    Premature Ovarian Failure, Early Menopause

    Hi all,

    I wasn't sure where to post this, but after meeting with three specialists yesterday it was confirmed that I have premature ovarian failure. (Obviously also going through menopause). I will likely never have another period (next month will be a full year without them) and I will never have children with my own DNA.

    Some facts:
    -I am a single, unmarried, healthy, 23 year old with no children
    -I have had countless blood draws and 2 ultrasounds
    -My ovaries are 1cm big (should be around 4cm)
    -My FSH was at 78 (should be around or under 10)
    -I do not have fragile x syndrome
    -Next tests ordered are for autoimmune (adrenal & pituitary) and keryotype

    Has anybody gone through this? I am devastated and feel really alone in this. My friends are currently pregnant, and I heard that this happens to maybe 1% of females under 40.
