Abstract: Girls who are born as the days warm confront hot flashes sooner, according to new work. Women with March birthdays experience menopause nearly a year and a half earlier than those born in October. The findings add to the idea that the fetal environment can alter health in later life, although researchers aren't sure what triggers the difference in menopause timing.
