Dear Dearest Q&A's

When does menopause occur?

Natural menopause occurs in 25% of women by age 47, in 50% by age 50, 75% by age 52 and 95% by age 55. Menopause due to surgical removal of the ovaries occurs in almost 30% of U.S. women past the age of 50.

This question has been asked numerous times. See my archived questions and answers. Some provide more information than others.

Also, read the articles, An Introduction To Menopause and I strongly suggest interacting with the thousands of other women who are part of the Power Surge Message Board.
