night sweats? Anyone else? Ghost?

Postby leorira11 » Thu Dec 15, 2011 11:14 pm

The last week or so, I've been sweating through my pajamas every night - which means I wake up in the morning FREEZING cold and needing to shower (which is a pain, because we rely on solar power to heat our water, and often I don't have hot water early in the morning).

I decided to ask "Dr. Google" before calling my GP. What I found is that night sweating isn't a sign of anything serious - just an annoyance. The most common causes are menopause and prescription drugs. I do take prescription anti-depressants, but I've been on the same drug/dosage for about 3 years and NEVER had night sweating issues before.

I didn't see "miscarriage" as a common cause, but I'm thinking that maybe my drop in estrogen (after a chemical pregnancy after a FET using oral estrogen medication) could be causing the night sweats (the same way that menopause does). Am I nuts? I've never had this issue after my other losses or BFN cycles.

My bedroom isn't too warm, I'm using the same PJs and blankets as usual, no hot baths/foods before bed.

This is annoying as h*ll! Any advice? Anyone else have this issue? Should I talk to my GP? To my RE?

(no way this could affect my upcoming fresh IVF/ICSI cycle, right?)

I really have no idea. Ask your RE. If it is caused by an estrogen drop, I suppose they could put you on an estrogen priming protocol to prep for your stim cycle, and that would put an end to it.

Leora, I had night sweats, too. During my cycles. Usually when the hormone levels are changing. I don't remember any more if it is when they are going up or down.its been so many cycles :) but I definitely had night sweats a number of times last 2 years. They last for a few weeks and then go away.
