.. i did ..
hi silly pup,
i posted them below, but will summarize since my posts were all messed up.
I had normal cycles until November. Well, short ones of about 25 days, but still.. ovulations, cycles, periods. Then I had one long cycle of 47 days in Dec., that was the last one until now. Then in December I tested my AHM - below 0.8 or so! Panicked, went to RE. But.. was never able to start anything, because my period never showed up again, FSH rose from 9 to 18 to 28 to 40 within no time. LH was 40 as well. Estrogen and Prog. were below low. They told me it is over.
I was told to take the pill, to simulate a cycle at least, but didn't want to, because I read that that can really shut down your ovaries.
So I went to a homeopath who gave me Sepia C200 globules. Didn't really know if this works, so far no experience with homeopathy. And you can't tell right away. Then to an endo doc to get natural estrogen and progesterone, which he told me to take BOTH until I start menstruating. Which again I didn't believe, because I read everywhere that prog. will keep you from menstruating. So I started taking the estrogen, then added progesterone after a while, then stopped both. Sort of like a normal cycle and to build up endometr. at least. After a little more than a week, I menstruated. This was last Saturday, though, so the ovulation, which obviously(?) took place was extremely early. So maybe not everything is 'in place', but in my opinion MUCH better than before!
So, I'm starting to wonder if maybe homeopathy DOES work, since I took Pulsatilla last weekend, which (I found out too late) is more for ovulation and not overall fertility, which I heard/thought. And ovulation is what obviously happened.
I also take a small dose of Maca and Ubiquinol, but more for 'egg quality'. And I started eating more healthy food
So, homeopathy and a small dose of bio-identical hormones I think did the trick.. Without the hormones, I would have been stuck with no endometrium build-up, heat waves, and mood swings.
That doc of mine.. I don't know. He's an older guy and not very experimental. He said at least three times I should consider egg donation even after we told him we don't want to give up on our 'own' child so quickly. I had some appointments with his son - which I thought was rude since without comment they switched doctors. But he is young and MUCH more positive, so after all I should be glad and may stick with him.
I wonder now what will happen with this cycle because endom. is thin of course. I hope not another long cycle!
But this does show that SOMETHING is going on again, right???
