Video: The link between Fragile X and Primary Ovarian Insufficiency

July 23rd, 2017

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.

Professor Rod Baber is from the University of Sydney, Royal North Shore Hospital, and former head of the International Menopause Society.

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.
