27-year-old Lily (pseudonym) was found to have an ovarian teratoma about 6 cm in size when she was examined in the hospital at the beginning of the year. At that time, the doctor advised her to have an operation as soon as possible.

But for some concerns, Lily has been procrastinating. And just see the beauty salon near the company for publicity, saidEssential oil massage can maintain ovaries and help reduce cysts.So Lily decided to try.

Until June, Lily had severe abdominal pain, accompanied by nausea and vomiting, and her family quickly sent her to the emergency department. When looking for the source of pain, the doctor found a slightly larger mass in Lily’s right accessory area. Considering the torsion of ovarian cyst, he quickly arranged surgery for Wenwen.

On further examination, Lily’s ovarian cyst is indeedA twist of 720 degrees occurred.Fortunately, it was found in time and the operation was a success.

The doctor told Lily that she had a teratoma herself.While massage increases local abdominal pressure.Local posture changes, without the risk of cyst torsion and rupture.

Ovary also has a life span. According to normal physiological laws, ovarian function is at its peak at the age of 25-35. When women are over 35, ovarian function will gradually decline.

Among them, menopause is a sign of premature ovarian failure in women. According to statistics, Chinese womenThe average age of natural menopause is about 49 years old.However, due to living habits, mental stress and other reasons, most modern women have an early menopause trend.

Ovary has two major functions,One is reproductive function.It can store eggs and ovulate to prepare for life;The second is responsible for regulating endocrine function.Let women have Q-elastic skin and a concave-convex figure.

However, in recent years, studies have found that premature ovarian failure in women is more and more common. Premature ovarian failure is also called early-onset ovarian insufficiency. Before the age of 40, due to ovarian function decline,Persistent amenorrhea occursA group of diseases with high gonadotropin and low estrogen status.

At present, there are three recognized diagnostic criteria for premature ovarian failure: ① age < 40 years old; ② Amenorrhea time ≥6 months; ③ twice (more than one month apart) blood FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) > 40mIU/ml.

Once premature ovarian failure occurs, there is no room for recovery.Only through early detection and early control can the recession be delayed..

For women, premature ovarian failure not only means getting old in advance and lacking hormones for a long time, but also mayCauses osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease and increases the risk of cancer.Wait a minute.

Premature ovarian failure will bring health threats to women. What causes will affect ovarian function?

One is pathological factors.About 10% of premature ovarian failure is related to chromosome abnormality, and some of it is caused by autoimmune disorder, as well as viral infection, such as HIV, cytomegalovirus, tuberculosis, malaria, etc., which will all affect the ovaries.

The second is iatrogenic factors.In the process of ovarian surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the whole body organs are more or less damaged.

The third is bad living habits., such as frequencyNumerous abortions, often staying up late, smoking, drinking, and losing weight unscientific.Etc., will have a negative impact on the ovaries.

What are the manifestations of premature ovarian failure?

  • Menstrual disorder;
  • Symptoms of estrogen deficiency, such as hot flashes, night sweats, upset, decreased libido, vaginal dryness, etc.
  • Emotional instability, such as emotional excitement, depression, irritability, insomnia, etc.;
  • Fertility declines.

Many people question whether ovarian decline has an impact on sexual life.

In fact, the maintenance of ovarian function mainly depends onHypothalamus-pituitary-ovary axisAt present, there is no evidence that the decrease of sexual life is related to follicles or ovulation.

In order to prevent premature ovarian failure, many people may go back to some beauty salons or massage shops to do "ovarian maintenance". Is it really effective?

You know, the ovary is located in the bilateral iliac fossa area below the navel, in the deep position of the lower abdomen.From the outside of the stomach, it is simply impossible to touch..

Most of the essential oil can only act on the skin surface, even if it penetrates into the skin and enters the blood circulation of the whole body, it has little effect on the ovaries. At present, there is no diagnosis and treatment guide to recommend the use of massage to improve ovarian function.

In addition, it is not recommended to take drugs orally to prevent it. If these drugs really work, they are probably added with hormones.If hormone is used under the condition of unknown composition and dosage, it will cause disorders such as breast and uterus.It is easy to induce the disease, even worsen the disease, and increase the risk of tumors such as uterus and ovary.

If you are diagnosed with premature ovarian failure, don’t be too anxious. In a short time, hormone supplementation can alleviate the symptoms of low estrogen. If there is a need for fertility, you can discuss with your doctor the plan to promote ovulation and combine assisted reproductive technology to complete pregnancy.

We should also take relevant precautions in daily life, such as quitting smoking and drinking, paying attention to a balanced diet, releasing stress, maintaining an optimistic mood and keeping internal hormones in a steady state. When you notice signs of premature ovarian failure, don’t delay because of face. Early detection and early treatment are the best ways to delay the decline.
