It's been awhile....
just needed some time to clear my head.
Here is my story. First I want to say I am sorry that we all have PCOS, but thankful that we have each other and can support one another.
I am Natalie 27 DH is 35. We have been married for almost 6 years and TTC for 2 years 3 months. I have never had regular AF so I was put on BC at 16 and took it for 9 years. After coming off of BC I noticed some crazy changes with my body. I never got my period....this really messed with me because somehow I thought I was pg every month. My face broke out-worse than when i was going through puberty.. I even got pimples on my back which was new for me. My face was EXTREMELY oily which was also very strange because at the time I was living in Colorado and had always had dry skin. I also felt like if I didn't eat every couple of hours I was going to pass out.
I went to my gyn and they did blood work and diagnosed me with PCOS. I am a twin and I don't know if this is true, but he told me it is more common in twins. My twin is a boy. They started me on Metformin, but I had terrible stomach issues and with the work I do (I assist surgical procedures) I couldn't have this. They switched me to clomid 50mg CD 5-9. The first month my temps were "textbook". The second not so good and the third was no good. At this point we had been ttc for a year. My doc put me on 100mg and then I moved to Arkansas. At this point I thought I wouldn't get pg especially since it was a stressful time with moving. In Aug. 07 I got a BFP. I was in complete shock...good shock. Now I had to find a new Gyn and go through my history. I went on to m/c end of Sept. It was a really hard time for me.
My doc said I would need to wait 2 cycles before ttc....well that took forever since I have never ovulated without clomid. So I had a really couple of cycles which they gave me progesterone so AF would come. Then I moved again to TX and went back to my gyn that I went to when growing up. He wanted to start me on Metformin again and gradually increase my dose. I now take 2000mg daily and tolerate it pretty well with some dietary changes. I have been taking clomid 50mg CD 4-8. This has been since January and still no BFP. I haven't been taking my temp, but I have been using OPK's. Last month I didn't have a surge so I guess I will need to go up on my clomid. I am taking a couple months off though because I won't be with DH due to his work schedule. I think this will be good for me emotionally and physically.
Sorry for my rambling, but I wanted to give my story and I appreciate any advice you have.
