I'm 38 and was recently diagnosed with POF after having irregular periods for years. I can't remember what my FSH levels were but I've had them tested a few times and they were very high on one test. The specialist suggested it is not worth having the hysteriosalpingogram test as the blood tests were pretty conclusive. She said egg donation is the most likely way that my DH and I can have a pregnancy.

Although I'm fairly new to this I read that POF can be caused by immune disorders. As one of my sisters had a very rare auto-immune disease a few years back, so I thought it was worth a test and the specialist agreed.

I've been told to contact my GP surgery about getting tested for any immunity problems. I've been putting it off due to Christmas and being a bit shell shocked about the whole thing :eek:

Can anyone point me towards any useful resources about immunity testing and POF? Will I just be required to have some more blood tests?

Thanks in advance  :)

Hi Minimon,

I can't help I'm afraid as I have no experience with Immunes but hopefully someone will come and give you some useful advice soon ^hugme^

Just in case nobody pops up I thought I'd post the link to the Immunes thread where someone might be able to help :)

Thanks for the link to that forum thread. I hadn't come across it before. Sounds like immune testing is a fairly complex area!
