The Bump Expert

If you’re under age 40 and have gone a full year without getting your period, you may have developed premature ovarian failure, also known as ovarian hypofunction, which means a reduced function of the ovaries. One of the ways your doctor will be able to determine whether you have premature ovarian failure is by measuring levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which is elevated in women with this condition. It can be caused by a number of factors, including autoimmune or thyroid disorders that disrupt the normal function of your ovaries, genetics, or as a side effect of chemotherapy or radiation. Along with not getting your period, you may also have menopause-like symptoms, for example: hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and mood swings. Estrogen therapy can help minimize some of the more uncomfortable symptoms of menopause and prevent bone loss, but it won’t do much to help you get pregnant, if that’s your goal. Unfortunately, less than 10 percent of women with premature ovarian failure are able to conceive, although the odds go up to 50 percent if you use fertilized donor eggs.

What is premature ovarian failure?

My name is Camille bruno Valdez my partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com , for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will either conceive in February 2014 or March 2014,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Dahiru, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine,
