My mother started menapause around 36, but she was told it was from the high, constant doses of prednisone. This was in the late '60s and they really didn't understand CD or prednisone like they do today. So I really can't say. My maternal grandmother didn't start menapause early, and I haven't started early, no sign yet and I'm 43. So maybe it was the prednisone.
