Dear An_257539,
Highly unlikely it's a sign of impending menopause, so not to worry on that score. However, a bit of advice I tend to offer my patients who are 35 and wanting to have kids. If you are at a place in your life that kids would be a doable event now, why not think about it? Unfortunately, the older we get our ovaries do start to not crank out those eggs so well. I certainly wouldn't say go out and have a kid just to do so, if it's a terrible time for you-but if it's reasonable, give it some thought.
good luck,
Mary Jane
