Attitudes and beliefs about Premature Ovarian Failure (Monash study)

Premature ovarian failure (POF) affects 1% of women aged less than 40 years. Concern has been expressed by women and clinicians regarding the name "premature ovarian failure" and other terms to describe this condition are appearing in the medical literature and media. In addition, there is a lack of clarity over the diagnostic criteria, causes, mechanisms, natural history and optimal therapies for POF, contributing to confusion/frustration for women, health professionals, clinicians and researchers.

In this context, we are conducting a 5 minute survey on the attitudes and beliefs that women, health professionals and researchers hold regarding "Premature ovarian failure" and would greatly appreciate your contribution.

This survey is anonymous and you are under no obligation to answer any question that you are not comfortable with.

The Participant Information Sheet and survey can be accessed at the following link:

This project has received ethics approval from Southern Health.
