In the study “The role of multiparity and maternal age at first pregnancy in the association between early menarche and metabolic syndrome among middle-aged and older women” by Rocha et al, which was performed in Brazil, the authors demonstrated that early menarche was associated with a higher odds of metabolic syndrome later in life. But what was most relevant was that the age of first pregnancy (related to menarche) may contribute to this association between early menarche and metabolic syndrome, providing further evidence for the adverse consequences of teenage pregnancy.
