What if I have symptoms of menopause before age 40?

Dr. Kenneth Adler
Family Medicine 40 years experience
Menopause before age 40 is called "premature menopause" and is not normal. Other conditions, some more serious, can cause similar symptoms. Thus a full gynecological evaluation with a physician, nurse practitioner or physician's assistant is in order if you develop menopause symptoms before age 40.
