There is an increased risk of heart failure among women who entered menopause naturally at such a young age is 40% higher than the women who have entered menopause at the age between 50 and 54, the average is 51 years.

And for every one year increase in age at menopause, the rate of heart failure is decreased for about 2%, according to the study.
