Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

POF (or Premature Ovarian Failure) is when ovaries do not ovulate frequently and do not produce enough estrogen - and if often leads to infertility.

If a women still gets her period (even if they are not regular) they can get pregnant although obviously being on the Pill stops this. If they are not getting periods due to lack of ovulation, they cannot get pregnant.

However, IVF treatments can be done in order to try for pregnancy. If you are looking to become pregnant, talk to your OB/GYN about your options.

I hope this helps!
