As she has developed premature ovarian failure and she is young, she needs hormone replacement.
She may keep on taking progyluton but what I think that Oral Contraceptive Pills are a better option.
She may Continue to take OCPs for 2 years and then we might consider changing it.

The side effects of OCPs are headache, nausea, vomiting , bloating , weight gain etc
