Chronic kidney failure will affect the function of endocrine glands that regulate various functions in the body. These disorders can occur due to disruption of production, secretion, or metabolism of various hormones due to kidney damage that occurs. Endocrine disorders, one of which will cause menstrual cycle disorders to fertility disorders in women. Menstrual disorders in premenopausal women with chronic kidney disorders are thought to occur due to increased production of the hormone prolactin which will then disrupt the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis responsible for menstrual cycle regulation. Increased levels of the hormone prolactin are commonly found (around 70% in all cases) in patients with kidney failure, especially in late stage kidney failure. Kidney transplantation is one of the therapies known from research that can be beneficial to normalize hormone levels in the body associated with fertility in patients with end-stage kidney failure. Carry out further consultation with the doctor for this complaint and for future treatment plans.
