Female fertility

Is a naturally reduced antimüllerian hormone at a young age linked to an increased risk of cancer development?


Despite intense research, the pathophysiological mechanismsof premature ovarian aging, leading to reduced ovarian reserve and possibly infertility in young women, are still poorly understood. Well-established risks for reduced ovarian reserve are aggressive ovarian surgery, endometriosis and cytotoxic therapy; however, gene mutations such as the Fragile X syndrome can also cause premature follicle loss and a reduced ovarian reserve.
