I am 29 and recently married.  My husband and I are TTC.  I just came off the pill after 12 years.  It has been just under 3 months since my last pill induced period.  After first stopping the pill I had these horrible hot flashes and night sweats.  Couldn't sleep for the life of me, which was never a problem before.  For my regular yearly, I went to GYN who tested my hormone levels... guess what, they say that I have Premature Ovarian Failure, which means menopause before age 40... Yep, not what I expected nor wanted to hear.  Apparently I have high FSH, high LH, and too low estrogen and progesterone.

I was referred to an RE, who saw my test and said that he would test me again, but that he would put his eggs in the POF basket.  I retook the tests and here's the kicker... My levels are still high (in the post menopause range), but they are 50% lower! 

I don't know if I'm crazy, but I am taking it as a sign that my body is trying to get back to normal after stopping the pill.  Please tell me, do YOU think I'm crazy?  50% is a huge drop and all of the media I've read indicated that your body's own hormone production is suppressed after the pill, so maybe I need more time???

I usually believe doctors, but I don't want to in this case.  I stopped the pill less than 3 months ago.  My mother and sister, while they have irregular periods, both had children.  I think my body needs time.  What do you think?  Any advice?  I need all of the hope I can get! 

Still wishing, hoping and praying!
