I heard from my doctor today and it was very bad news. My Day 3 FSH was 33 which puts me in the menopausal range. I'm still in shock. For some reason i wasn't expecting that. . I'm going to work on coming to terms with the fact that I probably won't have another child. I hate to be such a downer......you ladies have been such a help to me. I wish I had better news.I'm hoping and praying that all of you get the BFPs you so deserve. I will no longer temp and obsess but will definitely peek in here frequently to see he everyone is doing.

All my best,

Oh Ayo, I'm so sorry to hear that. :( Maybe it's the eternal optimist in me but some quick research I did says that FSH levels fluctuate from cycle to cycle. I guess I am clinging to the possibiity. Did the Dr. suggest checking levels again next month? Either way I can completely understand dropping all of this stuff. It isn't like it is any fun to obsess on all the little details. Again I am so sorry. Would retail therapy help??? ;)

I enjoy your input on these boards so please lurk and post.

Not fun news.....BUT you haven't gone thru menopause yet, so you could still try until then, can't u? There are always possibilities.

Ayo, I was hoping for better news for you. I'm so sorry. I do hope you don't give up trying altogether though. I agree with Michele, those numbers do fluctuate from cycle to cycle so please don't lose all hope.

If you are still getting your period you still can get pregnant, just gotta catch the right egg. Levels rise and fall. Hugs to you.
