Is It Too Late?

I am a 41 year old lady and single. I am believing God for a Husband and Kids, however a friend made a statement to me a while ago saying that I have left it too late on both counts. Surely not, what do you think?

With God all things are possible, if it is your heart's desire then God will make it come to pass. Believe it and receive it. Mrs Sarah Palin had her child at 44, you go girl>

For marriage, its not too late, as far as having a child, you need to check your doctor on that.

POV or POF is basically a condition in which a woman experiences her period later in life, but unfortunately experiences menopause early. It is more likely to happen to people of European and Asian descent. And can sometimes be genetic or it can be a wild card gene.

If one is diagnosed with such a condition, Estrogen shots/pills maybe prescribed to that person by a licensed OB/GYN to in which be able to have more of a liable chance to have children.

Some might be unfortunate enough to experience the their first period at age of 20 and then suddenly be experiencing the symptoms of Menopause at age 27.

Here is what i find on it.

Menopause

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Menopause is the permanent shutting down of the female reproductive system, a considerable length of time before the end of the lifespan. Menopause occurs in a variety of animals, including humans. It is usually a natural process.

Age of onset

The average age of menopause in the Western world is 51 years, and the normal age range for the occurrence of menopause is somewhere between the age of 45 and 55. Last period ever occurring between the ages of 55 to 60 is known as a "late menopause". An "early menopause" on the other hand is defined as last period ever between the age of 40 to 45.

Rarely the ovaries stop working at a very early age, anywhere from the age of puberty to age 40, and this is known as premature ovarian failure (POF), also commonly referred to as "premature menopause". 1% of women experience POF, and it is not considered to be due to the normal effects of aging. Some known causes of premature menopause include autoimmune disorders, thyroid disease, diabetes mellitus, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. However, in the majority of spontaneous cases of premature menopause, the cause is unknown.

Premature menopause is diagnosed or confirmed by measuring the levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH); the levels of these hormones will be abnormally high if menopause has occurred. Rates of premature menopause have been found to be significantly higher in fraternal and identical twins; approximately 5% of twins reach menopause before the age of 40. The reasons for this are not completely understood. Transplants of ovarian tissue between identical twins have been successful in restoring fertility.

This is the 21st century, yes you may have decreased your chances but it doesn't mean it's still not going to happen. There are many factors, also your spouse must be healthy and have a high sperm count too, just go to your doctor and ask for options.

Don’t allow these people to deceive you

It difficult for women your age to get pregnant, including the complications you might face while giving birth

I knew what my mom faced when she got pregnant with our last born 9yrs, she was about the same age as you.

Adopting a child is the best option, but if you are willing to take the risk of having your baby,i wish luck

Menopause don't start early for women with virgin wombs.

A woman can make babies at 60 provided it's her first time of doing so.

@poster,

It is not too late. You may end up in early grave if you consume d negative comments you would get from people. Don't dispair. I read in paper every week of men looking for spouses who are around that age. What it mean is that you can find one ready man. But be careful. Don't try to wash of acid on your body with boiling water.

Nothing is ever too late in life. After all white people marry in their 50's. I don't know about kids though but I'm sure you must have hit menopause right?

It's not too late!!!

A woman can have kids anytime she wants to IF she has never given birth before, so you are safe.

If single mothers of 45 can get married, i see no reason why u cannot.

Open up and socialise more. There are some kind of men interested in women like u.

Good luck.

Dont even listen to pple like that, there is nothing like too late, ppls can get married at almost any age, besides, time has changed when pple must marry at age of 25 or 28, it can still happen,  however, you must be able to stand out of the crowd, you cant be lazy, with no job and bring nothing to the table, and expect a man to marry you, cos they will se you as a liability.

So sister, my advice is get something going if you dont have one, change ya wardrobe and change your steppings and shake what ya momma gave you and let them men drool, and you will be fine.

Good luck, but pls, dont settle for less, cos i blv in better to be singler than to marry the only fool on earth.

And if you decide to be single, you cld just have one kid jare, and you will be aiight.
