so should I keep doing this?
I was on femara and progesterone for 5 days to boost the whole progesterone deal and then was told to take metformin about 2 mths ago. I had an HSG done and nothing seems to be wrong so I got pissed and quit taking everything cus I was fed up. I know bad attitude:( , I dont have PCOS but they were treating it like I did.:headbang: so i dont get it, should i keep taking metformin till I get a BFP??
NEW to the group! Happy to B here!
I am new to the group. I found this after doing some research on Femara. I was recently dx with PCOS:indifferent: Here's a "little" about me.
I hope that you like to read books because I like to write them. My DH and I have been married for almost 10 years. We have known each other almost all of our lives. We dated after we graduated from high school. We got married and 6 months after that we started TTC. I came off of BCP and didn't have a AF for 4 months. I went to my GYN and he put me on Provera. I had an AF in April, 1 in May and POW was PG in June.
Everything seemed to be running smooth. I was 16 wks and had the AFP test done. It came back positive for DS. I had an amino and everything came back normal. At 20wks I had an u/s that showed that my son had severe Hydocephalus (extra fluid on the brain). My dr sent me to a specialist and he said that there was nothing to do but wait, or have an abortion. With that out of the question... I started doing research day and night. A friend of my mom's told me about a website that had info about fetal surgery. I went to it and emailed a doctor that preforms surgery on babies inutero in Nashville Tn. To make a very long story short. I was choosen to go to Nashville to have tests run to see if we were able to have surgery.
After a few days of tests, we were able to have surgery. Tyler was the 2nd baby to ever have this type of surgery done! They put a shunt in his brain to drain the excess fluid off of his brain. Again, long story short....
A miracle happened that day. In the days to come, the surgery had worked. The fluid levels were starting to come down. Things were looking good. Until.. I had a clot in my placenta and was in labor. Tyler was born at 27wks gest. He weighed 2lbs 0oz. He was in the NICU for 5 1/2 months. After 13 surgeries, he finally got to come home. Today Tyler is 7 1/2. He is considered medically fragile. He has lung disease, Addison's Disease (adrenal disorder), seizures, mild CP and hydrocephalus. Tyler has had 29 surgeries ( I could list them all, but we would be here all night) Tyler is truly a miracle. I wouldn't trade him for anything. I guess you could say that I am the only person that you will meet that has had 2 c-sections within a week of each other.... yes that was fun. But at least it has made me a really strong woman!
After all of that said.... My DH and I started to think about having another baby. 2 years ago both of my bestfriends were pg and the same time. It was very hard for me. I long for a baby soooo bad. So we figured we were both on the same tune. In the past either I was ready and he wasn't or just the oposite. We are finally on the same tune and we have had 0 success.
We have been trying for 1 1/2 years. I was recently dx with PCOS. I had the battery of blood work and u/s. My new GYN told me that I have the "curse of the black pearls." He is so funny....
He put me on Metformin 2000mg/day. My insulin test showed that my fasting insulin level was 24. Which isn't horrible, but at least he could put me on something to help.
My DH and I have been on the South Beach Diet since Jan and I have lost 32lbs. I have kind of hit a wall with it though. I just can't seem to loose anymore.
My dr also put me on Prometirum-200mg X10 days. I got my AF on Tuesday. I was so excited until Wednesday. I started hurting so bad I almost was in tears. I have never hurt that bad. By Thurs I was flooding so bad that from Wed to Thurs I used a WHOLE box of tampons! I went back to the doctor on Friday to make sure that my hemoglobin and bp were ok. Thank GOD they were.
I was supposed to start my first round of Femara 2.5mg days 5-9, but because of all of the blood we figured it wasn't a good idea!
Hopefully next month I will have an AF and won't have to take Prometrium and I can start Femara. I am so excited. I just have to keep knowing that this is part of GOD's plan!
I hope you haven't gotten too bored reading this! Have a great week!
