I have fully missed my period now. I went to the doctor last week and we decided to do a couple of ultrasounds and blood tests to check what was going on. Blood work has come back and I have hypothyrodism, specifically Hashimotos disease. I also have hyperprolactinemia which can cause periods to stop, and pregnancy like symptoms to occur in my case. It is also possible I could have a benign tumor in my pituitary gland called a prolactinoma. It was advised to me by my family doctor, and the specialist that I hold off on ttc for quite some time until all is sorted out and back to normal.

I'm sorry and I hope you get everything worked out and get back to TTC as soon as you can.

I was wondering what happened to you & this is not the outcome I was expecting to hear. It's a good thing you saw the dr when you did & spotted the problem. Hopefully your body responds well to the treatment & you'll be back ttc before you know it.
