Hello and welcome to HCM,
The age range for menopause is variable.
Some women are menopausal at 45 and some at 55 years so the age is not fixed and quite variable.
As menopause advances, the frequency of periods decreases.
However, it cannot be assessed in your case since you are on IUCD.
The sex drive and vaginal wetness does not immediately disappear.
The test confirmatory for menopause is raised urine levels of FSH.
At this point of time you can get the IUCD removed.
If you are apprehensive of the symptoms of menopause you can always get hormone replacement therapy.

Thanks and take care
