Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (POI): NICHD Research Information

The NICHD is trying to learn more about POI through research into its causes and mechanisms, its symptoms, its associated health conditions, and its treatments. Hormones, genes, the immune system, and other factors may all play a role in POI. The NICHD hopes that its research will lead to advances in treatment for POI and for its related conditions that can mitigate its impact on women’s lives.
