    exposure and prolonged exposure to radiation. In this case
    menopause can occur 10-12 years earlier.

  6. Autoimmune diseases.
  7. Genetic anomaly responsible for early termination
    ovarian function. Sometimes the daughter of menopause occurs in the same
    age, as her mother – and so on the chain.

    ovarian dysfunction under the influence of the X chromosome.
