Valid for Submission
E28.8 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other ovarian dysfunction. The code E28.8 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code E28.8 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like cycling ovulatory disorder, diminished ovarian reserve, diminished ovarian reserve due to increased follicle-stimulating hormone and estradiol, diminished ovarian reserve due to poor follicle-stimulating hormone response, endocrine menstrual disturbance , hypergonadism, etc.
The code E28.8 is applicable to female patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-female patient.
Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

Inclusion TermsInclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
- Ovarian hyperfunction NOS
Type 1 ExcludesType 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.
- postprocedural ovarian failure E89.4

The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Cycling ovulatory disorder
- Diminished ovarian reserve
- Diminished ovarian reserve due to increased follicle-stimulating hormone and estradiol
- Diminished ovarian reserve due to poor follicle-stimulating hormone response
- Endocrine menstrual disturbance
- Hypergonadotropic amenorrhea
- Hypersecretion of ovarian progesterone
- Ovarian hyperfunction
- Ovarian hypersecretion
- Ovarian masculinization syndrome

Information for Patients
The ovaries are part of the female reproductive system. Women have two ovaries, one on each side of the uterus. Each ovary is about the size and shape of an almond.
The ovaries produce and store a woman's eggs. During ovulation, an ovary releases an egg. If that egg is fertilized by a sperm, a pregnancy can occur. Ovaries also make the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. When a woman goes through menopause, her ovaries stop making those hormones and releasing eggs.
Problems with the ovaries include
- Ovarian cancer
- Ovarian cysts and polycystic ovary syndrome
- Primary ovarian insufficiency
- Ovarian torsion, a twisting of the ovary
