hi - a little TMI

i am 41 - overweight - pcos - thyroid (taking thyroid medicine) - ttc for over 5 years - gave up - started to get healthy a couple of weeks ago (after i do this, i always get my period on my own, i have irregular periods) but the other day, i went to the bathroom and saw a very big spot and thought oh - i am getting my period - but that is all i saw of it, i havent seen anything since.

so i was thinking that it was either 1. i o'd or 2. implantaion

i have tried everything except IVF - and probably know more about getting pg then some doctors do. :)

so, do you think i should keep my hopes up and think that i o'd i can't imagine that its implatation because we bd 17 days before i spotted, and 16 days after i started my diet. or do you think this is menopause calling (my mom didn't go thru menopause until her early 50's so i am just assuming that is when i go thru it, i have heard that whenever mom's go thru menopause that is when daughters go thru it)

or am i just too old to think about get pg naturally - with all of the problems that i have.

thank you for listening

Hi bochica,

I don't think you're crazy and you're most likely not in menopause. I think you just have to wait and see.

Regardless of whether you are or aren't pregnant now, I think it's important that you take good care of yourself (take your thyroid meds, eat right and exercise) since you said doing that helps you get a regular period. Without that period, we can't really get pregnant so keep doing that!

I also don't think you're too old to have a baby. My friend got pregnant at almost 44 (naturally) and now has a beautiful 2 year old. I have had 3 IVFs and none of them worked. But I have a friend who got pregnant on her second IVF try. (We got pregnant several times on our own, but unfortunately I miscarried on all of them.)

I think you need to go in to your doctor's office and have some tests run to see where you stand. Blood tests will help determine what's going on with your body.

Good luck to you!
