I married my dh June of 2001 and we decided we wanted kids pretty much right off the bat so I went off the pill in 9/2001. We were pretty laid back about it and just figured that the time wasn't right. So we continued NTNP until sometime in 2007. I finally went into the doctor and she said we needed to bd at least 1x every 3 days for a year before she would do anything. Nevermind I only had 1 period that year... So we did, and when we went back she had me go in for an ultrasound and diagnosed me with PCOS. She told me that since I was overweight she wouldn't refer me to an FS until I was at a healthy weight. So I spent 2.5 years loosing weight while ttc. I lost 95 lb and started to have more frequent cycles (still very irregular). So I went back to the doctor again. She advised me that since I had started to have periods more frequently 9 months ago that she wanted us to ttc for 3 more months. After the three months had elapsed I decided to hell with the doctor, I was done with fooling around. I referred myself to a reproductive endocrinologist. My first appointment was the worst, she looked at my ovaries and discussed my symptoms, she told me that most likely I had only ovulated 3 times in the last 10 years of ttc.
