Mother’s age at menopause a predictor of daughter’s fertility

Danish researchers compared levels of anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) and antral follicle count (AFC) in 527 adult women with their mother’s age at menopause. They found serum-AMH concentration in women whose mothers were menopausal before 45 years declined by 8.6% per year compared to 4.2% for women whose mothers’ menopause occurred later than 55 years.
