  • Premature Ovarian Failure, known as POF

    I am 1 years old and I have been going through many problems with m hormone levels and other things relating to this over the past year and a half. I went to the doctor as I said, around a year and a half ago and I was told I had went through menopause at the early age of thirteen. I've been on medications to get my hormone levels up and to get my ovaries working once again for quite a while now, otherwise known as HRT, or Hormone Replacement Therapy. My ovaries are now working and I am currently able to have a menstrual cycle, and was told that when I have sexual intercorse that I still need to be on birth control and use protection, so does this mean that there is a small chance of me being able to reproduce naturally? For the many people who may not know what premature ovarian failure is, I plan on posting a threat with symptoms and such to maybe let you know if you may be in the same position as well.

  • Hmm... are your ovaries functioning at this point? You can bleed and have a period, but not ovulate. The ovulation is the part that is necessary to get pregnant. There are tests that you can take to find out if you are ovulating or not.
