Just thought I'd say there are a few others who rival you, but I don't know their exact birthdays. The ones I'm thinking of don't tend to frequent the random threads like this, but stick to journals. I wanted to make sure you knew you're not the only 45 year olds around!

I am new and need a buddy I am going to be 46 in a matter of days and I am newly married to a younger man. I am ttc naturally and I am not telling anyone--besides my husband, of course. I am going to try my best but I am not doing anything drastic besides diet, exercise and a million supplements and herbs. Anyone have good news?

Hi Everyone

I'm new here too. I've been lurking for a bit but joined when I saw this thread. I'm 45 and 7 months and TTC. I've got older children but have a new partner who has no children and I'd love to give him a child.

Some days I feel quite positive about my fertility, other days not so much

My current concern is the spotting that I'm having this month. I didn't have it last cycle but I have had it a few months ago and I'm worried it's a sign of hormonal imbalance. I don't really want to go to my doctor because I'm afraid he'll just tell me I'm too old to have another baby or laugh in my face.

Is anyone here taking progesterone? I've read about that online and I'm wondering if I have a deficiency that's causing the spotting.It seems like my hormones vary from month to month far more than they did 10 years ago. It's frustrating.

Hi Delphine11,

I'm the same in my younger days had 30ish day cycle then noticed from Jan to May this year 27 then 32 in May and have had 25 days ever since...I think menopause is just round the corner and I spot for 2,3 or 4 days too. Although cycle day 24 and no spotting so far this month.

Your doctor may surprise you!!

Hi Felcity 45

Yes, I didn't really think much about how my periods were gradually and very subtlely changing over the last few years (since 40 or so). I didn't have a partner then so I wasn't thinking about TTC at all.

Over the last few years (3 maybe) my cycle has varied between 25 and 29 days, and in the last couple of years has usually been 25 days. I'd kind of got used to that and wasn't too bothered as nothing much else was different. To be honest, I probably wasn't that interested as I had no partner and life wasn't exactly fantastic so I had plenty of other things to worry about.

Now I REALLY want to conceive - for my new partner's sake far more than for my own. He'd be a fantastic dad.

I am remaining positive. One thing I read was that the path to moenopause isn't a downhill one. Hormomes go up and down month by month, and one month can be fine, the next not. So that's something to bear in mind

I'm gradually adding more supplements to my diet. The ones in brackets are ones I was taking anyway just for general health before TTC. If anyone's interested, I'm currently taking:

Chasteberry capsules - 400mg (started with one a day, now on two)
a pre-natal vitamin tablet
Vitamin B6 - 50mg once a day
(Omega 3 - one a day)
(Vitamin B Complex - just the normal 100% of RDA)
(Vitamin D - one a day)
(Garlic - one a day)
(Sea Buckthorn capsules - two a day (supposed to help CM) )
Royal Jelly - 500mg once a day (just started this very recently)
Co Q10 - 100mg twice a day
a cranberry concentrate tablet - one a day

Yes, I rattle! I've also just brought some wheatgrass capsules. I am feeling healthier so it can't hurt I introduce things gradually and start off on a low dose to see how it goes.

I also try to keep calm and relax (not so easy when you have the pressure of time!)

I think I probably will see my doctor at some point. I'm going to give it a bit longer to see if I can conceive myself; research a sympathetic doctor and see them if my normal one looks like he's not going to be very helpful; and prepare what I'm going to say in advance.

I swear I can hear the ticking clock some days, but I don't let it get to me. I say: Keep calm and keep healthy and keep your fingers crossed

Forgot to say that I've just started using Pre-Seed a few days ago. I don't know if it's doing anything but I like it and it's helping with the fact that I seem to have less CM than when I was in my 30s.

I haven't had any hormone tests yet because I don't want to be depressed I have read a lot about FSH though (hence the wheatgrass), and I've been reading up on Clomid.

Knowledge is power, as they say, and it makes me feel more in control.

Ha Ha, think I would rattle too!!

Haven't really taken anything yet, hormone levels are fine so bit reluctant to mess with things just yet, I did take a conception tablet for a while but it gave me really bad tummy ache

I think I need to maybe start considering it and taking the Clomid I've been prescribed but so unsure at the moment.

OH takes Zinc but nothing else, he has a low sperm count and the FS didn't really recommend anything else for him...IDK It's all so frustrating isn't it!!

I hope things work out for you and I would defo go and see someone as after 45 thats it by the looks of it unless you have lots of money. i've rang a few local clinics and they won't consider anyone over 45 and that was for IUI
