Premature Menopause: Fertility
Women with Premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) who desire pregnancy should be referred to a specialist unit where advice, support and consideration of fertility treatment involving egg donation can be provided. This can be a long and sometimes expensive programme, depending on treatment availability, but all options should be considered.
On the other hand, following a diagnosis of POI, especially when no specific reason has been identified, the ovaries can suddenly start working again, an egg can be released and pregnancy is possible. Therefore women who do not desire pregnancy should be advised that contraception should be used.
