopause gets induced early owing to treatments for saving their lives, like chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. In other cases, the reason is entirely genetic, involving autoimmune disorders or even unknown reasons that cause such a change in a woman’s body. The symptoms of menopause can range from irritating to serious, including weight gain, dry eyes, and hot flashes.
