The average age of onset for the symptoms of menopause is between 48 and 52 years old. However it can start at a much younger age or it may pass unnoticed until your late 50's. Most commonly women present with symptoms from age 45 onwards. Women who present with symptoms under the age of 40 may have premature ovarian failure. Early onset of menopause is often common within a family i.e. your mother or your sister also started having menopause symptoms at an early age. Women who start menopause at an earlier age are at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis later on in life.
