    Hi Crystalpink

    When I first came to this forum, apart from the obvious trying to concieve-ing, my period was delayed and like you, I worried about early menopause.
    I am 37. Then I took the advice of all the girls here and started to take BBT (body basal temperature) more seriously and charting. and also supplements.
    I do not see traditional chinese medicine because I am not used to that method. I see a naturopath instead.

    I can understand your concerns and think you're doing well as a first step for getting good advice and insights here but are you trying to conceive or are you asking for gynae recommendations? I;m confused.

    Congrats praying hard!!! Is that why you disappeared for so long?!? =p

    Hi crystal pink- erm I am a lil' confused. So you aren't trying for a baby but you're looking for female gynae recommendations to kickstart a more regular menstrual cycle is it? Anyway I dont't think abdominal scan is enough to see what's happening in the vagina. There are many reasons to irregular menstrual cycle which could be fibroids, polyps, eggs not being released. We aren't professionals here - so great that you are seeking for professional help. I suggest you see a gynae. Female gynaes - I personally dont't know any.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi ebichan and littlej, yes Im here to read more on ways to seek help, traditional chinese medicine as well as good gynae that could solve my problem. Coz in order to conceive, menses need to be regular.. n my prob is irregular menses. So Im thinking if I can sort this out, then there shouldn't be signs of early menopause. Anyway, if one were to have cysts or fibroids, the menses should be long n heavy rgt? can I rule out this for my case since I dont't have heavy menses?? My menses is always delayed, between 30 to 45. Sometimes, skip a cycle. Lasted 3 to 5days only. Not heavy.. Btw, what is naturopath?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi Crystalpink,

    i am seeing dr ann tan from paragon. You may go google for her. she is very experienced, but very quick to diagnose, becuz she is really experienced.

    Checking for eggs, whether you are ovulating every month, checking for fibroids or polyps, that has to be done thru vaginal scan. Scan via tummy may not get to see much.


    There are many ways to regulate Ovulation. I for one did not ovulate regularly. Dr ann tan helped me conceive my baby with ivf. I had super thin lining as well, but this can be corrected with some medication. I was 29 when i did my first ivf. I was on clomid before, but clomid didnt work for me. Clomid usually causes lining to be even thinner. So if you know you got thin lining, skip clomid. Dont think your doc will insist or force you to be on clomid.



    You didnt share how old you are. Care to share? Just like Dragontail said, she is 40, i am 30. She is ovulating monthly and can get preggy naturally. I am not ovulating and cant get preggy on my own. Different people, different bodies.



    i tried traditional chinese medicine before. EYS at paragon. I didnt think EYS is good. Stuck with it for 4-5 months (every week 2-3 times) before i stopped seeing becuz i didnt think traditional chinese medicine helped me at all. Other ladies here are seeing other traditional chinese medicine docs that have very good reviews. Maybe you can try?


    Oh. another thing you can read up on. AMH level. It tells you the egg reserve you have in your body. It is done thru blood test. The lesser egg reserve you have in your body, the closer you are to menopause. The more eggs you have, you are likely to still continue ovulating (be it regular or not).


    If you want to see someone to help you with easing into menopause, i think you can research on gynaes who deal specifically with 'Age Management'. Dr Ann Tan is one of them, but she is really really expensive. Most ladies go to see her mainly for IVF. I believe she helps women of differnt age groups and different types of female problems.


    Good luck!

    oh crystalpink, being petite doesnt equate to having thin lining. No link at all. I know some other petite ladies who are extremely fertile with very nice thick linings.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi Happilymarried, Thks for sharing.. I have sent PM to you. Yes, I heard of this Dr Ann Tan but I got no intention to do IVF, so dont't think I will see her. I'm wondering how to check for any blocked tubes? Thru vaginal scanning as well? If the tubes are blocked, it should affect ovulation rgt? Oh that time when I did ultra sound scan for my womb, the Dr mentioned my ovaries no cysts, n thin lining which means no blood as at that point of time my menses was late. She also mentioned if too thick would lead to cancer. But that was just a brief explanation. Yes, I may want to continue with traditional chinese medicine . I stopped for quite some time as I got no patience .. maybe I should take the medication as well as acupuncture. Oh what does AMH stands for?? Is it hormones blood test?? Will it be accurate if going for this blood test when im not hving my menses or after menses end??( coz that is the time when we are not ovulating)

    Hello and welcome.
    I joined this forum in March when I missed my period wondering if its early onset menopause (it's not but not dismiss-able as Im 37).
    Like you I have regular periods except when I travel and I travel frequently.
    I am 10 weeks now and hoping my baby is fine. First Trimester is full of uncertainties.

    Hmmm how do I tahan the wait?
    I can't!! And many girls will attest to this, if its negative, they buy a little something or try something to encourage them the next cycle.
    4 months seems like a good time to be trying and knowing your cycle. How old are you this year and what are you doing, e.g. bbt, traditional chinese medicine?

    Just saw your message happilymarried! Yes I will keep the spirit up! Tiao my body first. The traditional chinese medicine medicine taste quite differently from weeks to weeks. Initially the medicine taste good but subsequently it comes a bit bitter..so yucky!

    hi polkadot... welcome.. i have waited so much longer than 4 months... years in fact... imagine how many 2ww is that... you can do gynae for a scan if you dont want to play the waiting game for so many rounds....

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    crystalpink, i think you can google what AMH is... here's more info --> What is

    yes amh is tested thru blood test from drawing blood from the arm.

    Hmm, i think if you have blocked tubes, you can still ovulate regularly. You may want to ask a gynae for more accurate info. The only thing that wont happen is pregnancy if you are sexually active.

    you can do HSG to check if you have blocked tubes. However, one will usually be more fertile after HSG (it is a common procedure and you can use dr google?).

    Hi, I think that since your periods are regular, you can try to do BBT boday basal temperature recording. That way you are able to learn through the dips and rises in temperature when you ovulated or will ovulate so you can aim for those days to increase your chances.
    It really depends on what you want to do or how you want to accelerate it naturally or not.
    If you are on the cautious side, you can go get scanned to see if there are any issues there.
    that way you can eliminate one by one.

    Oh I dont do traditional chinese medicine as I'm not really into the herbs but it depends on what you are used to.
    I believe it works well and many girls have had help to regulate their bodies for an optimal condition.
