General EM/POF Discussions

The place for general conversation about early menopause (EM) -- FULL meno BEFORE AGE 45, premature ovarian failure (POF) -- post-meno hormone levels and skipped periods BEFORE AGE 40, surgical menopause, etc. If you've been diagnosed before the age of 45, you can share concerns, questions and experiences here with others like you! Since we have other forums please keep posts here specific to EM or POF.

Note: because of the extremely high volume of posts to the EM.com message board, posts to all forums including this one are deleted after a certain time.

Infertility Support

Infertility is one of the most painful aspects of coping with EM or POF. You might be thinking about (or currently pursuing) DE/IVF, hoping for spontaneous pregnancy, or simply trying to adjust... In all cases, this forum is designed for us to share our concerns, experiences, questions and support about infertility and infertility treatments -- as well as dealing with the emotional side of things.

Primary POF/Younger POFers

A special place for "primary" women (those who never had periods and have been diagnosed with primary amenorrhea or POF) and for those of us who are dealing with this in our teens or 20s. As always, you're welcome (no, encouraged!!) to post on the other boards, but this is your specific forum to chat with other women who are in the exact same situation.

While you're of course encouraged to post on the General Discussions board, this is a special place to share notes, comments and suggestions with others who are using (or thinking of using) natural remedies.
