How to plan for kids when early menopause runs in the family.
How early is too early? Advise to those with this condition or susceptible to this condition.
What is POF :In early menopause, the ovaries don't produce normal amounts of the hormone estrogen or release eggs regularly. Infertility is common. However, it's possible a woman with this condition could get pregnant with treatment.
While I have a few years before I'm ready for another kid and to be a mother of two this is the second time I've run into this concern of how much of a role POF will play a factor in my life. I would like to wait for another three years before we starting trying for another little one but the scare of not being able to has been in the back of my mind. It took a year to conceive my first child and in that time I doubt if I was ever going to get to be mother.
Keep trying- I know it can be discouraging when you think it will happen right away and it doesn't but with help from Hormonal Therapy you can do it.
The early the better - life doesn't always allow things to go as planned but if you really want a kid don't wait.
