I am coming back after a long time!!
My name is Stephanie I am 22yrs old and my DH is 24yrs old.
We had our first baby on September 21,2007 and he past away January 14,2008. On May of 2008 we started TTC, it has been 1yr and 2 months and we havent had any luck.
My cycles at one point were 30days and 3 months ago they went back to 28days. We tried charting, having intercourse on the O days, we have tried anything that you can think of without DR's and no luck. We decided to take a break in charting because it was getting very stressful, but I am going to begin again and we will see what happens.
In 3 months from now if we still have no luck we will go see a specialist to get some answers and if it turns out that having our little angel was a one time opportunity we are going to adopt.
I have to confess that the idea of maybe not being able to conceive again scares me and adopting scares me even more.
New member - STC, PCOS, now on clomid 1st cycle
I am not sure that this is write place for me to be posting but i just joined this website at the recommendation of my sister who used it when she was having miscarrages. That is not my issue, but I have been feeling really sad and overwhelmed and thought i should give this a chance.
I am 30 and have been diagnosed with PCOS since i was 17. I am atypical as I am thin with minimal hair growth, no blood glucose issues. I was married April 09 and we went off the pill feb 2010. in the beginning we weren't exactly trying just not full on trying. But by november of 2010 we were trying. My cycles can be long up to 30 - 50 days depending. Some months I just won't even get a positive ovulation at all. But I still wanted to see if I was going to be able to do this on my own. Negative...after getting incredibly frusted trying to figure out of the are going to ovulate between day 11 or 25 and trying to have sex around that time it gets pretty stressful. I finally went back to my dr in september and she said yup on the months that your cycle is > 33-35 days you probably don't have a viable egg released. My last ultrasound on this cycle performed on CD 12 showed my largest folical was 7mm way to small. my progesterone level was low on day 21 and I never got a positive ovulation. Plan is that I am going to wait until i get my period however long that takes, today I am cycle day 30 and start clomid on day 3 100 mg x 5 days. This will be my and my husbands first round with treatments. Just nervous and scared about this road ahead of us. I know I am young and have plenty of time. its nice to know that other people are going through the same things I am. any recommendations would be great! I am excited to be here.
TTC first round of clomid
I am 30 and hubby is 35.I have PCOS, high blood presure, and I tell you what I can grow a mustach,goati and a beard, lol,got to laugh at that when i kiss hubby on the back he unstands what the poking hairs feels like.
Anyway we been togther for 10 years and married for 7 come halloween. We never used protection and kept hoping for the best. Cause even when we were not trying, trying, it was still disappointing. We had his swimers checked and they were great, i knew it was me. Both are moms passes away 6 mth apart,I'm the oldest grandchild and the last to make a greatgrandchild. Hubby wants kids so bad it make my heart hurt. I feel like a failure as a wife for not being able to give him the family he longs to love.
We have finely said lets go to the doc and see what will happen on the 24th of last month. Doc put me on provera for 10 days, i start 3 days after that on CD5 I started 50mg clomid, on the 27th we went for the U/S and he found 2 follies( spelling bad) one was 17.3 and the other was 20.5. He say i should release this weekend, then the bloodwork on 4th to see if i did. I just don't know where to look, who to ask.
It really is alot of emoitions rolling around in a bucket, it seem you never know which one is going to pulled out or when.
Hoping all work out for everyone.
TTC for 8 months with background info on me...
Hello. I am new to the message boards. I thought this would be the best place to get help/advice for my issue. I will start with a bit of background info as you suggest.
I had been on BC since 1997, until recently (March 2011). Doctor took me off b/c I wanted to try and conceive. I have had multiple issues with BC throughout the last 16 years. They tell me it's b/c I had been on it for so long. I had to change pill types about 8 times and even tried Depo for a year. My periods had always been irregular. My last OB did exploratory surgery and found there was a great deal of scar tissue and a few cysts on my ovaries. He removed the cysts, but left the tissue. The surgery caused even more scar tissue. I had another surgery in 2010 to remove my appendix. The physician saw that I had a huge cyst, but neglected to get it taken care of at that time.
Jump to 2011: After coming off of BC, my first month was horrible. I stayed on for almost 20 days. At this point, my (new) OB decided to do a vaginal ultra sound. He was at a loss for words due to the amount of scarring that had taken place. At was extremely upset that earlier physicians had done nothing to correct the issues I was having. He immediately scheduled me for an HSG (think this is what it was called). Although the pain that comes with these is horrible, I survived. It showed good flow. He then scheduled me for another exploratory surgery. With this surgery, he cleaned up most of the scarring, removed a few cysts, and took my right tube. He wanted to take the left, but thought that it might have a chance.
Jump to now (Nov 2011): I now have BV infections every month. He says, "they are just bad luck". Everything should clear up. I am worried about further scarring due to these. I had only had a few in my lifetime, until now. I have been trying since surgery to get pregnant and have yet to do so. For the BV, I have taken 3 cycles of the meds for this with no end in sight. I am worried that I will not conceive ever.
I joined to get advice on everything I can and need to do, to try and conceive asap. I am now 32 years old and honestly don't want to get pregnant after next year.
Looking forward to everyone's help,
