I am now 35, but when I was 32 my cycles started to become irregular, and I had several surgeries for fibroid tumors, scar tissue, and ovarian cysts. My FSH level went from 5 to 35 :( and my doctor said I was not in menopause but in POF. Although I had had 3 children naturally in my 20's, at the age of 33, I was told that my ovaries were not going to work and not only did I need IVF (which we expected because of my tubes) but donor egg? Sheesh!
I almost fell off of my chair when my doctor told me my FSH level was 35! thats the level of a woman in menopause! and I was 33 at the time. But before my joint inflammation etc. However, I have never been told it is because of an autoimmune issue.
