Is it possible to be born without ovaries? What this condition is called?
Hello, I recently found out my daughter is born without ovaries. She is 14 years old and she was not getting her periods so we decided to visit a doctor. Is there such a condition? How common is it? What this condition is called? Please suggest what can I do now? We are still trying to cope with the news. I would love to get to know more about how and how you managed to get along with the news.
@gaby Hello, Sorry to hear that. Such a condition called Uterine agenesis is a congenital disorder, meaning it is present at birth. It occurs when the baby's reproductive system fails to develop fully in the womb. Other reproductive organs may also be missing or smaller than usual. The cause of this abnormal development is not yet known. There is no one cause of fallopian tubes and ovarian anomalies. Some may be hereditary, others may be attributed to a random gene mutation or developmental defect. If she has no ovaries, treatment will depend on the individual case. Ovotestis can be surgically removed, and the patient may need treatment with hormonal therapy. You can talk to your doctor about possible solutions. Thanks!
