Chemotherapeutic agents administered for the treatment of malignancies can result in the incidence of premature ovarian failure (POF). Ovarian failure is reflected by elevated serum follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels that may reach menopausal levels, at which the chances of a pregnancy are considered extremely rare. We report a case of a 26-year-old female who experienced two successful pregnancies, despite her diagnosis with chemotherapy-induced POF. This case suggests that patients who suffer from POF secondary to chemotherapy might still retain enough ovarian function with good quality oocytes that could support a healthy pregnancy.
