A while back I had located a support board for POF individuals using the NIH Study protocol with Vivelle Dot, but have lost the link. Does anyone by chance know what this board/web address might be?
Also, I am curious to know if anyone here taking Vivelle has had any issues with weight gain? A little history about me... We were TTC when I found out I was POF, it was strange as I went from having normal cycles to skipping cycles overnight. My FSH went through the roof (as high as 76), etc. I went on to do a DE cycle last May and we now have beautiful twins!
Since their birth I had one cycle and then nothing... followed by horrid hot flashes/night sweats/etc. My doctor drew some bloodwork and found my FSH to be in the 70's again (not that it surprised me) and put me on Vivelle/Prometrium. I have been on the Vivelle for 3 weeks now and am gaining weight rapidly - it has to be the Vivelle. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there anything that will combat this?
I am also curious how you all take the Vivelle/Progesterone?
Thanks so much!
