I dunno. But some millennials are old enough to be part of a protected class for ageism, so it’s getting less and less likely that reverse ageism is the problem.

What's the best way to not feel burnt out?

In preparation for a new stim cycle(my 3rd), started bcp and had a SHG /ultrasound last week. Was sore for 2-3 days after. My period came as predicted but the soreness/burning is back. I called the doctor and they said just monitor, maybe you are sensitive to ultrasounds etc. (had a ton of them before with no issues). I started shots and go back for another ultrasound Monday and I am worried that things feel off. Not asking for medical advice. Wondering if anyone experienced something similar?

How do you know when you're burned out and what do you do about it?
