Unlikely: Presuming the 109 is fsh, it likely indicates ovarian failure. On rare occasions, there can be some eggs and ovulation can occur, but this would be highly unusual. It is important to see a specialist to make sure she is monitored for the general health, genetic and reproductive issues associated with ovarian failure.
