How old was your mother when she went into menopause?

They say you should go into menopause around the same time as your own mother does. So I'm just curious if any of you were the same.

  • my mother started in her late 30's and I actually started at around age 33. Doc's didn't believe me, but I had my last period at 39. Even then they said it had to be something else, because I was too young, but my FSH was sky high, so they finally started me on hormones.
