Abstract

The mean age of the menopause by probit analysis in a group of apparently healthy Australian women was 50.4 years. No relationship was found between this value and the age of the menarche or the number of children born or the age at the time of birth of the first child. The mean duration of the menstruating life was 26.3 years with a range of from 17 to 44 years.
