The place for general conversation about early menopause (EM) — full menopause before the age of 45 & premature ovarian failure (POF) — post-meno hormone levels and skipped periods before the age of 40, surgical menopause, etc.
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.
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.
For those of us who are exploring natural supplements and remedies (everything from herbs to vitamins to acupuncture) for our symptoms — in place of or in addition to HRT. 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.
A special spot for those of us who are pregnant, are hoping for pregnancy, or who already have children. So... all of you "meno mamas" or mama-wanna-bes (!) — here's a haven for you to talk about the unique issues you face in terms of achieving pregnancy, being pregnant or being a mom with EM or POF.
Here's the place for non-meno stuff — from the lighthearted to the more serious. It's the spot to chat about anything and everything NOT related to our hormones. (Yes, there IS a life out there beyond our hormones... right?! Isn't there?! PLEASE say yes!)
