What is premature ovarian failure?

RPC reviewer comment - the new name for this condition is 'Primary Ovarian Insuffiency' Normal menopause starts between the ages of 45 and 55. When it occurs too early (under 40 years old), it is called primary ovarian insufficiency. Causes can include genetic disorders, or medical treatments such as chemotherapy. Certain tests are recommended for evaluation, but in 90% of cases, no clear cause is identified.

Symptoms of premature ovarian failure

  • I experience hot flushes or feelings of overheating

  • Abnormal menstrual cycles e.g. too early or too late

  • Difficulty getting pregnant

  • Abnormal period length or flow

Questions your doctor may ask to check for premature ovarian failure

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose premature ovarian failure

  • Do you experience any hot flushes or feelings of overheating?

  • Do you have abnormal menstrual cycles e.g. too early or too late

  • Are you having trouble getting pregnant despite trying for some time?

  • Are your periods abnormal e.g. in duration or amount of bleeding?

Treatment for premature ovarian failure

Treatment for this condition aims to correct hormone imbalances and protect organs such as the heart and bones until the age of normal menopause. This may be achieved through hormone replacement therapy. The doctor may also prescribe Vitamin D and calcium supplements to prevent bone weakening. The younger the onset of 'Primary Ovarian Insufficiency', the more likely treatment by a specialist will be recommended.
