OVARIAN FAILURE, PREMATURE

Premature failure of ovulation associated with hypergonadotropinism and hypoestrogenism in women under the age of 40. The aetiology appears to be multifactorial and much cases are idiopathic. When follicles are gift but the ovaries are unable to respond to gonadotropins, resistant ovary syndrome results and this may be associated with autoimmune malady. Even when there is a loss of ovarian follicles, it is not always complete. Permanent and irreversible loss of follicles is termed premature menopause (menopause, premature).
