I was diagnosed with lean PCOS at 21 and went on BCP for 10 years. Went off BCP and did a whole bunch of testing to see what hormone levels were off but found everything was within "Normal range". I ovulate irregularly. I can go 120 ish days between ovulations. Or sometimes it's just the normal 14 days.
After a year of frustrated trying... not know when or IF I will ovulate... we went on 50mg clomid. Had one helluva ovulation from both ovaries and fell pregnant immediately!
The weirdest thing about my cycle was, that I didnt have any EWCM at all, and DH and I didnt use any lube to boost his swimmers, I didnt really feel any ovulation pains (I little bit on 2 days) - I didnt even wanted to count myself in the TWW, I had just written the cycle off, until AF didnt show I only started getting some symptons now after I got my +test results
I was diagnosed with PCOS age 24 in 2010. I have no other symptoms apart from irregular ovulation/absent periods. My first baby was conceived after 15 months TTC, on my 6th cycle of Clomid (4th of 150mg). I didn't ovulate at all on 50mg and reallllllly late on 100mg.
TTC this baby was much quicker. I tried 5mg of Femara and ovulated but late and it was a BFN. Then I tried 7.5mg and bang! Pregnant with #2. I much preferred Femara to Clomid as there were pretty much no side effects.
When I got pregnant the first time, my midwife told me that now that I was pregnant, everything should go smoothly. She was right! I had a completely uncomplicated pregnancy. The same is true so far for this one too, I am 10 weeks and everything has been normal so far (saw the heartbeat on a scan at 7 weeks).
Yay thanks for making this thread even though I'm almost ready to graduate to the second trimester boards. Nita, you know my story. But we were TTC 1# for over a year. Based on my charts it looked like I was ovulating but I wasn't. I knew I had PCOS but I was told there would be no issues because I was lean. My GP put me on metformin and I conceived but miscarried at 5w2d. Then we got in with an RE and at the first appointment got prescribed 50mg of Clomid. That didn't working so I went up to 100mg and conceived on my second cycle of 100mg. Just one baby and I can't wait to find out if it's a little girl or boy!!
Diagnosed with PCOS when I was in my earlier 20's. I do not ovulate on my own at all. I was really worried that I would need something stronger than Clomid. January was our first month on it at 50 MG. I never got a positive ovulation test, never had ovulation pains/spotting....any symptoms. I got a negative test on CD 32 (February 9) so I counted myself out. On CD 35 (February 12) I got out of the shower crying, telling my husband I know he won't visit my grave when I'm dead.
What the hell?
CD 36 I tested before work and sure enough, light positive. Confirmed at dr same day. They couldn't see anything on ultrasound that day but are now able to see a yolk sac. Hopefully a baby this week!
I really, really counted myself out. I figured there was no way I was pregnant and had even started taking the Provera again. Thankfully, that is not harmful. I was really worried I was going to miscarry but my dr. told me babies LOVE progesterone so it wasn't bad at all. Phew!
Love hearing all of these success stories. Fertility problems are HARD! Just got my BFP after a round of 100mg of clomid. Both times I've been pregnant I tried one month at 50mg with no O then upped it to 100mg and got a BFP. This time I didn't O until Day22ish so I thought for sure I was out but got my BFP at 12dpo and a lovely beta of 78 today at 13dpo DS is 19 months right now so I think the age gap will be decent!
Question for you lovelies that might know, does HCG levels indicate multiples at all? If so, I think I'm safe because 78 sounds normal for 13dpo right? There's always a little fear of multiples with Clomid
I want to join!!!! This was my first clomid cycle. I ovulate on my own but extremely early like day 9/10. Last year I had 3 miscarriages so I'm hopeful the boost from clomid was what I needed. This was our 7th cycle post my last loss.
Sweet pea, apparently they can indicate if you're carrying multiples but not necessarily very accurate. Some women have high levels and have singles and others have low with multiples. But generally higher levels can mean multiples. I think mine was 67 on 12 DPO and 320 on 15 DPO and have 1 baby. There are charts online where you can see if your levels are in the normal range for DPO and single/multiple births.
