Your Month Of Birth Affects Menopause.

Scientists from the University of Modena in Italy found that women born in March have the earliest age of menopause, while those with an October birthday have the latest.

"The age of menopause is influenced by the season in which the female is born," said Dr Angelo Cagnacci, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at the university.

The findings support the theory that environmental factors before birth have an impact on the baby's adult life.

In a study of 3,000 Italian women, the researchers found there was an 18-month difference in the age of menopause depending on birth month.

After controlling for factors such as smoking, weight and age at puberty, which can affect menopause, the researchers said women born in October reached the menopause at 50 years and 3 months, compared to 48 years and 9 months for those born in March.
