In brief: Spectrum of disorder

"Primary ovarian insufficiency describes a spectrum of declining ovarian functions and reduced fecundity due premature decrease in follicle number, an increase in follicle destruction or poor response to gonadotropins".
This abnormal "Hypoestrogenic state" increases risks of vasomotor symptoms, urogenital atrophy, osteoporosis, fractures, cardiovascular diseases and other issues if left untreated
