Premature Ovarian Failure (POF), also known as premature ovarian insufficiency, primary ovarian insufficiency (this is the most accurate term as some women may still conceive), premature menopause, primary ovarian failure, hypergonadotropic hypogonadism, as well as gonadal dysgenesis (obsolete), is the loss of function of the ovaries before age 40.(WiKi)

The researchers, led by Professor Osama Azmy (National Research Center, Cairo, Egypt) used embryonic rat stem cells to restore ovary function in the experimental rats.This is an important development which opens the prospect of treating women with POF in the future,According to World Congress of Fertility and Sterility.

There is still a long way to go before we can apply this to women,research claimed.

For many years,Studies show that acupuncture may adjust FSH and LH and normalize oestrogen and progesterone levels, thus affecting ovulation.Another study from Taiwan concluded that Chinese herbal medicine can restore ovarian function effectively and promptly and offers another option for treating infertility in patients with premature ovarian failure.Chinese method for treating POF should be to supplement the kidneys and fortify the spleen, course the liver and quicken the blood.
