Hello! My name is***** and I will take the time to answer your question =)

There is no 'funding' to help with fertility. Your best bet would be to see an ob/gyn doctor and be referred to an REI specialist (reproduction, endocrinology, and infertility) as they specialize in finding ways to get women pregnant. Given your age and proximity to menopause, becoming pregnant will be difficult to say the least, but anything is possible and you should exhaust all of your local physician options to get the latest details on various treatments that may be available to you.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
