Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) affecting 1% of women leads to infertility due to a lack of follicle growth and ovulation, and oocyte donation is the only treatment option. Studies have reported that ovarian cryopreservation, fragmentation, and in vitro activation with drug treatment followed by autotransplantation can result in the successful pregnancy outcomes. Herein, we report a case of POI, in which we performed the procedure of in vitro ovarian activation (OA) and autotransplantation without using drugs to see if it would induce the follicular growth. This is the first case report from India, and it shows that the procedure of OA works and can be tried as an experimental procedure for women with POI who are very keen on trying pregnancy using their own oocytes.
