I had my LH injection Tuesday evening (then timed intercourse) so am on my 2ww at the mo my question is, as i dont make hormones such as FSH, LH, estrogen and Progesterone (amongst others) due to my pituitary gland not sending the message will i make the hormones for a HPT? What i mean is does your pituitary gland make this hormone or is it made by the developing embryo by itself? Also will the corpus lutum (spelt wrong sorry)  ^idiot^ ^idiot^ make the progesterone or is this down to the pituitary gland?

This is all very confusing sorry but im worried that as my pituatry gland does nothing that no hormones will be made :-\ :-\

Hi KT22,

I'm no expert by any means but I think its the embryo that creates the HCG hormone and this is what HPTs test for.  The production of HCG by the embryo keeps the corpus luteum producing progesterone thereby sustaining the pregnancy.  Hopefully somebody more expert than me will come along and confirm or correct!

Good luck with the 2ww.
