Hi,

I have a Drs app Monday but that doesn’t stop me sitting here worrying. Turned 40 a couple of months ago and since then my very regular cycle has gone from 28 days to 29, 18, 22, and currently on day 30 and still waiting. We started trying this month. I tested and got some faint lines so I think I ovulated but cm isn’t like what it was years ago (sorry for the TMI). I know it’s only month trying but it’s more the fear that menopause is on its way and that we have missed the boat. I have researched clomid and other options that might be available but was wondering if anyone had any advice

I should add I did do a pregnancy test this morning which came up negative. There appears to be at this stage, no sign what so ever of my period

I think it's too early to worry yet if you've only been trying a month.
BUT you can ask for hormone tests and follicle tracking to make sure you're ovulating and your lining is thick enough to sustain a pregnancy.

Ok this may not be what you want to hear. And likely it is not this so please take with a grain of salt.

But POF usually begins with very short cycles and then no bleeding. Essentially it is early menopause.  

But it does take years to fully complete so doesn't mean no children necessarily.  It might just be much harder to achieve.

I had my last son during this time.

See a fertility specialist quick. Don't let them tell you to wait few more cycles.

Clomid will only work if you have lots of eggs that cant easily be relseased. POF is a completely different problem.

I was worried it was something like this. You were still able to conceive? Are there things I can do to help the situation?

Get a referral to a FS (not a gyno/OB). He or she will run tests to see exactly what's going on. That said, it's early days and sometimes odd cycles just happen.

I am absolutely happy to give advice but perhaps get a diagosis first. I'd hate for you to go through emotional turmoil if it is nothing major. POF is a very tricky and complicared issue that is very specific in terms of how your hormones are behaving.

Best of luck. Please message me if needed.
