(cross posted in Health and Healing in "The Adrenal Fatigue" thread, but I thought I'd try it here as well)

HELP!

My naturopath diagnosed me w/ adrenal fatigue (mild) and had me taking pregnenolone and dhea drops as well as adrenal support supplements and some other minerals. I started taking them in early January.

Well, my period was due around Jan 26 and never came. I assumed the treatment was interfering with my cycle, especially since dh and I only dtd one time, within about a day or two of the end of my last period. But I just took a pregnancy test and it showed up positive!

Is there any chance the hormones I'm taking caused a false positive? I did stop taking them a little more than a week ago because I was hoping my period would resume if I laid off them a bit.

I'm going to call my naturopath tomorrow . . . but I'm kind of freaking out!

I think you're pregnant. Unless whatever you're taking can mimic hcG, which I'm pretty positive it can't, I think you're pregnant.

Aww, thanks. You're the first to congratulate me!

Well, this was unexpected, and I know it will take time to sink in. But we wanted more children . . . so I guess we're getting our wish!
