In this paper, a case of premature ovarian failure(POF), accompanied with amenorrhea for 2 years was reported. After 2 months of acupuncture, the patient's menstruation was resumed, and after 11 months of treatment, the patient had a spontaneous pregnancy. It is suggested that acupuncture should be used for the patient with POF as early as possible, and if necessary, hormone replacement therapy is still needed, and it is still expected to obtain spontaneous pregnancy before completely exhausted of ovarian function.
