POF and high FSH levels. Is pregnancy possible?
An_249691 posted:

Since last 3 months I missed my menstrual period. Went to see a doc and was diagnosis as POF with my FSH levels over 50. I am 41 and had a late looking to conceive. My ultrasound test show few ovarian cysts. Can anyone help me to understand is there any relationship between cysts and high FSH levels. I am quite worried about my chances to conceive and most importantly would it be an early menopause. I also have arthritis in my knees and so wondering if this situation is going to worsen my arthritis problem. Is there any treatment for my problem? will I be able to conceive and live a normal sex life for at least next 6 years of my life. Please advise
