What determines the age when women begin menopause

From Helium.com ----- an article on the factors that determine when a woman will go through menopause. Oftentimes, women will go through menopause about the same age their mothers did, but not always----and many peri/menopausal women do not still have their mom's around to ask. I know my mother did not start peri/menopause until her late 40's, but by 40 I was definitely in peri/menopause (and had a hytsterectomy at 44).
