I don't know anyone who has but it can be possible. My mom had early menopause right when she turned 30 years old. Has your friend seen a doctor? Many times it means daily medications.

It's possible but unlikely, and usually due to an underlying cause.



More often then not, it's more like a thyroid issue or something that causes a person to stop getting their period rather then actual premature ovarian failure, you know? There are LOTS of reasons to stop getting your period at a young age, that don't mean "menopause" in terms of your ovaries shutting down for good.

Yes, she said they have ran lots of other tests. I'm not exactly sure what all they checked, but I know they have checked her thyroid and it was normal.

Did they just check TSH? I know sometimes that doesn't work well and they need to check free T4/free T3 to get a better idea of thyroid issues.



However, it can be other things too. Cysts are a big one. How long has she gone without a period?

She was told years ago that she did have a few cysts on her ovaries, but she hasn't said anything about having those checked again. Her periods have always been pretty weird though. She didn't get her first period til she was like 15. She went to a doctor and they had to give her medication to make it start. For a few years after that she had somewhat normal cycles, then about 2 years ago she stopped getting a period completely. Her doctor has been using medication to induce a period for the past few months. She does have mild cerebral palsy, so I don't know if that plays a roll in her cycles or not.

Maybe. PCOS maybe?



There are a lot of things at play. It is possible, of course, but at that age it is unlikely for it to happen all on its own. They can run some tests (FSH, LH, estrogen, things like that) to check for menopause, but again, at that age I think it's more likely that it's the symptom of somethign else going on.
