Premature Ovarian Failure

Premature ovarian failure can be described as a woman not being able to grow and release an egg during a regular, monthly menstrual cycle. This medical condition results in a woman’s infertility.

  • Not producing the hormone known as estrogen to create and deliver eggs
  • Not producing another hormone known as progesterone to prepare the lining of the uterus for implantation and growth of an embryo

Women experiencing premature ovarian failure are best advised to consider IVF using donor eggs. – Dr. Randy Morris.

IVF Using Donor Eggs

Premature ovarian failure is a common cause of infertility. Do not despair – women suffering from this complication have options through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) using donor eggs- See IVF1 Using Donor Eggs.The IVF procedure is simply removing and fertilizing a donor’s eggs with sperm in a lab.While the donor’s egg is growing, being retrieved and fertilized, your uterine lining will be enhanced by supplementing the hormone known as progesterone. The fertilized egg (embryo) is then placed in your uterus. Progesterone allows your hormones to balance in order for a pregnancy to be maintained.

Premature Ovarian Failure Treatment

Other recommendations for premature ovarian failure entail using medication therapies to restore a woman’s estrogen and progesterone levels.Treatment can be simple:

  • Estrogen Therapy
  • Progesterone Therapy
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin D

Estrogen therapy can compensate for a woman’s lack of natural estrogen production.

Progesterone therapy creates a better uterine environment for the successful implantation of an embryo.

Calcium and Vitamin D are essential supplements in a woman’s quest to achieve and maintain a healthy pregnancy.Dr. Randy Morris recommends:

  • 1,000 mg of Calcium every day
  • 600 to 800 IUs (International Units) of Vitamin D daily
