Is there a link between fragile-X syndrome and premature menopause?

Yes, there is a suggested link with Fragile X, and there have been several reports showing those females in families with a fragile X male experienced an earlier menopause. In some studies menopause has been shown to occur several years earlier than normal, but in some women it can occur much younger (under age 40). Not all studies have shown a relationship, and there a lot of research is required to try and understand more about it.
