menopause or pregnant?

Terri V. - November 21

I've been trying for 5 yrs to have our 2nd child. I have done IVF twice. Now I am 42, and have missed my period for the first time. The home pregnancy tests are negative. Could I have missed due to early menopause, or could I reall be pregnant?

go in and get your fsh level on cd 3 checked and see what your number is.If its higher than 15 your nearing the end of your eggs, if its over 20 you'll have to use a donors egg and if its even higher it means your probably near menopause.

Hi Terri V. If you're normally regular it is very possible that you're PG but it's a little early for a + result, or you're not yet producing enough Hcg, etc. I'd suggest waiting a couple more days & then getting a beta test at your drs, that tends to be a bit more reliable than HPTs. How late are you now? If the Beta test is neg., then like Liz said, it's probably a good idea to get the FSH test on CD3 of your next cycle. Good luck, I hope you get good news soon. Please keep us posted.
