Project Description

Some women may have early menopause due to poorly functioning ovaries. Women with Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (POI), and women with early menopause may experience symptoms of menopause at an earlier age. Women who undergo menopause before the age of 40 have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and related fractures, and dementia, as well as premature aging, than women who undergo natural menopause at a later age.
These younger women, as long as they don’t have any contraindications, will benefit from hormone therapy and the most effective dose may be higher than for older women.
