Home... Thank Goodness

Just a short update on the current plan, now that I am home.

This is what I am taking, if anyone has comments I would love to hear if you had any success on the same formula:
Daily Vitamin
B6 - 500mg sustained release
Fertile CM starting CD 10 until P+3
and we'll start back up with HCG this month too

ALSO - T3 every 12 hours. Now for those who have talked about T3 before and questioned seeing improvement, a little story... Last year I went to my eye doc with some serious night vision issues. It turned out my eyes were becoming very dry. Almost to a level of dangerous damage that he was going to take me off my contact lenses. The eye doc gave me some prescription eye drops and we hoped for improvement.

2 months later I am put on T3 with Dr. H.ilgers office. At my yearly appt with my eye doc (another 4 months later) he looked at my eyes, looked at the chart, looked at my eyes and looked at the chart. He then asked about my mention of T3 and how long I had been on it. Long story short - he says what my eyes were doing is a symptom of thyroid issues and the T3 has reversed my condition which he had not expected. He praised me on being aware of my health and said I had helped my eyes. There are other improvements I'll have to make a whole post on some time. More to come later....

All I know is that after 4 years of infertility I got pregnant right after starting on thyroid meds. I didn't sustain the pregnancy, but I am hoping we get another shot at it. I like to think the meds had something to do with that pregnancy.

That's really interesting because I also have very dry eyes, so dry that about seven years ago I had to stop wearing contacts, and before that I wore them with no problem. I've been on T3 for the last year and a half and my eyes haven't improved. I'm going to ask my doctor about this at my next appointment though!

I just finished reading through all your posts. So glad you finally were diagnosed and treated. It took me 4 doctors to get an endo diagnosis, but my pain was not anywhere near what you were facing. Also, I was going to the doctors for IF, not for problems with pain. They all told me that the pain I felt around my period was normal - all except my NAPRO doctor. They are truly wonder-workers.

I just sent part of this post to a friend. She has had terrible problems with dry eyes and can't wear contacts - maybe this is the underlying cause!
