Our expert says:
It is not unusual for some patients to undergo abrupt or fairly rapid ovarian failure. It is important to distinguish between premature ovarian failure and premature menopause. In the case of the premature menopause the implication is that the ovaries have no eggs left and therefore fertility is highly unlikely. In the case of premature ovarian failure the problem may be a transient one and there maybe phases in which conception and treatment is possible. The main problem with premature ovarian failure is a receptor problem rather than an egg depletion problem. I would recommend that you seek advice from your fertility specialist as to what type of ovarian failure you are dealing with so as to plan your future accordingly.
