... if you know your family’s history...
i am trying to see if there is a link between menarche and menopause - or rather do women have a certain no. Of child birthing years.
For instance both my mom and i started menarche at new 11 and finished by 47/48. Went into peri-menopause by 43.
our family is VERY fertile during perimenopause and many kids were born as surprises with huge age difference between siblings from same parents.
My maternal gma, mom and me had probably 35 years of child birthing years.
i have rarely come across someone who started late and had an early menopause (apart from medical reasons), and same the other way too.
Many are very shocked that I finished menopause before i hit 50. Hey i am not complaining.
How is it with your family - if you know. Or even thoughts on this welcome.
