Is hope on the horizon for premature ovarian insufficiency?

Is hope on the horizon for premature ovarian insufficiency?
Few conditions in reproductive medicine have greater potential to destroy the hope and dreams of parenthood than premature ovarian failure or insufficiency. Patients often view this diagnosis as an insurmountable obstacle on their path to achieving pregnancy. Even when they are counseled regarding the potential for pregnancy, they report a hopeless loss of control. Previous authors have stressed the inaccuracy of the term ovarian “failure” describing it as medically misleading and even offensive and psychologically hurtful, with patients experiencing feelings akin to learning about the death of a family member when given this diagnosis.
