Skin and Hair Changes During Menopause
After Hitting Menopause At 20, Woman Has Miracle Baby At 35
Most women reach menopause in their mid-40s to 50s, but Allison Noyce, 36, went through it at just 20 years old. Her rare condition meant she'd never be able to have children the old-fashioned way…or so doctors thought. Although devastated, she eventually accepted she would never bear children.
After getting married in 2004, she double-checked her chances of getting pregnant, but was given the same bad news; she could never have a biological child. She and her husband made it a point to enjoy as many activities as possible as a childless couple, from traveling the world to taking on outdoor sports.

Fifteen years after her first medical setback, Noyce thought she was about to face an even worse fate: While biking with her husband, she started experiencing unusual fatigue and felt a lump in her stomach. She feared cancer.
She went to the doctor to undergo tests and got incredibly happy news. She was cancer-freeandpregnant with her first baby. Even more unbelievable, she was already eight months along.
The couple was, of course, thrilled, despite the short notice. "Richard and I rushed 'round in a haze of excitement buying baby clothes," Noyce told theDailyMail."One friend donated a pushchair, another gave me a book about pregnancy—I skipped to the last month."

So how did she not realize she was expecting? "In hindsight I'd had signs, but put morning sickness down to a virus and tiredness down to being busy," she said.
Sophie was born just 12 days after Noyce learned she was going to be a mother, and weighed a healthy 6lb 4oz. "She was perfect, beautiful." Sophie's now 16 months old, and her parents are still as overjoyed to have Sophie in their lives. Doctors remain baffled as to how Noyce was able to get pregnant, making Sophie a true miracle baby.
