If you wish to know the age at which you will go through menopause, it usually depends on several factors. Of course, your age will play a role, but it is also dependent on the age at which your mother experienced menopause. Why? Because menopause is genetically linked, and you will probably fall within a few years of the age your mother attained her menopause. However, this is not always the rule. Many women enter this phase early – before 45 – without any known reason. For example, if your mother’s menopausal age was 40 but her siblings and your grandmother attained menopause at the average age of 50, it cannot be said with certainty whether you will follow her path or theirs. Other factors that play a role in influencing menopause include smoking, ovarian surgery, ethnicity, and chemotherapy.
