It depends on quality of life ,medical facility , diet structures and care for woman in society , Change in life style , education and awareness and equality between both sex and regular . medical check up may improve life of fair sex and exact dates in indian society can be worked out and address timely.

Yes menopause bring the cardiovascular disease risks to same level as men.So does the premature menopause due to any cause including surgical.The situations in Asian countries including India may be quite different to that of studied country,due to so many facts like polygamy ,multiple pregnancies and diet .However a similar study in context of India is required which is lacking. So it is not wise to draw the conclusion from the study done in absolutely different backgrounds.

Mostly women tend to ignore lifestyle changes and live sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle which increases there chances. If at all they will eat proper diet and do proper exercise even after menopause they can lower chances of CAD

Estrogen has a mix of positive and negative effect on CVS. Some are understood by studies and many are yet to be understood. Early menopause does increase the risk of CAD in women and even those who underwent hysterectomy are found to be at higher risk and not benefitted by HRT. Menopausal transition and many uterine disorders can be treated well with Homoeopathic treatment and it has been observed that hypercholestrolaemia and mild levels of coronary artery blockages can be handled well with holistic approach, reducing morbidity and mortality.
