I've never posted here, but I was hoping someone else might have the same issue and know where to look or have any advice.
I'm a childhood cancer survivor. I was diagnosed at age 5 with ALL, I relapsed at 7 and had a bone marrow transplant from my brother. That's the past, on to the current. I was told when I was young that I probably wouldn't be able to have kids and that I'd go through menopause by the time I was 30. Well, I'm 29 now and in a very commited relationship. My boyfriend and I have been looking extensively into getting pregnant as it's what we want most, to have a child together and there may be little time to accomplish that. So, I went into my general GYN and my AMH levels are extreamly low. So I went to see a specialist who told me that AMH levels aren't everything and to go off the pill and see if I could get a period. Well I did, it's not very regular, but it's there. So even though my AMH levels say I'm post menopausal, my period says otherwise. Well, to go further, I'm getting blood tests done now and I'm seeing the general GYN and I'm even using an ovulation test right now to see if we can get pregnant. I know the chances are low, but I really believe that I will have my own child of my blood. I just wanted to know if anyone is in this boat, feels like I do, or even has any information. I'm not sure how much I really want as I'm scared to look online too much and only see bad/sad information and get discouraged, but I thought someone here just might have a story to tell. Anyone willing to share?
