Ten percent of Australian women experiencing early menopause

Health reporter for The Sydney Morning Herald Melissa Cunningham exposes the shocking news that 10 percent of Australian women experience early menopause, a rare condition which causes ovarian insufficiency in women under 40 years of age. This is a huge number of young women and is extremely alarming.

Lorena Beatriz was 25 when she was diagnosed with early onset menopause and she is not alone for 10 percent of Australian women experience early menopause. It is very rare for the condition known as premature ovarian failure to occur at such an early age with the annual incidence at 10 per 100,000 between 15 and 29 years of age.

According to Health Talk Australia:

Early menopause (menopause before age 45) or premature ovarian insufficiency (loss of ovarian function before age 40 years) are complex health conditions with many different causes, both known and unknown.

In up to 90% of women with spontaneous premature ovarian insufficiency, the cause is unexplained.

POI can be associated with autoimmune disorders. Autoimmune thyroid disease is the most common autoimmune association with POI; however, adrenal, parathyroid, type 1 diabetes mellitus, pernicious anaemia, myasthenia gravis and connective tissue disorders are also associated.

If POI is associated with autoimmune type illnesses then what is causing the autoimmunity in the first place?


The Australasian society of clinical immunology and allergy define autoimmune diseases

as a broad range of related diseases in which a person’s immune system produces an inappropriate response against its own cells, tissues and/or organs, resulting in inflammation and damage.

Autoimmune diseases are now soaring all over the world.

What has changed during the last few decades of human existence to bring about such devastating levels of human illness.

In Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness, the author Thomas Cowan begins with a description of how when he was growing up he never heard of children with chronic illness or of children who took prescription medicines.

Many of us had horrible diets, yet chronic disease among children was relatively unknown. No one had ever heard of autism, let alone a family member with autism.

Cowan writes that the cause is environmental requiring us to do something about it. The problem as he sees it stems from the huge drop in infectious disease which ‘train the immune system’.

During his practice he has treated many children who had childhood infectious diseases such as whooping cough, chicken pox, rubella, mumps and measles. These children recovered well and did not develop complications.

Decades later:

1 in 2.5 children have an allergy

1 in 6  children has a developmental disability

1 in 9 children has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder ADHD

1 in 11 children has asthma

1 in 13 children has severe food allergies

1 in 36 children has autism

In this interview Cowan explains how our wonderful immune systems have been ravaged by vaccines.

Vaccination could well be one of the causes of this alarming increase in female infertility. And one vaccine in particular-the HPV vaccine, Gardasil.

Gardasil and Premature Ovarian Insufficiency

In the research for my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed I discovered that although mainstream media remains silent about the problems emanating from this vaccination program, some doctors are reporting the adverse effects on young women’s health. In the BMJ (British Medical Journal) Case Reports authors Deidre Little and Harvey Rodrick Grenville Ward of Australia reported the case of a patient with amenorrhoea who noticed that her usual regular menstrual cycle had changed, becoming irregular and then scant after Gardasil. The authors explain that it is very rare for the condition known as premature ovarian failure to occur at such an early age and that the annual incidence is 10 per 100,000 between 15 and 29 years of age. Premature ovarian failure is a serious health event for young girls and one that adversely affects their ability to have children. Dr Little has continued her research into HPV vaccines after having several more patients report to her with what is now called premature ovarian insufficiency. These young women report having infrequent periods which continue to dwindle and finally cease.

In Adolescent Premature Ovarian Insufficiency Following Human Papillomavirus Vaccination Dr Deirdre Little and Dr Harvey Rodrick Grenville Ward discuss a case seen in general practice: Ref: Journal of Investigative Medicine

Menarche had commenced at age 10 years, and was followed by regular menses. The first 2 HPV4 vaccinations were received at age 14 years and the third vaccine after turning 15 years in 2008 (Department of Health New South Wales. School vaccination programme. Vaccinations administered February 18, May 23, and October 24 in 2008). The patient reports “prior to this, my periods were like clockwork.” The period due after the third vaccination dose was 2 weeks late and was the first late period she had experienced. The next period occurred 2 months later. The next and final menstruation occurred 9 months later, approximately 1 year after completion of the third HPV4 vaccination. Hot flushes developed and 10 kg weight gain was noted over the next year. Previously present acne improved. Pelvic ultrasound was unremarkable apart from a 3.7-mm endometrial width and the absence of visible ovarian follicles. She had not become sexually active, had no history of drug or alcohol usage and there was no history of trauma, surgery or of significant past illness. There was no family history of premature menopause. She was allergic to benzoyl peroxide. POF was diagnosed just before her 17th birthday.

We live in a toxic world, one in which HPV vaccines are given to young people some who may already be dealing with compromised immune systems. The vaccine continues to be given despite the thousands of reports of ill health occurring in many young girls and boys who have had this vaccine. We cannot continue to ignore the extremely serious adverse effects of Gardasil such as premature ovarian insufficiency experienced as premature menopause in our young women.

  1. So what this says is that early onset menopause occurs a thousand times more often than the condition known as premature ovarian failure.
