Question Short lived dream???

My freshman year in high school I was told that I would never have kids. 14 years and 3 miscarriages later I just about gave up on ever having any. Last year when my son was I born I was elated & so happy that the dr's were wrong for once. My husband has said on a few occassions that he would like to have another, and so would I. But I haven't had a period AT ALL since I had my son. I have an IUD, but I have been told that I should have some kind of a period. Every so often, there is no rhyme or reason to the schedule, I crave chocolate & fatty foods like I did with my periods, and I get really tired. I've started having hot flashes & night sweats - I had them really bad when I was pregnant. I'm really tired & my iron is severely low. I am scared to go to the dr because I'm afraid she'll tell me that I'm perimenopausal already. Is it possible? Or is it just that my hormones are just as out of whack now as they were in high school?

Re: Short lived dream???

Do you have an actual medical diagnosis as to why you would be unlikely to conceive children?

Your symptoms sound like you're annovulatory or have PCOS. In both cases, it is rare to get a period.

I honestly think that if having more children is something you greatly want, your best option would be to visit a reproduction specialist and get an exact diagnosis for why you are not currently getting a period. It sounds like you're only in your late 20's or early 30's which means that with proper treatment you could potentially have another child. Although a small percentage of women do go through early menopause, you did successfully have a child only a year ago. It sounds more like a hormonal inbalance than perimenopause to me. Even someone who has PCOS or is annovulatory can carry a child to term through IVIS or IVF as long as their progesterone levels are supported.

See a doctor....and get properly diagnosed. It will give you far more answers and enable you to get a game plan in place.
