Does a low egg count mean early menopause?

      I recently got my antimullerian hormone levels tested and my doctor told me it was very low. He asked me if I was trying for pregnancy currently and suggested egg donation ivf.

      I’m still young (36) and wondering if menopause is about to hit me soon?

    • Hello Sheila,

      when facing early menopause, it is crucial to have a look at the symptoms. Those include irregular or missed periods, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, sensitive bladder, sleep problems, decreased sexual desire and moodswings, among other things.

      In case you have had fewer than 9 periods a year or missed more than three consecutive periods, you should consult your doctor and have a blood test performed in order to rule out other possiblities. Your doctor will also test your estrogen levels, as a lower level of estrogens is usually an indicator of a premature ovarial failure (early menopause).

      I hope I could clarify your question,

      All the best
