Menopause age may predict daughter's fertility

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The age of a mother at menopause may foreshadow her daughter's fertility.

Danish researchers examined the ovaries of daughters comparing them with the age of menopause in their mothers.

The researchers found reserves in ovaries fell quicker in women whose mothers had menopause before the age of 45, compared with mothers who had it later.

They say this is the first study to suggest ovaries are influenced by heredity.
