The prevalence of declining ovarian function among women in contemporary 5G life is increasing year by year, and with the gradual decline of ovarian function, more and more women are facing the threat of premature ovarian failure, which is extremely harmful, not only leading to the decline of female reproductive and endocrine function, but also leading to or aggravating multi-organ and multi-system dysfunction. The idea of "Prevention of disease" originates from the The Inner Canon of Huangdi, which is a representative academic thought of Chinese medicine, the essence of which lies in "preventing the untreated disease before it occurs, preventing changes after the disease has occurred, and preventing recurrence after the disease has occurred". Under the guidance of the idea of "treating the disease before it occurs", early identification and intervention of ovarian function decline is of great importance.
