Abstract

The Indian Menopause Society recognizes an earlier age of menopause of the Indian women as compared to her Caucasian counterpart. Therefore, the age of premature menopause too would be advanced in comparison to them. Hence, according to the IMS 2015 guidelines, the age for premature menopause is less than 38 years and not 40 years. Women with untreated premature menopause are at increased risk of developing osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease dementia, cognitive decline, and Parkinson’s and all-cause mortality. Management is essentially dependent upon the requirement of the patient such as fertility desired, fertility not desired, and special conditions.
