  3. Clearblue fertility monitor

    Hi StPaul34, Thanks for replying to my post. My HRT is combined so when I go on to the progesterone part it also includes oestrogen. I am convinced that I wasn't ovulating. It seems to occur a few days after I go on the progesterone part of cycle. I have also been feeling very slight feelings of hot flushes/night sweats but very slight to the point were I think I am imagining it! I visited the other site briefly the other night and recall seeing a post from someone else who said that their LH was not surpressed by HRT. Obviously it would be amazing if I was but I really don't think so. Also the last LH surge took place on day 21 of this cycle and I am now on day 28. I feel like my period is about to come. If I did ovulate then it should not come for around 14 days after day 21. I think my hormones are goign a bit crazy just now. My best friend is pregnant and a few others are too and I feel like I am obsessed with the whole issue ofnot being able to have an other child. When I meet uo with them I find it so difficult to enterinto all the baby talk. I am happy for them but sad for me. Sometimes I do feel full of self pity and it's really hard to shake off. But thanks very much for replying to me. I will visit the other site properly as everyone here is fantastic and the more advice and help the better. Thanks to everyone. I wsih everyone the best in trying for a family and just getting through this very difficult diagnosis. Take care. Yvonne x
  4. Clearblue fertility monitor

    Hi Scout, Thank you very much for your kind words. I hope your pregnancy is progressing well and that you are keeping well. It's difficult to talk to other people around me as I think they find it difficult and feel awkward as they can have more children etc and I don't want them to feel bad because they can and I can't. I'm just having one of those bad days where I cry a lot and am feeling sorry for myself. I am very lucky to have a child already as I know most of the woman here don't have that and I feel guilty for feeling like this. Anyway eough of my rambling! Look after yourself and keep us all posted on how you are doing. Many thanks. Yvonne x
  5. Hi everyone, I'll apologise now for the lengthy and most probably, rambling post. I am really hoping that someone out there might be able to help with this query. I have been on HRT now for seven months and my symptoms began almost two years ago. For the last five months or so I have been using the clearblue fertility monitor. Last month it indicated peak fertility by recognising a surge in LH. This happened on day 18 of my cycle. Unfortunately my other half was out of the country and I was completely devastated as I had been praying and hoping for this to happen for such a long time. This month the same thing happened and a surge was detected on day 21. I am thinking now that I wasn't actually ovulating at all and that it's just my crazy hormones torturing me. There were no other signs such as cervical mucus etc and when I asked my doctor if she could do a blood test to find out what is going on she said there would be no point due to being on the HRT and we would not have a clear picture. It's now day 25 and I feel like my fake period is going to arrive in the next few days. I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience or had any ideas on what might be going on. I take 2mg of oestrogen for 16 days and then 2mg oestrogen and 1mg progesterone for 12 days. I really feel like I am going mad. Most of my friends are pregnant with their second child or have already had another and I am struggling to cope so much. I am so very lucky to have had a little boy aged three before all of this began and had no idea I was going to go through menopause. When does the pain ever stop? I don't feel like I have moved on at all at times. I know I have a child but the emotional pain is so awful. I feel like an emotional wreck and have a terrible longing for another child. It doesn't help that I work in social work with children and their families and sometimes have to cope with pregnant mothers using drugs etc. Feel like I have been a bad person at some point and am being punished for this. Anyway, sorry for the long ramble and thanks for listening. I don't know what I would do without this site as it has been so helpful to me. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you. Yvonne x
  6. Fertility monitoring

    Hi Laura and Mchelle, Thanks very much for replying. Mchelle I was wondering what the NIH explained about supression of FSH and LH. Surely this would then contribute to preventing ovulation? It's all so confusing! I doubt there are any eggs left in me but I can but pray for a miracle. I will for you too. In the meantime I will continue to use the monitor. I can't imagine how I will react if the monitor ever signals the LH surge. I so much want it to happen but as time goes by and I get older it becomes increasingly unlikely. Iwish you both well and for happiness in the future. Thank you. Yvonne
  7. Fertility monitoring

    Hi everyone, Hope someone out there will be able to help with this question. I was diagnosed with early menopause a year and a half ago. Think I might well be through menopause now but I still hope and pray that a miracle will happen. I went on HRT last year for around four months but came off as I was told that I would never ovulate because HRT surpressed FSH. No period ever came and my FSH was tested at around 96. I ended up going back on HRT in March of this year as the symptoms were quite bad and I felt completely exhausted all of the time. Anyway, to my question! Has anyone out there been on HRT and used the monitor with any success? It normally asks for a test stick on day 7 and when I do this it comes up as high oestrogen right up until day 26. After this my HRT induced period comes a few days later. I think the advice I was given must be true, as when your body thinks you have high oestrogen levels then FSH will not stimulate any possible follicles that might be there. This is because when follicles mature they give off the same message. Does anyone know anything more about this? I recently went on a lower dose of HRT to see if this helps but seems to be the same. I would really appreciate any advice from you as you guys have helped me so much in the past. Hope to hear from you. Many thanks. Yvonne

    Hi everyone, Just wanted to wish you all the very best with your pregnancies and hope all goes well. It's really great to hear how well you are all doing and to know that spontaneous ovulation can and does happen sometimes. Take care. Yvonne
