Premature menopause can mean the end of fertility. The condition affects 1% of women under the age of 40, one in 1,000 under the age of 30 and one in 10,000 under the age of 20. In the UK, each year, 110,000 women will experience premature menopause between the ages of 12 and 40. [With external links to current evidence and summaries]
