From the earlier posts Jeshiekah I see that you are in your twenties and that you had chemo for cancer. The odds of falling pregnant after chemo are far greater if you are under 30 at the time of treatment. Please let us know the outcome of the test!

Ok I have another question!! Does femoston have any way of interfering with a pregnancy test? Could it show a false positive for example??? Xx

OR could the hormone the pregnancy test is looking for be elevated anyway due to menopause?!

I just got a positive test and I donít want to get too excited if it doesnít mean anything.  :o

I think that the result can differ depending on what age you are although this may change due to the fact that you have had chemo in the past leading to early menopause. It seems quite complicated and I would think you definitely need the advice of a GP on this as you can't accurately measure the amount of HCG you are producing and how quickly it is rising which seems to be the definitive test?

I think that you are wise to be cautious but wait your update with bated breath!

Agreed. Iím going to phone my HRT clinic first today as they probably know a bit more. If nothing from them then Iíll go to my GP. Sometimes the HRT clinic is a bit too busy. I think I need gradually blood testable or something to find out whatís going on. Xx

Thank you all for your support and words though itís been so helpful x

Iíll definitely let you know how I get on. Tried calling my hrt clinic at Uclh this morning burn no one ever answers. Grr! I thought itíd be best to go through them rather than my GP as they know my background a bit more. But if they donít answer it looks like Iíll have to just call GP. The only other thing I could do is call my cancer clinic?! X

So the HRT clinic said itís fine to go through GP so Iím going to see them tomorrow. And registered with the maternity thing around here, itís all new to me as weíve only moved here recently too. Extra confusion. Basically theyíll now sort out the tests I need to confirm the pregnancy xxx

Thank you :)

I just spoke with a doctor at the HRT clinic over the phone. She seems to think that the tests are definitely positive and wants to get me into their clinic for a scan. So gonna get a call tomorrow to arrange that. But also going to see my GP so he knows whatís going on too.

Thank you everyone on here for being so supportive. I donít know what Iíd do without this forum sometimes!! X
