Hot! Hot! Hot! (flashes?)

Hi guys... sorry it has been so long between posts. I barely have time to write on my main blog (My Twinspirational Journey) and I haven't had anything new to say on the POF front. I went to an Endocrinologist last month, per suggestion of my OBGYN. Since my ovaries are back to not working and my 36th birthday around the corner, I think it's safe to say I won't be getting prego again. Especially since I'm not on the 47,000 herbs and supplements I was on to get pregnant last year. Anyway, my thyroid was back on the high side as well (hypothyroidism- slow thyroid) so I had to go back on meds for that. Neither her or I were too concerned about my hormone levels since my estrogen was still okay. But I have a gut feeling that is going to plummet faster than a bowling ball off a rooftop. Just as I knew when I got tested again after having the twins that my FSH would be back on the rise. (51.6)

What I like about this doctor is that she is more on the natural side and doesn't push birth control or HRT. She actually agreed that if my estrogen drops again I should go back to Dr. Fu (my TCM doctor) to get herbs from her since it worked so well in correcting my hormone levels before.
So I have to get my levels checked again this coming week and will find out at my appointment on the 20th if my levels have gotten worse. I wouldn't be surprised. Lately I have been having trouble falling asleep and I've been feeling hot at night. No night sweats as of yet, but definitely feeling like my core temperature is higher. It could just be a fluke, but both of those things together is a combo I am all too familiar with. I saw Dr. Fu recently and mentioned to her about being considered post-menopausal again and she was really surprised. Even she calls them my miracle babies. She also told me she tells my story to her clients. I think that is REALLY cool because just last year I was the one hearing success stories about other clients. It's truly amazing. And it makes me feel so good to know that my story can bring the same hope and encouragement I used to feel when hearing them. Apparently she's had several people come in who said they read my blog. That is seriously wonderful. I wish the same luck and success to each of them and to all of you!

I'll keep you posted on my levels...

Stay strong and never lose hope!

Sending positive vibes your way!!

  1. Hi there, I've recently stumbled across your blog. Thank you for writing this. I have had a very similar journey as I too was diagnosed with POF and I too did TCM religiously. I got pregnant last summer which was an absolute miracle but no heartbeat was detected by the 9 week U.S. Sadly, I miscarried. My question to you is did you take progesterone supplements in the early days/months of your pregnancy? I didn't see anything in your posts about that. I keep blaming myself for the pregnancy not progressing because I did not take progesterone. Especially after working so hard against all odds to conceive. Anyway, if you could let me know I'd appreciate it. Thank you. Lisa.

  2. First, CONGRATULATIONS! I too, stumbled across your blog when I Googled "Diminished Ovarian Reserve", which is my unfortunate situation. We have been trying for over 2 years and have done rounds of meds with no luck and would like to move on to IVF, but money doesn't grow on trees. In the meantime while still hunting for the funds for an IVF, I am going to try your herbal regimen and see if we get any luck and a BFP. I just had my baseline ultrasound this past Monday and my RE saw 3 antrals on the left and 1 antral on the right. We're hoping that winner egg is in there still. Your story was truly inspiring and gave me a little bit of hope back that I lost some time ago. Thank you.

  8. okorohomeofrefuge@gmail.com, I contacted Dr Okoro in regards of my Husband.who was no longer wanted to associate with me anymore.He was interested in working out of marriage,after begging and pleading with him I realized it was because of another woman,that he really was leaving me.My co-worker went threw a similar situation and told me that YOU had helped her. I cant thank you enough, I'm grateful she introduced me to YOU. After discussing the resolution with YOU, your get your boyfriend back spell has done more than what I expected. My husband not only came back to me, but he had also totally left his other woman for me and now we are happily married with kids, I don't know what I would have done without YOU,I believe you are my guardian angel.Dr Okoro,I want to thank you & your gods for all that you've done for me since all these days.I'm thankful for all the time & effort you & your gods have put into my case.I am very happy and I will always be grateful sincerely,His email is okorohomeofrefuge@gmail.com
