DUH!I know I have hit many low points during this 3 year old journey but now I am at the worst place possible. I can't cope guys. I am sorry for being so open and I hope I am not stressing out anyone..
As you may remember in February I went on BCP to lower FSH and LH which were high at baseline. When they started to come down, a follicle grew and I did ovulate. However I was told to stay on BCP for more days and as a result i became oversuppressed( all hormones, fsh, lh, e2 were 0). In March we reduced the dose of bcp to half so that FSH and LH will rebound and they did-but nothing grew. In April we stopped bcp completely and nothing is growing. E2 keeps being undetectable.
Before this happened I used to ovulate regularly even with SKY high fsh and lh. To make it all worse I am hurting-my joints are killing me, my soul is hurting!
Anyone have this happened to them? Anyone recover from E2 zero? What on earth happened? Why am i not growing anything even though fsh and lh have rebounded..Is this the dreaded menopause? I am just 42..
PS-anonymous I know you will have a party with this post. I won't answer you so don't bother posting.
Dear Alma,thank you so so so much!!! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences! Thank you for helpimg me! My next monitoring is today but i am not hopeful. My menopausal symptoms are killing me. I pray this isnt the end of my journey. Again feeling so grateful for your help and support. Thank you!!! All the best to you!!! Xxx joyDear Joy, I am not bothered at all by the questions. Only in this case I am not sure I have the right answers.
When I did have cysts (not often) I haven't managed to grow a good follicle, but I also got rid of the cysts pretty quickly. So I don't know what would have happened if I stayed with them with high FSH. Now that I think about it, I think I got BCP in such cases. But I am really unable to tell what is right. I even remember my local RE saying once that "I got BCP because of the cyst".
Maybe someone else has more experience with this. Otherwise, I would not self-medicate, I am afraid it might cause more harm than good.
Really sorry I am not able to help... Hope you soon find the right answer. If an RE want to administer BCP and gives you an explanation for it, I would take it. Anyway, hope you manage to get over this soon...
