Around 25% of women who are carriers of Fragile X will undergo Primary Ovarian Insufficiency / early menopause.  If anyone has undiagnosed early menopause they should be screened for the FMR1 premutation.

In this 2-minute produced by Healthed for Fragile X Association of Australia, Prof Baber discusses the link between Fragile X and Primary Ovarian Insufficiency.
