Ovarian dysfunction is a diagnosis, which involves a number of pathological disorders that led to the imbalance of the female reproductive system. Ovarian dysfunction leads to disturbance of their basic functions: the process of hormone production and ovulation, which ultimately affects the whole body, including female fertility.
Causes of dysfunction
Ovarian dysfunction most often results from hormonal failure. Disorders of the anterior part of the pituitary gland (pituitary gland), where the production of the hormones required for the normal course of all stages of the menstrual cycle and ovulation, lead to negative health consequences.
Factors leading to hormonal disorders:
Infectious and inflammatory processes in the pelvic organs.
Diseases of the uterus and ovaries (tumors, endometriosis, adenomyosis, uterine fibroids, cervical cancer, etc.).
Congenital or acquired diseases of the endocrine system (hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, polycystic ovaries, Ienco-Cushing syndrome, etc.).
Increased blood sugar, obesity and high blood pressure
Incorrect attachment of the intrauterine device to the uterine cavity.
Continuation of pregnancy - spontaneous or artificial.
Stress, over-solicitation, abrupt climate change, administration of certain drugs.
Diagnosis and treatment
The basis of an appropriate treatment is the diagnosis of the primary cause of ovarian dysfunction. The first stage of the diagnosis is the visit of a gynecologist or a gynecologist-endocrinologist. The indications and examinations are to be prescribed only by the doctor. Most often, for the diagnosis, the ultrasound of the pelvic organs is performed; hormonal tests are prescribed, etc. The treatment program aims to restore the ovarian function.
As a result, the menstrual cycle is normalized, the ovum maturation takes place, ovulation, and the normal functionality of the female ovaries is restored. The consequences of ovarian dysfunction consist not only of the irregular menstrual cycle, but of a number of complications. Consequences that can occur: infertility, miscarriage, autonomic disorders (excessive sweating, increased heart rate), endometriosis, uterine fibroids, etc.
