I am concerned that I am not having withdrawal bleeding on continuous sequential HRT. No others symptoms or problems -- feeling great! I wanted to do HRT on this schedule to keep uterus healthy , i.e., endometrium flat ... But my 1st and only ultrasound, after only 8mos of HRT (Vivelle dot .1mg x2 weekly and 14 days of 200mg Prometrium each month), shows thickened endometrium at 1.2 cm?? US was done on day 4 after last Prometrium tab -- maybe too soon in cycle?

My doctor doesn't want to start me on thyroid meds because she is worried that they will aggravate my symptoms. I just don't know what to do - my life has completely fallen apart, I can't work, sleep, concentrate or even follow simple conversations. I am in a constant state of panic. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of thing? I feel like I'm slowly dying. Please help!
Beta was done 11 days past ET and I got a BFP!!! Try not to worry to much, alot of people say they feel no symptoms at all and still get a BFP. Best of luck to you.
The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
How many days after IUI would you experience pregnancy symptoms? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/184972'>how many days after iui would you get pregnancy symptoms OPEN</a>.
I am 55 and went through menopause almost 5 years ago. I use a generic weekly estradiol patch (.1 mg) and Prometrium (200 mg) every night due to extreme menopausal symptoms. I change my patch on Monday evenings. I bleed for several days beginning every other Monday. Could this be caused by the patch losing effectiveness before the week is up? Would switching to Vivelle Dot, which has a twice a week schedule, help prevent the bleeding?
Headaches are a common side effect of women taking birth control pills which contain ethinyl estradiol.Ethinyl estradiol in Diane can also cause nausea and vomiting. Once you stop taking Diane you will experience withdrawal bleeding. You seem to be manifesting with severe nausea, headache and vomiting. It is suggested to contact your attending gynecologist and get a clinical examination done. If the symptoms are severe you may need an alternative birth control method. I sincerely hope it helps.
If you start having symptoms of being hypo, you could add a source of T3 to bring your level up, as it appears that you may not be converting FT4 to FT3 properly. FYI - to save money, you could eliminate the Total T4 and Total T3 tests; they are actually considered obsolete and of little value, since Free T4 and Free T3 tell so much more.
Hello Everyone! If anybody has similar symptoms to mine and has gotten a diagnosis please respond. I'm tired of going to doctors and being looked at like I am crazy (this has been confirmed NOT to be the case by my psychiatrist of 7 years !) The short story is: 47 yo female current meds: neurontin - 1100mg/day - for panic disorder allegra - 180mg/day; singular 10mg/day; flovent 220mcg/day (all for allergies/asthma) asperin - 325mg/day - blood thinner 03.2005 - spinal fusion - L4-5 04.
5mg) daily for about 7 years until recent, I stopped it to see how my body reacts because I have myriad of other symptoms. I read about side effects of long term use of Florinef, and wonder if it may have cause some of my other symptoms. I am 33, soon to be 34. Florinef is synthetic for aldosterone, and would Florinef raises deoxycorticosterone level? If not, what causes deoxycorticosterone to rise? Thank for any insight.
Sorry to hear about your symptoms, glad everything was normal in yo9ur workup. From your description, it sounds like you have menstrual migraines +/- headache, which is thought to be due to the withdrawal of estrogen during thw=e normal menstrual cycle. Traditionally, there seems to be some improvement with high dose NSAIDs like Motrin, triptan meds like Imitrex and ZOmig, combo of tylenol and caffeine, and finally an IV med called DHE.
2013-late March 2013 symptoms came back Late March symptoms manageable some days.
It wouldn't surprise me if these things are related, but my question would be, are these possibly early menopause symptoms? or just the new wiring of someone who has probably put her ovaries through stress with the treatment? Also does this mean I'm infertile? And is there anything I can do or need to watch out for? Thanks for your time.
Many of us pituitary patients started out with similar symptoms to yours. I've dismissed by doctors and have experienced frustrations in my own journey to get diagnosed, treated and to feel better. I can't speak for all of pit pats, but I think that this is more the norm then then the exception. We have to build a thick skin, stay focused and plow forward. Good luck Horselip This is from that group I mentioned....
How old are you guys?
She said that the doctor tried to "push it back up". So the questions is, is it normal for a uterus to fall and then to be able to push it back up that easily? I thought it sounded strange but....................
I started feeling the withdrawal symptoms so badly. I decided to call my doc and let her know how I was feeling. She said she would go ahead and up my dose to the vicodin 7/750 and I will take 7 a day for the next five days. Then she'll lower it to 6 vic's ES for 5 days and so on. I am so happy my doctor did this because I heard this was the best way to go. I am feeling so much better now too. Anyways my question is have any of you been able to get off vicodin doing it this way?
This article has a chart showing the "steroid pathway" that changes Testosterone to estradiol and then estrogen. http://metabolichealing.com/the-endocrine-journey-steroidal-hormones-their-pathways/ The article below mentions the testosterone converting into the estrogen that causes the gynecomastia: "Breast enlargement can also develop as testosterone can be converted to estrogen via the enzyme aromatase." http://www.drlam.com/articles/adrenal_fatigue_and_hormone.asp?
) to other hormones such as estradiol and DHEA. Estradiol plays a role in penile blood flow. Perhaps when estradiol is too high or too low - for the particular individual - flow is affected negatively. In some people, a good level may be 25. In others - particularly those with higher end testosterone levels - a level of 40-50 may be better. So long as a person isn't exhibiting signs of excess estrogen (e.g.
no more depression or panic attacks after just 5 days on meds, and in 3 weeks dropped 15 lbs, and another 5 gradually over the next month or so. No hyper symptoms at all. I tried to go on Armour, to very bad effect, which led to my PCP sending me back to endos who screwed with my meds over and over again, saying I didn't need them. Of course I had return of symptoms and was miserable.
They mess with your central nervous system and cause withdrawal symptoms between doses and if they aren't raised often. Called tolerence withdrawals. They slow down every function of the body, including thyroid, pituitary, everything. They are what caused me to become permanently ill. Benzo.org. UK is good for info and ************. There are millions out there damaged. They are only to be used for 2-3wks. Sorry, but had to say something. They lower cortisol, too.
I don't quite see how he's diagnosing Hashi's. TGab seems negative, and I don't see a TPOab. FT4 is low at 30% of range; it should be closer to 50%. FT3 is very low at 37% of range. Many people find that has to be > 67% before symptoms are relieved. Hair loss is a symptom of hypo. When you were on thyroid meds, if your doctor wasn't testing FT3 and FT4 every time you had labs, then it's quite possible that you never got your FT3 and FT4 high enough to stop the hair loss.
Hi, Caffeine Allergy Symptoms Caffeine allergy symptoms range from a minor rash to life threatening seizures. The severity of the reaction depends on what the person is actually allergic to and to what extent a person is allergic. Some of the reactions associated with caffeine allergies include difficulty breathing, shock, tongue, and facial swelling.
I have chest tightness and shortness of breath in addition to other proplems asociated with PMS and Endometriosis when I ovulate and right before my period. I have had doctors tell me that this problem is anxiety and try to push anti-anxiety meds on me. First of all, only a Psychologist or Psychiatrist should diagnose mental disorders and I don't even have an anxitey disorder. I'm convinced it's hormonal. I have read that oral contraceptives can help.

Hi Everyone. How are you? I'm new to this board and am hoping that you ladies can help me.
