Premature Ovarian Failure

What is primary ovarian insufficiency (POI)?

Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI), also known as premature ovarian failure, happens when a woman's ovaries stop working normally before she is 40.

For women with POI, irregular periods and reduced fertility start before the age of 40. Sometimes it can start as early as the teenage years.
