It is very disappointing for a woman when she has an ovarian failure at an early age. Women who have a premature ovarian failure (POF) may experience some symptoms close to that of menopause such as hot flushes, no period, and vaginal dryness. Usually, if a woman has POF, she’ll begin to have irregular periods which will eventually stop altogether. Premature Ovarian Failure may occur suddenly over one to two months or gradually over several years time frame.
Premature ovarian failure put simply is early menopause. Normally a woman will start to go through menopause between the ages of 42 and 56. POF occurs due to estrogen deficiency and thyroid problems. Pelvic surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy can also cause POF, as an uncommonly severe pelvic inflammatory disease. It is very important to consult their doctor at the earliest and start their treatment at the best Fertility clinic. Oocyte preservation/freezing is a very lucrative option for these women. Other options are IVF, IVF with oocyte donation.
