Am Fam Physician. 2014 Jul 1;90(1):8.

Incorrect wording. The article “Amenorrhea: An Approach to Diagnosis and Management” (June 1, 2013, p. 781) contained an error in the first sentence of the second paragraph of the section titled “Primary Ovarian Insufficiency” (p. 784). It incorrectly recommended that patients with primary ovarian insufficiency be counseled about possible infertility because of the potential for remission. The sentence should have read, “Patients with primary ovarian insufficiency should be counseled about possible fertility, because up to 10% of such patients may achieve temporary and unpredictable remission.” The online version of this article has been corrected.
