Hi, again.. [linked image]
so.. menopause is not until you haven't had your period for a year. We know that, but doctors seem to 'know' that that was it as soon as they see high FSH. Right?
While you're waiting for your period, those words seem to be the most upsetting.. 'this was it, accept it, I'm sorry, I know it's bitter, bla bla.'. I even heard that that ovulation in November (a normal ovulation, after - up until then - normal cycles, every month) was 'probably my last egg'. One said (when I asked during US if they could see if I ovulated yet in December) 'why do you think an ovulation took place if you don't have any eggs left'). Aren't Germans just the most charming of all.. [linked image]
How is it with your cycles?? The doctors have been right so far, no period at all. Which is what makes me so hopeless. But then again, it's only been 60 something days, right? So with everyone actually DOING Icis, IUIs and all.. I always thought most of you DO have cycles of at least some regularity? So I felt like I am one of the worst 'cases' around. And, of course, I will never get my period again without taking hormones, because that's what the doctor said. And that would only be an artificially triggered period. Or am I just feeling horribly sorry for myself?
How many of you are there with a few months without a cycle and then - magically - a cycle or cycles..? Or maybe just very long cycles?
Just to get a perspective.
Thanks, Tine
