Blood Test May Reveal Menopause Age | Women’s Health

Doctors mayِ beِ able toِ predict asِ early asِ a woman’s late 30s theِ age atِ which sheِ will eventually experience menopause, based onِ howِ quickly theِ levels ofِ one hormone inِ herِ blood change, according toِ a newِ study.
Researchers studied 293 women inِ their 30s andِ 40s, takingِ blood samples overِ several years toِ measure theirِ levels ofِ anti-mullerian hormone, orِ AMH, whichِ isِ produced byِ the ovaries.
AMH levels haveِ added anotherِ indicator, ofِ the age menopause willِ begin, saidِ study author Ellen Freeman, a research professor atِ the University ofِ Pennsylvania.
