Premature Ovary Failure Series

Premature ovary failure (POF) refers to a loss of normal function of your ovaries before age 40.  If a woman's ovaries fail, they don't produce normal amounts of the hormone estrogen or release eggs regularly.


Women diagnosed with premature ovary failure (POF) do not produce eggs on a regular basis, which is why they have irregular periods.

Women could produce eggs once every two weeks or it could be once every six months.  The chance that you will get pregnant will be based on two things:  if we can still catch the egg and if you are still producing eggs.  If you are not currently producing egg, then it would be unsuccessful.
