Yes, but it was undiagnosed when I was youngFebruary 25 2012 at 9:19 PM

Eventually if you are undiagnosed like me and keep trying to conceive long enough, you will fall into the "eggs timed out" category of infertiles, and then the doctors breathe a huge sigh of relieve because now they have something to blame and don't have to do their job - which would be to look for the real cause.
I had miscarriages in my late twenties and early thirties and my FSH was consistently a 4 up until I was in my forties. The doctors just shrugged. Divorced, remarried, and started trying again. Refused to give up on my own eggs because, hey, there was no diagnosis of a problem with my ovaries. Round about age 45, with a heavy and defeated heart and now a high FSH, I moved onto donor egg, and that didn't work either. Finally got an additional diagnosis at age 47 of atypical Asherman's. Apparently my doctors didn't know what they were looking at and it took a specialist to see it. Needed a GS then. She had our twins when I was 48.
There are a lot of older moms here but just realize that many of us did not get started late in life - we've been trying for years and years and just didn't have success until we were much older. I would say I started trying to conceive at age 27 so you can see, it took 20 years.
I know how awful it feels to have your body fail you. Losing your genetics requires a grieving process. When you are ready, you will focus on what your body CAN do, such as carry a baby and give birth. I still feel very diminished as a female, but I'm trying to focus on being a good mother, because again, that's what I "can" work on.
Good luck. You've come to the right place.
