Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for your question and for finding EmpowHER.
Menopause happens at a different time for individual women. However, the median age for onset of menopause is 51. A good reference would be to recognize when your mother or grandmother went through menopause--you likely will follow in a similar fashion. Have you been experiencing any perimenopause symptoms or other symptoms yet?
Here is EmpowHER's menopause page for your reference. There are some great articles and expert interviews about all things related to menopause. Let us know if you have any more questions.
