    Anyone here with POF?

    I'm just curious if there is anyone here with POF who has been blessed with one child and TTC #2 (or 3?) I've been blessed with one naturally in 2011, and am dying to have another. Our DD is just turning 2 in a few weeks. I've tried acupuncture, herbs, supplements, dietary changes, you name it from Jan-June this year. I am now taking a 'break' from it all allowing myself to drink a little, enjoy the occasional coffee, etc. We are now at a crossroad wondering do we have false hope that lightning can strike twice? (I haven't had a period since April, FSH has been 26-52, AMH <.08.) We are starting to talk about DE and adoption (I'm leaning toward DE), but I keep having second thoughts that I'm giving up too soon, etc. This journey is so tough! I'm extremely grateful for my beautiful little girl, but want another.... In the meantime, I started HRT 2 weeks ago in hopes of bringing on a period and to help manage hot flashes. xo-Lauren

    Omg you answered!!! I didn't think anyone would! I've been on here looking for current POF posts and this was the most recent. I haven't had my cycle since October. 😭 I'm seeing an acupuncturist and she's giving me herbs too. I'm sooooooo frustrated....

    That is so annoying! Are you getting lots o symptoms or are you on hrt to mitigate? I was getting terrible sleep, hot flashes etc so reluctantly restarted. I was reading about a dr called dr check who has had success in having high fsh pregnancies after working with hrt.... are you doing diet stuff too? It's a pain but easier in summer

    Well symptoms wise I feel cramps every now and then. I was crying at a TV show the other day and I always love sweets...that I now can't have. 😐😞 No hrt for me. Trying to do things naturally. The herbs do have minor side effects tho. The last set I was on had me ALWAYS hungry! The new ones I'm on now has decreased my appetite. Smh. This is the 4th set that I've tried to get my cycle started. I'm getting scared...

    I was pregnant last July but it was a CP. This mother's day was kinda hard because of it.

    No sweets or sugar or chocolate 😢 I'm trying reaaalllll hard with the sweets. I've given up alcohol easily but the sweets and chocolate have been rough. It'll be easier in the summer for me because I'm a teacher. Come on summer! Lol

    How are things for you??

    Hi tulip,

    How are you? I'm sorry to disappear, have so much going on which is playing havoc with ability to follow the regime properly... have been off for a month at least due to
    Some dramas but trying to get back on it. Ow. I guess it's no surprise then that no signs of period or anything else. How is it going for you? Are you having cycles or any good fertility signs? Xx
