Menopause before the age of 40 is considered early or premature menopause. One specific medical reason is premature ovarian failure. Technically, this isn’t the same as premature menopause. In the former, the ovaries do not work normally past the age of 40. Women who suffer from premature ovarian failure still continue to experience menstrual periods along with infertility. This is normally accompanied by primary ovarian insufficiency. Premature menopause also stems from treatments for cancers and other conditions involving radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
