Mom’s menopause age predicts egg reserve in daughter

CBC / Radio Canada 

Going into the important to know file…..

CBC News reports on a paper from the Oxford University Press on behalf of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology which suggests that a mother’s age at menopause may predict when her daughter’s fertility declines.

Population studies suggest an association between the age of menopause among mothers and daughters. Now researchers have used hormone levels and counts of eggs remaining in ovaries to estimate how fertility may relate to mother’s age of menopause.
