REFLECTIONS
Despite intense research, the pathophysiological mechanisms of 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.
Hence, in addition to the fact that a reduced ovarian function causing infertility already imposes a heavy psychological burden on the affected patients, data point toward a possible link between gene mutations, impaired DNA repair mechanism, and also an increased risk for the development of cancer. The possible impact of infertility on long-term health and life expectancy is demonstrated by a recently published paper, which describes a 10% increased risk of death in infertile women, with a 47% increased risk of cancer death
