Amenorrhea can also occur in our daily lives. After that appears, we must take it seriously. Especially in abnormal situations, more proactive prevention is needed.
What is ovarian amenorrhea
At present, ovarian amenorrhea has become a common disease and is becoming younger. The main reason for this situation is related to women's lack of emphasis on maintaining their ovaries, excessive weight loss, and other harmful reproductive health lifestyles. So, many people want to know, what is ovarian amenorrhea? The ovary is an organ that provides eggs. There is a cycle of follicular development, and the reproductive tract is unobstructed, followed by menstruation. If the ovaries are insufficient or underdeveloped, damaged or premature, and there are no sexual hormones produced in the body, the endometrium cannot grow, and periodic changes and shedding cannot occur. Menstruation cannot come, and this type of amenorrhea is called ovarian amenorrhea.
In fact, ovarian amenorrhea can be divided into two types: primary ovarian amenorrhea and secondary ovarian amenorrhea. The former has congenital ovarian hypoplasia with no eggs, while the latter has amenorrhea due to egg depletion due to various reasons. Ovarian anovulation is an important factor in women's inability to conceive. Patients with ovarian amenorrhea have infertility symptoms, but patients with premature ovarian failure receive systematic treatment. After ovulation, patients have the hope of restoring pregnancy function. There are many causes of ovarian amenorrhea, including premature ovarian failure, ovarian resection or tissue destruction, ovarian functional tumors, and polycystic ovary syndrome.
Symptoms of ovarian amenorrhea
Ovarian amenorrhea is a syndrome caused by abnormal feedback regulation mechanisms of sex hormones. Its clinical manifestations are mainly caused by persistent anovulation and androgen excess. The main symptoms include: firstly, menstrual disorders, mainly due to the frequent occurrence of amenorrhea, with the vast majority being secondary amenorrhea. Before amenorrhea, there is often sparse or excessive menstruation, and occasional alternating occurrence of amenorrhea and excessive menstruation. Secondly, after puberty, the eyebrows are thick, and the hair around the upper lip, arms, lower limbs, vulva, and anus is increased, accompanied by masculinization, such as acne and clitoral hypertrophy, because of excessive androgen secretion. Thirdly, infertility usually occurs after menarche, accompanied by infertility after marriage and inability to conceive due to menstrual disorders and lack of ovulation.
In addition, patients with ovarian amenorrhea have bilateral ovaries that are approximately 1-3 times larger than normal, with a thick capsule and a tough texture. In addition, the black acanthosis sign is also one of the symptoms of ovarian amenorrhea patients, which is another sign of excessive androgen. It often appears as a grayish brown family composed, symmetrical, and gently stroked like velvet on the skin of the patient's neck, back, armpits, and groin.
