Primary ovarian insufficiency — also called premature ovarian failure — occurs when the ovaries stop functioning normally before age 40. When this happens, your ovaries don't produce normal amounts of the hormone estrogen or release eggs regularly. This condition often leads to infertility Primary ovarianinsufficiency(POI) (also called premature ovarian insufficiency, premature menopause, and premature ovarian failure) is the partial or total loss of reproductiveand hormonalfunction of the ovaries before age 40 because of folliclular(eggproducing area) dysfunction or early loss of eggs. POI can be seen as part of a continuum. Amenorrhea due to loss of ovarian function before the age of 40. Primary ovarian inssuficiency (POI) is a state of female hypergonadotropic hypogonadism. It can manifest as primary amenorrhea with onset before menarche or secondary amenorrhea
Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI), also known as premature ovarian failure, happens when a woman's ovaries stop working normally before she is 40. Many women naturally experience reduced fertility when they are about 40 years old. They may start getting irregular menstrual periods as they transition to menopause Premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) or premature menopause The average age for someone to go through the menopause, when they stop producing eggs, is about 51. However, it can happen much earlier, including when someone is still in their teens, 20s or 30s. This is known as premature ovarian insufficiency or POI Premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) is a hypergonadotropic hypogonadism condition which is characterised by impairment of ovarian function on a continuum before the age of 40 years. This age limit of 40 years has been taken as the cut-off age for POI as this age is approximately two standard deviations below the natural age of menopause
Study question: What is the optimal management of women with premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) based on the best available evidence in the literature? Summary answer: The guideline development group (GDG) formulated 99 recommendations answering 31 key questions on the diagnosis and treatment of women with POI. What is known already: NA . The patient population comprises women younger than 40 years (which includes Turner Syndrome patients) and women older than 40 years, but with disease onset before 40 Premature ovarian insufficiency. Premature ovarian failure (POF), or premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) in the updated nomenclature (), is a condition generated by the early depletion or non-functionality of the ovarian reserve (Fortuno & Labarta 2014).It affects 1-2% of women younger than 40 years of age and 0.1% of women younger than 30 years (Coulam et al. 1986), leading to defects in.
Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) (premature ovarian failure, premature menopause, or early menopause) is a condition characterized by amenorrhea, hypoestrogenism, and elevated serum gonadotropin levels in women younger than 40 years.

The guidance document by the British Menopause Society provides recommendations on the assessment and management of women with premature ovarian Insufficiency (POI). Summary of recommendation Premature ovarian insufficiency is a clinical syndrome defined by loss of ovarian activity before the age of 40. POI is characterised by menstrual disturbance (amenorrhea or oligomenorrhea) with raised gonadotropins and low estradiol. What is the prevalence of POI in the general population Premature ovarian insufficiency has been included in several guidelines on infertility, but these mention POI only briefly, with the focus on infertility (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, 2013) or menopause (de Villiers, et al., 2013)..
Premature Ovarian Insufficiency. Premature menopause, premature ovarian failure and/or premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) are terms that are generally used to describe the same condition, whatever the cause. The words are often used interchangeably, which can be confusing at first menopause. The term 'premature ovarian insufficiency' is rec-ommended because 'premature' encompasses both spontan-eous and iatrogenic conditions, and 'insufficiency', rather than failure, reflects the possibility of some intermittent ovarian activity, which can result in ovulation and even preg-nancy

ABSTRACT: Primary ovarian insufficiency describes a spectrum of declining ovarian function and reduced fecundity due to a premature decrease in initial follicle number, an increase in follicle destruction, or poor follicular response to gonadotropins. The sequelae of primary ovarian insufficiency include vasomotor symptoms, urogenital atrophy, osteoporosis and fracture, cardiovascular disease. To dissect the genetic causes underlying diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) and premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) within a family. Whole-exome sequencing of the proband was performed and DOR and Sanger sequencing was carried out to validate presence of the variant in the proband and her mother. In silico algorithms were used to analyze the mutational effect of the variant Primary ovarian insufficiency, or POI, is when the ovaries stop working normally before the age of 40. With POI, the ovary does not release an egg each month as it should. POI has been called premature ovarian failure and premature menopause Premature Ovarian Insufficiency also referred to as Premature Ovarian failure, Premature menopause, early menopause is when the ovaries stopped functioning before the age of 40.

Decreased ovarian reserve is distinct from menopause or premature ovarian failure, and also may be described as primary ovarian insufficiency 10). Although ovarian reserve tests have been applied widely, debate continues over the ability of tests currently in use to predict three related, but distinctly different, outcomes: oocyte quality, oocyte quantity, and fecundity Premature Ovarian Failure (POF), also known as premature ovarian insufficiency (POI), primary ovarian insufficiency, premature menopause, hypergonadotropic hypogonadism, is the loss of function of the ovaries before age 40.It has been estimated that POF affects 1% of the female population Unfortunately, Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI) is a condition which isn't widely talked about, despite its prevalence.
