Our expert says:
In the first instance it is important to distinguish between premature ovarian failure and premature menopause. In selected cases of premature ovarian failure there is still a possibility to harvest ones own eggs whereas in premature menopause this is not possible since there is no eggs left. Certain cases of premature ovarian failure, which is based on autoimmune dysfunction, can be put into remission with the use of cortizone treatment and IVF high stimulation coupled with in-vitro maturation processes. It is best to visit a fertility specialist who is particularly familiar with this type of problem. An easier alternative would be to look at oocyte donation as this will give you the quickest result.
