Glossary for Hypergonadotropic ovarian failure

  • Amenorrhea: Absence of menstrual periods due to many possible causes.
  • Andrade's syndrome: An inherited condition characterized by deposits of an abnormal protein called amyloid in various parts of the body including organs. The condition mainly involves neurological symptoms.
  • Blepharophimosis, Ptosis, Epicanthus Inversus Syndrome, type 1: A rare genetic disorder characterized by inner canthal folds, lateral displacement of inner canthi and drooping upper eyelid. The severity of symptoms is variable. There are two subtypes of the condition: Type 2 involves eye anomalies as well as female fertility problems whereas type 1 only involves the eye anomalies.
  • Congenital conditions: Any condition that you are born with such as birth defects or genetic diseases.
  • Congenital conditions -- physical defects: Congenital (birth) defects causing a physical structure defect (rather than metabolic).
  • Diabetes: Failing or reduced ability of the body to handle sugars.
  • Endocrine system conditions: Medical conditions affecting the endocrine systems, such as the related hormones or glands.
  • Female infertility: Infertility that affects the female
  • Female reproductive conditions: Medical conditions affecting the female reproductive system.
  • Fertility conditions: Medical conditions relating to fertility, including infertility.
  • Hot flushes: The occurance of the symptom of waves of a hot sensation over the body
  • Hypergonadotropic ovarian failure, familial or sporadic: A rare disorder where the ovaries fail to function prematurely. Ovarian failure can occur in the 20's or 30's. Normal ovarian failure occurs during menopause. Premature ovarian failure can be caused by a genetic mutation and can occur sporadically or in a familial pattern.
  • Menopause: The end of female menstruation and fertility.
  • Night sweats: Night sweats is the occurrence of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) during sleep. The sufferer may or may not also suffer from excessive perspiration while awake.
  • Oligomenorrhea: A medical term that refers to light or infrequent menstrual periods. The condition can be caused by a number of disorders including Graves disease, thyrotoxicosis or a pituitary tumor.
  • Osteosclerosis -- ichthyosis -- premature ovarian failure: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by increased bone density, scaly skin and premature menopause.
  • Osteosclerosis with ichthyosis and premature ovarian failure: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by increased bone density, scaly skin and premature menopause.
  • Ovary conditions: Any condition that affects a female ovary
  • Pelvic conditions: Any medical condition affecting the pelvic region.
  • Polyneuropathy -- mental retardation -- acromicria -- premature menopause: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by premature menopause, sensory impairment, mental retardation and small, delicate facial bones.
  • Premature Ovarian Failure 1: A condition where menopause occurs earlier than normal due to premature loss of function of the ovaries. Premature menopause refers to menopause occurring before the age of 40 years with the average age of menopause occurring about the age of 50 years. Type 1 is linked to a genetic anomaly on chromosome Xq26-q28.
  • Premature Ovarian Failure 2: A condition where menopause occurs earlier than normal due to premature loss of function of the ovaries. Premature menopause refers to menopause occurring before the age of 40 years with the average age of menopause occurring about the age of 50 years. Type 2 is linked to a genetic anomaly on chromosome Xq13.3-q21.1.
  • Premature Ovarian Failure 2A: A condition where menopause occurs earlier than normal due to premature loss of function of the ovaries. Premature menopause refers to menopause occurring before the age of 40 years with the average age of menopause occurring about the age of 50 years. Type 2A is linked to a defect in the DIAPH2 gene on chromosome Xq22.
  • Premature Ovarian Failure 2B: A condition where menopause occurs earlier than normal due to premature loss of function of the ovaries. Premature menopause refers to menopause occurring before the age of 40 years with the average age of menopause occurring about the age of 50 years. Type 2B is linked to a defect in the POF2B gene on chromosome Xq21.
  • Premature Ovarian Failure 3: A condition where menopause occurs earlier than normal due to premature loss of function of the ovaries. Premature menopause refers to menopause occurring before the age of 40 years with the average age of menopause occurring about the age of 50 years. Type 3 is linked to a genetic anomaly on chromosome 3q23.
  • Premature Ovarian Failure 4: A condition where menopause occurs earlier than normal due to premature loss of function of the ovaries. Premature menopause refers to menopause occurring before the age of 40 years with the average age of menopause occurring about the age of 50 years. Type 4 is linked to a genetic anomaly on chromosome Xp11.2.
  • Premature Ovarian Failure 5: A condition where menopause occurs earlier than normal due to premature loss of function of the ovaries. Premature menopause refers to menopause occurring before the age of 40 years with the average age of menopause occurring about the age of 50 years. Type 5 is linked to a genetic anomaly on chromosome 7q35.
  • Premature Ovarian Failure 6: A condition where menopause occurs earlier than normal due to premature loss of function of the ovaries. Premature menopause refers to menopause occurring before the age of 40 years with the average age of menopause occurring about the age of 50 years. Type 6 is linked to a genetic anomaly on chromosome 2p12.
  • Reproductive conditions: Medical conditions of the reproductive system in men or women.
  • Sexual Conditions: Any condition that affects sexual function
  • Type 2 diabetes: Most common diabetes in adults, usually progressing slowly, mostly treated without insulin at diagnosis.
  • Women-only conditions: Conditions affecting women (females), but not males.
  • Womens health conditions: Medical conditions related to women's health.
