A special issue of Endocrines (ISSN 2673-396X). This special issue belongs to the section "Female Reproductive System and Pregnancy Endocrinology".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 June 2021).
Interests: neuroendocrine/endocrine control of reproduction; hypothalamic dysfunctions; PCOS; obesity; hyperinsulinism; peri and postmenopausal disturbances
When dealing with abnormal menstrual occurrence or with inability to conceive, many issues can be taken in consideration. Stress, impaired metabolism, PCOS, ovarian failure, endocrine diseases, excess physical activity, or psychodynamic aspects can be effective in negatively modulating the reproductive axis, resulting in a defective reproductive ability.
This Special Issue aims to review the current knowledge and clinical experience of the many situations that have an impact on female reproductive function from adolescence to premenopause, from physiopathology to putative treatment options.
Prof. Dr. Alessandro Genazzani
