Dear Zan

Unfortunately the distinction has to be made between premature ovarian failure and premature menopause. In the case of premature menopause there are no eggs remaining and therefore no amount of stimulation or treatment would result in ovulation or pregnancy. However in the case of premature ovarian failure occasionally one can get spontaneous reversal and recovery for a short period during which ovulation can occur and hence conception is possible. However to distinguish on between the two it is sometimes necessary to do an ovarian biopsy or at least a laparoscopy.
