Hi girls, joining you from Germany..
already posted in the other forum - but with 42, I'm better off in this one I guess.
My situation: I had regular menses till last December, with ovulation. Then suddenly my period first came really late after 47 days, so I checked my hormones for the first time. Then my cycles just stopped (last one started Dec. 23rd). FSH dashed up from 9 in Dec to 18 in January to 40 this week!!
The doctor said he thinks I went through my complete menopause within those two months and it looks like it is all over. There are really no means of reactivating my ovaries, which have obviously stopped working altogether.
How can this be??? So fast??
He did see one follie on each side, does that mean there is still hope?
Does anyone know what happens to follies when the cycles are too long? Do they die? Are they harmed if they don't grow within the time they are supposed to?
We were just about to do an ICSI after months of trying 'the natural way' with ovulation tests, since my AMH was low in December as well, which was shocking enough. But it looks like we won't even get the chance and everything is over just like this?!
Has anyone else experienced such a fast increase in FSH? Could there be other reasons? Until Dec, I had my period every 25 days
AND, is ist really necessary/sufficient to lower FSH, shoudn't the REASON why FSH is increased be addressed? Since FSH increase is the body's response to ovaries not working?
Before all this happened, I had one bladder infection after the other - but with no bacteria detected and no inflammation. Then my ovaries started hurting (and still do). I went to 3 different pregnancy clinics, noone cared about the pain and the other symptoms.
Can't this all have something to do with the increased FSH and my missing period??
Thanks for any help!
