In brief: Donor egg works best
With confirmed poi - primary ovarian insufficiency - you need tests to make sure it's safe to get pregnant: turner syndrome or adrenal gland issues.
Women with poi have a 5-10% chance of getting pregnant naturally. Best options for fertility are egg donation (75-80% + success), embryo donation (40%) or adoption. Fertility treatments with your own eggs don't work well; research studies continue.
