Hi Beti & Rebekah,
Thank you both for responding - hopefully we'll all find our way out of this soon... Although I would not wish this diagnosis on everyone, I feel a little less alone to know there are other women out there with similar experiences.
Rebekah, it is great to know you had success - every bit of hope helps
Thanks Beti also for the autoimmune suggestion - I have not tested for this and will mention it to my local RE... Many women here also mention it, but I guess I just assumed there was so much 'wrong' with me in the first place (i.e. ovaries that seemed to have given up) that it just seemed a very long shot. Maybe I should reconsider...
