Hey ladies I know I’ve asked this before but I’m desperate to find someone who something similar! 

So I’m a carrier of a balanced translocation between one of my X chromosomes and one of my 7s chromosomes which could results in my baby either having too much or too little genetic information and it would most likely result in either a miscarriage or a possibility that my baby having both significant developmental and health problems 

Does anyone know if this can bring on early menopause I have all the sytmpoms of it and I have also done several menopause tests in which they have tested my FSH levels and they are all positive I’m just desperate to find someone who may have something similar

    Good morning @kadia22 and welcome, thanks for reaching out with your query.

    It's always advisable to speak to your GP when it comes to medical information and advice. I'm afraid I'm certainly no expert, so I can't answer your question directly, but I have marked your post as unanswered to encourage other members to share their thoughts. 

    Can I ask if you are pregnant now, just so that I understand fully? :)

    No I’m not and as it says in the post it’s very unlikely I can get pregnant

    Okay, thank you for explaining @kadia22 that's really helpful for me :)

    Is wanting to bring on early menopause something you've discussed with your GP before?

    My apologies @kadia22 blame the warm weather, I misread that! Hopefully another member who has experienced similar can shed some light on this for you.

    My amended question then is, if you've spoken about this with your GP, what did they say?

    Is it possible to request a different GP or a second opinion?

    It must be difficult not to feel heard @kadia22. Have you tried keeping a diary to track your symptoms, and how often you get your period (if at all)? That may help you to demonstrate to your doctor what symptoms you're having.

    If they're saying it's not early menopause, have they suggested what else may be causing your symptoms at all?
