Early menopause: What is it?
Yes. This is called early menopause, which can be caused by a number of factors, such as removal of the ovaries, certain autoimmune or endocrine disorders or cancer treatment. Medical procedures such as hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) can also trigger the end of periods. If the ovaries are also removed, estrogen and progesterone hormone production will then stop and the symptoms of menopause will ensue.
