Premature ovarian failure is also known as primary ovarian insufficiency. This condition leads to the loss of normal ovary function in women starting the age of 40.This condition results to infertility, as ovaries will irregularly produce the hormone estrogen and will not regularly release eggs.
Premature menopause and premature ovarian failure are sometimes associated with each other but they definitely aren’t the same. When having premature menopause, your periods will stop and you can’t become pregnant. However, premature ovarian failure will make you have irregular or occasional periods for years and you might even become pregnant.
When estrogen levels in the body are restored, women can overcome premature ovarian failure complications. Osteoporosis can also be prevented as well.
