I had a hysterectomy after my 4th child 3rd pregnancy. I was only 20 yrs old then. Didn't take any thing until I was 45 yrs old. I'm not taking anything now because I heard the medicine I was taking can cause breast cancer. Ida

God bless, everyone can do it. Just stick with it

Praise God, I'm 5 years into menopause now and dh is too sick to have to worry anymore anyway...

My son who is about to have his third child took care of business a few months ago. Even before they knew that a little girl was being added to their 2 boys... they would either be getting their girl or be happy with "my 3 sons" it was hard on him for a few days trying to explain to a 2yo and a 3 yo why they had to be so gentle near daddy. I am proud of his responsibility!

love and peace, Ann

Did you ever have a test to make sure you were not pregnant before you started taking the pill?

At 52 I cannot imagine raising another one! (my mom was a change baby!) I did not get snipped as I did want another one but we do protect ourselves so I am not too worried (as I wring my hands!) It seems menopause is years away, I still have periods regularly, just every other month instead of every month.

Babbo,
Well, if you look at my quote below my signature, you'll understand why I hope she gets knocked up. LOL

Busygirl,
The words "my husband at the time" that says it all.

When I was pregnant with my 4th child at the age of 30, I was 6 months along, my DH got snipped. Then I insisted that I get my tubes tied right after she was born.
My doctor couldn't understand why I wanted to do this, but my theory was there were too many people out there where one of the couple had had a procedure done & needless to say things still happened.
Being that our doctor was family doctor, I just said, well, if you're so sure nothing will ever happen... if it does we'll be looking you up to pay for all expenses & college fees. He just started laughing & scheduled my surgery for the following morning.

When I had my Snip & Tuck, they demanded the Husband sign the form when I arrived at the hospital. I raised hell . . I threatened to SUE if they didn't perform the operation as requested since NO ONE had said anything about a HUSBAND to me when I paid the deposit up front . . . I had the surgery as scheduled. Nor did I tell them the Husband had been missing since his ejection FIVE years before.

That nurse broke the privacy act when she told your husband anything!!!
This is exactly why I had my tubes tied 10 minutes after my last one was born when I was 35 (it was caesarian). The thing I did NOT like was my husband had to sign a paper saying he knew I was getting this done and it was OK with him.
His new wife has not had hers tied and he's too chicken to get a vasectomy. I hope she gets knocked up! He's 52, she's 39.

Remember when you were a kid & found out that your grandparents had 14 kids & raised the last one when they were retired??? Mmmmm???? Well, honey, this is how. This is why I had the surgery years ago, so I wouldn't worry. You can use a contraceptive foam with the pill for a couple of months as added protection - if they still make it.

That is just too scary to think you could still get pregnant with only 5 eggs. Be careful. emoticon

So the saga continues....



In the last post I said, "When and only when you have not had any periods, that means nothing at all, for one full year, then you are in menopause. If you go for 10 months with nothing and then whamo, it hits, however lightly, you start again form week 1 and have to go for another year.

Such is my case. I am starting over again from the beginning hoping for a year, but I no longer have any eggs and cannot get pregnant.
Everyone has a different number of eggs and it happens different
ly for everyone, hence the general confusion"

Hold on there!!! this part: "I no longer have any eggs and cannot get pregnant" not so true!!!

I talked to my doc and she said, well You have the boold test for FSH levels and it says. it is above 23 which is the stage where there are no eggs, but if you have the test again six months or so later the number can be back below 23 and guess what you still get pregnant!! tested mine it was at 5, FIVE!!!

I said WHAT!!!!!! She said now the chances of that are pretty slim but... and I said there's a but!!! It could happen.

Are you using anything, I said of course not, ya'll told me I could NOT get pregnant!!!!! She said you can use condoms, I said Uh,, no!!! then she said you can get back on the pill if you want, I said uh..... Yeah!!!!

Then when I call and talk to the nurse about where to send my prescription, I aks should I just start taking these since I don't know when my period should start, since it could be months before it happens again. She says, are you sexually active, i'm like what do you think, then she asks me are you using prevention, I just thought are you kidding me!!! NO!!!

The she says I have to talk to the doctor before I call this in. Now I'm thinking oh my God could I be pregnant!! How will I know since my periods are few and far between. First baby at 51!!!! She finally called my house, not my cell and told my Hubby that y prescription was called in, did not tell anything about what the doc said.

So, suffice it to say that I figure she would not have called in birth control if she had any inclination that I might be pregnant. So I started popping those babies as soon as I got home!!! Want to get that stuff back in me. At this point I may never get off them again!!!LOL

My doc is retiring in October, she is about 2-3 years older than me. So I figure she has Retirement-itiss, because I have never had an issue like tis in 25 years. She is always so precise and makes sure I understand everything.

Sorry this was so long but I just thought ya'll might appreciate my comedy of errors that is Menopause for me!!!!

If I end up pregnant will let ya'll know and my doc will be raising a little one during her retirement which starts in October. LOL

Thanks for hanging in there,

Kim emoticon
