Homeopathy Medicine for Premature Ovarian Failure

197

Primary ovarian insufficiency, also known as premature ovarian failure, is a condition that frequently results in infertility and occurs when the ovaries stop producing eggs and producing estrogen at a normal rate before the age of 40.

Premature menopause and primary ovarian insufficiency are not the same conditions; while women with primary ovarian insufficiency can have irregular or infrequent periods for years and possibly become pregnant, women with premature menopause stop having periods and are unable to conceive.

Women with primary ovarian insufficiency can avoid some side effects of low estrogen, like osteoporosis, by restoring their estrogen levels.

SYMPTOMS OF PREMATURE OVATIAN FAILURE

Menopause and estrogen deficiency share many of the same signs and symptoms as primary ovarian insufficiency, such as:

  • Period irregularity or skips that may develop after a pregnancy, stop using birth control pills, last for years,
  • Difficulty getting pregnant
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Dry eyes
  • Irritability or difficulty concentrating
  • Decreased sexual desire

CAUSES OF PREMATURE OVATIAN FAILURE

Possible causes of primary ovarian insufficiency include:

  • Primary ovarian insufficiency is linked to chromosomal defects, such as mosaicism, which are a type of genetic disorder.Turner syndromewhere a woman has one normal X chromosome, one that has been altered, and fragile X syndrome, in which the X chromosomes are brittle and break.
  • Toxins-Other toxins like cigarette smoke, chemicals, pesticides, and viruses might hasten ovarian failure. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are common causes of toxicity-induced ovarian failure. These therapies can damage genetic material in cells.
  • Uncertainty surrounds the cause of the immune response, but exposure to a virus is one possibility. **An immune system response to ovarian tissue (autoimmune disease)**In this uncommon form, our immune system produces antibodies against our ovarian tissue, harming the egg-containing follicles and damaging the egg.
  • Unknown factors-Primary ovarian insufficiency frequently has an idiopathic (unknown) cause. Further testing may be advised to determine the cause, but this is not always the case.

RISK FACTORS

Primary ovarian insufficiency is more likely to occur in us as a result of the following factors:

  • Primary ovarian insufficiency is uncommon before the age of 30, but it is possible in younger women, even in teens, and the risk increases between the ages of 35 and 40.
  • Family history: Our risk of developing primary ovarian insufficiency is higher if our family has a history of the condition.
  • Ovarian surgery-Primary ovarian insufficiency is more likely following ovaries-related operations.

COMPLICATIONS OF PREMATURE OVARIAN FAILURE

Primary ovarian insufficiency has the following complications:

  • Infertility-Primary ovarian insufficiency can have the side effect of making it difficult to become pregnant, though in a few rare cases pregnancy may be possible up until the egg supply is exhausted.
  • Osteoporosis-Women with low estrogen levels are more likely to develop osteoporosis, which results in weak, brittle bones that are more likely to break than healthy bones. Estrogen helps maintain strong bones.
  • Depression or anxiety-Some women experience depression or anxiety due to the possibility of infertility and other issues brought on by low estrogen levels.
  • Heart disease-Our risk may increase if we lose estrogen too soon.
