Early Menstruation Linked To Cardiovascular Diseases:- As per the study, early menstruation increases hot flushes and night sweats even decades later after menopause. University of Queensland researchers conducted research and this was published in BJOG: an International Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology. They analyzed the data of more than 18,000 middle-aged women from Australia, USA and UK. Dr Hsin-Fang Chung says that the study shows that women who started menstruation during an early age (from the age of 11 or before) had 50% risk of experiencing hot flushes and night sweats which are known as vasomotor symptoms.
This group of women was compared to that with women who had their first periods at 14 years or after the age. The risk was higher among the younger women. Early menstruation is even linked to type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. InterLACE project leader Professor Gita Mishra says some of them are even impacted due to obesity. All those who got early menstruation are asked to engage in a health promotion program and weight management program in their adulthood.
