A simple test 'could predict menopause'
Melbourne (PTI): If scientists are to be believed, women planning to delay motherhood could soon be able to take a simple blood test to determine the period of fertility they're left with.
In their study, a team at the Queensland University of Technology looked at the relationship of a reproductive hormone and menopause -- they found a wide variation in the age of menopause which for most women occurred between 40 and 60 years of age.
"But we know from studies of natural populations where timing of having children is not influenced by contraception, that natural fertility drops off ten years before menopause.
"This means that with the variation in menopausal age some women could become infertile as early as their 30s. It is then difficult to become pregnant without artificial intervention," the study's co-author Prof Malcolm Faddy said.
