Primary Ovarian Insufficiency – Causes, Risk Factors, Symptoms, Treatment and More

What Is Primary Ovarian Insufficiency?

Primary ovarian insufficiency, also known as premature ovarian failure happens in women when their ovaries do not function properly before they reach 40 years old. This condition subsequently affects the frequent release of eggs or reduced production of estrogen hormone. People with this health issue may experience regular or irregular periods for a long period and would even become pregnant. However, infertility may occur if they are not treated early and properly. Restoring levels of estrogen in the body can help prevent several complications. [1]
