    @Summer, thank you for that advice! so do u think a naturopath is the best option? What sorts of things did they have you do/ change??
    To heal my Hashimoto's there was a fairly intensive protocol, the most important thing was to be 100% gluten free as this triggers the antibodies. The protocol was a combination of anti-inflammatories (turmeric based), fish oil, selenium, vitamin D, thyroid support herbs and adrenal support. Iron levels were low too, so something for that. But the selenium, D, anti-inflammatory combo was the most important bit. Digestive issues can also play a part, so getting the digestive system really healthy was part of it too.

    It can take time to reduce the antibodies as they are often decades in the making, so it can take six months to a couple of years depending how high the antibodies are. Naturopaths treat the immune system, as it's not just a thyroid issue, it's autoimmune. So that can really work and I'm almost off my thyroid hormone now which is brilliant!!!

    @Tahli yes the virus and the Bell's could definitely have thrown ovulation out, I did pee on an ovulation stick on Day 14 and it was negative, but I only did the one and then shrugged and didn't worry about it. We normally DTD every day or second day anyway (although not when we're fighting ) so I feel like I'd always catch ovulation - knowing when is only so I can count down the days until I can POAS

    So it is possible I ovulated later this month, it makes sense as then my luteal phase would still be 14 days from ovulation so AF would be late. Normally if I was UTD I'd have really sore b00bs already and I don't, so I'd say things must have been thrown out with that bad virus and subsequent Bell's.

    Cycling together in March would be awesome!! I had it all planned out with the timing and now AF is late it throws it out a bit as normally I can plan to the day and had already booked my March appt to pick up all my drugs and review the plan! Quite often I do what @Charlie74 does and I'll be early next month so that it averages 28 days anyway, so hopefully the appointment I made for the 7th will still be OK!

    @BlondeinBrisvegas your poor little DD! And poor you having to clean up everything - not fun! You must have breathed a sigh of relief when ex-DP departed, just for the reduction of tension and chance to just sit back and take a breath and take stock of all that's happened. Hope it is just a 24hour bug and that DD recovers very quickly

    I did and then cursed the Universe that he wasn't here when sh!t..or more accurately, vomit hit the fan with DD yesterday evening/night!!!

    Yes..cleaning the lounge cushions was particularly fun I must say!!!

    she's over the worst of it by the end of the day

    There's been no more vomiting and she's managed a little to eat/drink so that's a good sign to me

    P.S....AF still hasn't arrived for me either and the longer it takes the more bloated, tired and cranky I get!!!

    It also means the worse the pain/flow will be when it finally does start

Never did anything about it bcos it kind of came & went, but I used to wonder whether I had IBS. I saw my GP last week to get my thyroid antibodies tested again b4 doing my FET. And on that day I was coincidentally in agony for 24 hours due to bloating, gas, cramping of my bowel. Something I ate.. But don't know what exactly. My doc suggested having a fructose breath test. Which I might do eventually. But maybe I should just get right into a naturopath?

    If I get the antibodies results tomoro and they are high again I think I'm gonna start my pred earlier than Dr M suggested (which was cd1). I think I'll start ASAP on just 5mg then go up to his cd1 dose of 15mg when AF starts. I'm not confident that the antibodies will be really low by the time I get to transfer if I'm only on 15mg pred for 19 odd days. I know the pred def lowered them last time but was still a fair way over normal.

    Thanks summer X
    Yes the pred can definitely lower the antibodies in the short term as it supresses the immune system, but as you can't stay on it long term without pretty serious side-effects you have to find another way to get the immune system under control. Gut issues can trigger the immune system, if there is inflammation in the gut it can cause leaky gut syndrome and that can fire up the immune system, especially when gluten is eaten.

    A good naturopath (not all are good!) could really make a difference - what area are you in?

    Uggghhhh - the worst! We had our doggy inside the other night and the poor thing must have had an upset tummy and did lots of runny dog poo all over the tiles. We got out of bed and saw it and I just turned to DH and said "that's yours" and I took doggy for a long walk and left him with it Although I had to clean up two yucky ones on the walk, poor thing...

    Vomit, dog poo - it all sucks!

    Yep, I hear you with the PMS ramping up when late, I am so snappy this morning, lucky DH and DSS have gone out for a while, I'm ready to jump down their throat!

    Glad DD is on the improve!

    I met her at a conference and also had a friend see her as a patient, I think she's pretty switched on, but I don't have first hand experience. I guess if she's close to you it is worth having an initial consult and seeing what you think!
