Post subject: Advice please -
Heya, I haven't been on here for a while, but need advice.
I have Hypothyroidism and have irregular periods, which also means it's difficult to conceive. I have decided I want another baby, but I am gutted thinking I eon't conceive. Firstly I wanted to announce I'm officially ttc. I took a test yesterday as I haven't had a period in two months. Longest i've gone is about five weeks before now. Before I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, I had one shot of the depo-injection last August, could that have anything to do with the lack of my period this time? The pregnancy test was a poundland one. The instructions aren't clear so I didn't know how long to leave it in the urine, the urine stopped going across halfway across the window, so I put it back in . Would this have affected the test? Should I take another? And should I use a more expensive test? Thoughts please xxxx

Well just as I was leaving for the Doctors, I started to bleed. Which is no surprise, because i've had pain around my Ovaries again. It's very light but again, with my periods being as they are. I'm not surprised.
My Thyroid is being retested, and I am having a full blood count due to swollen lymph nodes for a while now.
At least I am getting closer to a healthier me, and I can now monitor my cycles.
Thank you for the responses. Xxx
