Premature Ovarian Insufficiency

What is Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI)?

In Menopause Before 40 and Spontaneous Premature Ovarian Insufficiency the Australasian Menopause Society elaborate on:

“Premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) is a loss of function of the ovaries in women who are less than 40 years of age. The ovaries do not release eggs regularly and do not produce typical amounts of oestrogen.

Women with spontaneous POI have irregular or no periods. Women may or may not have menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes. Approximately one in every 100 women will spontaneously have POI and enter menopause before the age of 40. Spontaneous early menopause (menopause between 40 and 45 years) affects approximately five in every 100 women”.

Premature Menopause

Is POI different from premature menopause?

In Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI): Summary – What Is Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (POI)? the Medline Plus explain:

“POI is different from premature menopause With premature menopause, your periods stop before age 40. You can no longer get pregnant. The cause can be natural or it can be a disease, surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. With POI, some women still have occasional periods. They may even get pregnant. In most cases of POI, the cause is unknown”.
