Premature Ovarian Failure

Posted by e-Medical PPT Tuesday, May 11, 2010
Premature ovarian failure is meant by  loss of normal function of  ovaries before the age of 40. If  ovaries fail, they don't produce  normal amounts of the hormone estrogen — which can lead to infertility and other problems.
Premature ovarian failure is sometimes referred to as premature menopause, but the two conditions are not exactly the same: Women with premature menopause stop having periods, while women with premature ovarian failure may have sporadic periods for years — and may even become pregnant.
When premature ovarian failure does cause infertility, however, fertility treatment is unlikely to be successful. Restoring estrogen levels helps prevent other complications of premature ovarian failure, such as osteoporosis.
