In brief: Very unlikely
Rarely, people with failure of a gland will spontaneously recover function.
Otherwise you would hormonal treatment and an invitro fertilized egg implanted and continued hormonal treatment during the pregnancy.

Sometimes, in the early evolution of POF, the ovary can still be stimulated with HIGH dose FSH, which can lead to pregnancy. You want to be doing the optimal treatment method for pregnancy to ensue if either of these occur. That optimal treatment method is IVF because it performs 7 of the 9 steps required to get pregnant and has the highest chances of pregnancy.As long as your ovaries stimulate and eggs can be obtained (you only need one or two good quality embryos), you would have a 50-70% chance of pregnancy per IVF cycle.

In brief: Possibly
The exact cause of pof is unknown.
Most think that it is an autoimmune problem, whereby somehow the body is shutting down the ovary. However, pregnancies have occurred in pof patients from random spontaneous ovulation. The problem is that the ovary is not picking up the fsh so the levels are increased. Fertility medications work by "bombarding" the ovary with increased fsh.
