Abstract

Premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) is defined as a cessation of ovarian function before the age of 40 years. It is associated with hypoestrogenism and loss of residual follicles, both of which lead to menstrual abnormalities, pregnancy failures, and decreased health-related quality of life. The prevalence of POI is estimated at 1% in the general population. The risk of premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) before the age of 40 years is 1 %. The aetiopathology of premature ovarian insufficiency in the majority of cases is unknown and is termed as spontaneous or idiopathic POI. This is a case with signs and symptoms of POI which was developed after the administration of GnRH agonist drugs as a part of treatment of endometriosis. In this single case study, a female of 33 years having complaints of absence of periods since 6 months treated with Ayurveda treatment with pre and post evaluation. The symptoms of secondary amenorrhoea, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and mood swings were relieved after Ayurveda medications and procedures.
