Perimenopause??

Postby mumtotwo » Sat Aug 08, 2015 9:32 pm

I'm new to the site, and am nearing 36 and want to have one more baby. I have 2 children (10 and 3) and want one more to complete our family. I had no issues conceiving the first 2. #1 was a surprise and #2 i just decided that cycle that I wanted another baby and it happened right away. However, this time around we have been NTNP--but the past few cycles i've been using OPK/Preseed..and nothing yet. My cycles have always been 28/29 days except the last 7 months they have been all over the place ranging from 28-33 days which I know is still in "normal" range, but I just find it odd how it's changed. I keep reading the symptoms of peri-menopause and think maybe i'm falling into that stage of life as it can happen at 35ish. Anyone had an successes in the perimenopause stage?

Hi,

I can't say whether it's perimenopause, but my fertility doctor told me that it's pretty common for cycles to fluctuate as we get into mid-late 30s. Mine are still within the normal range too, and mostly are 28-29 days, but sometimes are 24 or 25, sometimes 31!

It's probably just going to take you a little longer to catch a good egg! A lot of people swear by the "Sperm Meets Egg Plan" you can google it to get the gist. We tried it and got pregnant 1x, but it was an early mc. I'd say give it the standard ~6mo then see a specialist just to get your testing done and make sure all is ok.

Also, someone just recommended the book "Making Babies: A 3 month program" to me...might be worth looking into if you are trying to get some good info/ideas on supplements/etc. Baby dust to you!
