CONTEXT Timing of menopause is largely influenced by genetic factors. Because menopause occurs when the follicle pool in the ovaries has become exhausted, genes involved in primordial follicle recruitment can be considered as candidate genes for timing of menopause. OBJECTIVE The aim was to study the association of 23 tagging single nucleotide… CONTINUE READING
