Mayo Clinic Minute – Menopause and the heart connection

Women experience menopause at different ages — and different ways — which can, among other things, affect their heart health.

The average age of natural menopause in the U.S is 52. There’s early menopause, under the age of 45 years, and premature menopause, under the age of 40 years, that may affect a very small group of women. There is also premature ovarian insufficiency.

Dr. Chrisandra Shufelt says it’s important for anyone who experiences menopause to think about their heart health.
