I am a 24 yo female and going through menopause due to a stem cell transplant. AMA!
I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 2011 and in order to get rid of it I had to go through a huge amount of chemotherapy to kill my bone marrow and transfuse my brother's stem cells into me to make new, non-cancerous bone marrow.
PROOF: here is my blog that I wrote in while going through treatment
Edit: More proof: this is me getting my new stem cells! Also some pics of me and my SO going through my treatment and recovery: http://i.imgur.com/7JFkVMb.jpg http://imgur.com/m8qHC6l http://i.imgur.com/UGjpcit.jpg http://imgur.com/1XgoCgQ http://i.imgur.com/hm6wavZ.jpg
Edit2: just to clarify: the stem cell transplant did not cause my infertility, it was the high dose chemotherapy that caused it. The stem cells allowed my body to make new bone marrow that wasn't cancerous to save my life.
