Pinpointing risks for early menopause
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Two new studies pinpoint risks for early menopause.
A University of California study found women who have one of two genes linked to breast cancer started menopause in their mid to late 40's.
Most women start in their mid-50's.
In another study, University of Pennsylvania researchers found earlier menopause for women with chronic inflammatory diseases such as lupus.
Doctors hope the findings will help women make fertility decisions at a younger age.
