About 14% have got late menopause. If women begin menopause after age 55, the risk increases. 15% women have had not had children, and 10% had their first child after age 30. Study found women using birth control pills (47%), have slightly greater risk. 9% women’s breast feeding lasts below 1 year. And about 7% patient never breast fed their child. About 40% female patients do not walk as exercise.
