Pituitary Tumour - Any one else?

Hi All

I was diagnosed with a pituitary tumour (craniopharyngioma) back in 2000 and in 2001 had the tumour and gland removed so I have no hormones of my own :huh:

I take replacement hormones every day but due to my lack of LH & FSH I can't get pg on my own.

I am now on Menopur shots every day to induce ovulation, tomorrow will be week 5 of the shots. I just wondered if anyone else has had similar problems and has any advice or help (particularly if you got pg on these or similar meds).

xfingers to all

Xx J
