Premature ovarian failure leads to amenorrhea and infertility. How much do you know? At present, women are getting more and more severe due to the phenomenon of premature ovarian failure, and the age of onset is getting younger. The ovary is an important reproductive organ for women. Without timely maintenance, it can cause female infertility. Regarding premature ovarian failure leading to amenorrhea and infertility, let us know together.
Regarding amenorrhea and infertility caused by premature ovarian failure, experts from the Reproductive Center of Beijing Jiade Deyun Hospital gave the following explanation:
In recent years, more and more women have been attacked by "premature ovarian failure", and the trend is significantly younger.
The ovaries are the main reproductive endocrine organs of women. They are located on both sides of the uterus, one on the left and the other on the right. It has two main functions, one is the function of reproduction, that is, the production of mature follicles and ovulation; the second is the secretion of hormones, mainly estrogen, and also a small amount of androgens to maintain female-specific signs. Normal women's ovarian function begins to decline gradually around 45 to 50 years old, but in recent years, it has been found that the number of patients with premature ovarian failure has increased significantly, and even adolescent women can be seen in outpatient clinics. Premature ovarian failure refers to amenorrhea and infertility caused by a woman for some reason before the age of 40. It is a disease characterized by estrogen deficiency and increased gonadotropin levels. The incidence of patients with primary amenorrhea is 10% to 28%.
Premature ovarian failure in women indicates a thin endometrium, lower estradiol (E2), and lower progesterone (P) levels in the blood. According to the principle of the menstrual regulation axis (reproductive gonad axis), the ovaries produce reduced estradiol and progesterone. There are three possible causes of premature ovarian failure: First, the follicular estrogen (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) in the blood are too high, and the feedback inhibits the ovaries from producing estradiol and progesterone. This condition is called premature ovarian failure. First, there is a decrease in menstrual flow, 1-2 months after the menstrual cycle, and finally amenorrhea. Because of irregular menstruation or amenorrhea, it will naturally lead to infertility. Second, some are accompanied by an increase in testosterone (T) in the blood. Elevated testosterone can neutralize estradiol in the blood, reduce estradiol, and affect the maturation of follicles and normal ovulation. At the same time, too much testosterone can prevent follicles and ovulation, and promote its shrinkage and atresia. As there is no normal ovulation, infertility can result. The third is the suppression of normal ovarian function, which makes ovarian function low, which can be manifested as thin menstruation, reduced menstruation, no ovulation and insufficient luteal function, and finally amenorrhea. This can also cause infertility.
