Diagnosed with POF at age 30?

Diagnosed with POF at age 30?

    • <span  class="bbp-author-name"><noscript><img src=


      I have a family history of premature ovarian failure (both my aunt and my mom at ages 34 and 35 respectively). It’s becoming increasingly worrying because I’m considering becoming a mom now. And, by coincidence, I did my regular hormone analysis on September, 14, because I have my gynecological check-up next week. I give you the results of the test:

      Progesterone: 0.8
      Prolactin: 10.3
      FSH 4.60
      17β-estradiol: 43
      LH 1.70
      TSH: 2.85
      Free t4: 0.93
      Free t3: 2.94

      The lab specialist told me such values may be an indicator of POF, since they are a bit low. What is your opinion? BTW, I use NuvaRing for what it is worth.

    • Hello,

      In light of the results of your hormone analysis, I can say there is no reason to worry because every parameter is within its normal levels.

      However, even if this analysis is not an indicator of POF, I recommend that you continue to take hormone analysis once a year to monitor how hormonal variations develop (in case there is any).

      Best regards.
