BackgroundBecause only 25% of cases of premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) have a known etiology, the aim of this review was to summarize the associations and mechanisms of the impact of the environment on this pathology.Main body of the abstractEligible studies were selected from an electronic literature search from the PUBMED database from January 2000 to February 2016 and associated references in published studies. Search terms included ovary, follicle, oocyte, endocrine disruptor… 
From Environmental to Possible Occupational Exposure to Risk Factors: What Role Do They Play in the Etiology of Endometriosis?
TLDR
A systematic review of the literature was conducted to clarify whether possible occupational risk factors may correlate with the onset of endometriosis, and the hypothesis of a correlation with perfluoroalkyls exposure is not currently supported by data.
The Link between Environmental Toxicant Exposure and Endometriosis Re-Examined
TLDR
It is concluded that despite a growing literature, evidence for an association between exposure to environmental toxicants and risk of endometriosis remains weak.
Selected persistent organic pollutants associated with the risk of primary ovarian insufficiency in women.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that exposure to PCBs and DDT could be the potential risk factors for POI in women in Chinese female population for the first time.
Exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and risk for premature ovarian failure and reproductive hormones imbalance.
TLDR
This is the first study to report an association between internal exposure levels of PAHs and the increased risk of POF in women, and Benzo(a)pyrene (BaP), as the most carcinogenic PAH congener, was observed to be significantly positively associated with the risk ofPOF.
A critical analysis of the impact of endocrine disruptors as a possible etiology of primary ovarian insufficiency
TLDR
A critical synthesis of the knowledge of the chemical agents likely to affect follicular stock in humans and / or animals, by direct toxicity to follicles, or by increasing their recruitments is carried out.
Exposure to non-persistent chemicals in consumer products and fecundability: a systematic review
TLDR
A systematic review of English language literature found little to no indication that bisphenol A, triclocarban or triclosan exposure was associated with TTP, and advocated for common-sense lifestyle changes in which both females and males seeking to conceive minimize their exposure to non-persistent chemicals.
Pregnancy following diagnosis of premature ovarian insufficiency: a systematic review.
TLDR
No treatment has thus far shown its superiority in improving fertility in women with POI, however, recent advances in options such as in-vitro maturation and stem-cell therapy are likely to be the future of treatment and may generate new hope for these patients.
Impact of some environmental chemical carcinogens on the incidence of hormone-dependent tumors and possible mechanisms of its realization (literary review)
TLDR
The accumulated experimental and epidemiological data allow us to conclude that the oncological danger of these carcinogens lies in the combination of genotoxic and hormone-mimetic properties, which are associated with changes and disorders at different levels of the structural and functional organization of the organism, including the endocrine system, which can lead to the development of tumors.
Urinary cadmium concentrations and risk of primary ovarian insufficiency in women: a case–control study
TLDR
The results of binary logistic regression models showed that the concentrations of cadmium were positively significantly correlated with the odds ratio (ORs) of POI before the adjustment of confounders, which is the first reported positive association of Cadmium exposure with the risk ofPOI in women.
Premature ovarian insufficiency – aetiopathology, epidemiology, and diagnostic evaluation
TLDR
In some patients with POI, genetic abnormalities, metabolic disorders, autoimmunity, iatrogenic procedures, infections, or environmental factors have been established as underlying causes of the syndrome.

Occupational exposures to chemicals as a possible etiology in premature ovarian failure: a critical analysis of the literature.
TLDR
This review aims to carry out a critical synthesis of knowledge of the chemical agents likely to affect follicular stock in humans and/or animals, by direct toxicity to follicles, or by increasing their recruitments.
Ovarian toxicity: from environmental exposure to chemotherapy.
TLDR
The negative effects exerted on mammalian ovary by some widely diffused environmental chemicals, as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and dithiocarbamate mancozeb, and by 1-3 butadiene and 4-vinylcycloexene, two occupational chemicals known to be capable of inducing ovarian cancer and infertility are reported.
Environmental contaminants, fertility, and multioocytic follicles: a lesson from wildlife?
TLDR
Perturbations of vertebrate oogenesis and folliculogenesis in humans, caused by environmental contaminant exposure, could lead to altered fertility, as has been reported in wildlife and laboratory rodent models.
Bisphenol a and the female reproductive tract: an overview of recent laboratory evidence and epidemiological studies
TLDR
Experimental studies suggest that BPA’s mechanism of action is related to life stage and that its effect on the female reproductive system may involve agonism with estrogen nuclear receptors as well as other mechanisms (steroid biosynthesis inhibition).
Genetics of primary ovarian insufficiency: new developments and opportunities
TLDR
Given the slow progress in candidate-gene analysis and relatively small sample sizes available for GWAS, family-based whole exome and whole genome sequencing appear to be the most promising approaches for detecting potential genes responsible for POI.
An update on primary ovarian insufficiency
TLDR
Primary ovarian insufficiency occurs in about 1% of female population under the age of 40, leading to reproductive problems, an earlier encounter with menopausal symptoms, and complicated diseases, and strategies to POI include hormone replacement and infertility treatment.
Bisphenol A, oocyte maturation, implantation, and IVF outcome: review of animal and human data.
TLDR
Clinical evidence indicate possible adverse effects of BPA exposure on IVF outcomes, and larger studies are required to further elucidate the effects of bisphenol A exposure on female fertility.
The impact of endocrine disruptors on oocyte competence.
TLDR
The present review presents and discusses the available evidence that environmental chemicals are causing ovarian toxicity in various species, with particular attention to farm animals, and focuses attention on the superfamily of organochlorine chemicals, persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
Premature ovarian failure: immunological aspects and therapeutic strategies.
TLDR
Between 10 and 30% of women with POF have a concurrent autoimmune disease, the most commonly reported being hypothyroidism, and the most clinically important hypoadrenalism, as well as association with myasthenia gravis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease.
Maternal exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons diminishes murine ovarian reserve via induction of Harakiri.
TLDR
The data indicate that maternal exposure to PAHs prior to pregnancy and/or during lactation compromises ovarian reserve of female offspring, raising the concern about the transgenerational impact of maternal smoking on ovarian function in the human.
