Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

It sounds like you are entering perimenopause or even menopause.

This is the time in life when a woman goes from being fertile to infertile and is a normal part of the human cycle.

There is nothing to do in terms of treatment, unless you get the uncomfortable symptoms of insomnia, hot flashes etc, as this is a normal part of life.

You can read more on the topic here:



In terms of having a baby naturally, that's highly unlikely and rare at 47. You need to talk to your doctor about IVF.
