A teenage menopause story

What it’s like to hit menopause at the young age of 14

When most people think of menopause, they probably think of aging. Still, for one in 100 menstruators, menopause can happen years (even decades) before the “normal” onset of 45–50. The loss of estrogen that accompanies premature menopause is associated with an increased risk of dementia, sexual dysfunction, heart disease, mood disorders, osteoporosis, and even a reduced lifespan. Still, menopause is something that is misunderstood by most and even dismissed by the medical professionals we turn to for help.
