So earlier today I posted on a thread about some ladies not being able to look at anyone else pregnant and not be upset. I wrote a response but then decided to delete as I did not want to upset anyone, as every women journey is there own. I wanted to post it here, I feel like our little group is optimistic, and I wonder what you guys would think,
"I have to chime in here, I have been ttc for 3 years, had a MC of my first pregnancy. I have to say I cant be resentful of friend and family who are blessed with children. I am thankful that people who I care about will not encountered my struggle. I work with homeless individuals, and yes I do struggle with drug addicted or sex trade women get pregnant only to loose their "healthy" (amazingly) babies. But that is about it...I refuse to lose who I am in the plight of being a parent....that role does not distinguish who I am. I hope that I will get the chance to have a child of my own, and it does sadden be that it may not happen. I refuse not to live the life I love now because of my infertility."
I am seeing a lot of success stories. I will be starting my first round of femara 5mg as soon as AF arrives. After 7 rounds of clomid with no ovulation I am hoping femara will work for me I will be doing opks. Any advice would be appreciated. I have pcos and endo.
Let us know when you start and we will add you to our handy-dandy board
No ovulation at all with Chlomid? This is my second round of femara and so far I've ovulated on both cycles. Welcome!!
I was taking clomid cd 5-9 and estrace 3-7 I was all the way up to 150mg when my gyno referred me to my RE. I started metoformin 1000mg a day along with clomid 50 mg. I never had a follie bigger than 10. The next cycle I was on clomid estrace and gonal f. On cycle day 12 I had 1 17mm follie and did an hcg trigger but bfn. After that cycle I got a complex cyst and had to go on BC. In Sept 2011 I had a lap which discovered endo. A hysterscopy and chromotubation. My tubes were fine. This is our first month back on meds so hopefully femara works for us.
zadeebug - it's my belief that if clomid doesn't work for you, femara will work very well for you! Good luck with it!
iwantmyturn - the bleeding does sound suspicious but it might just be your hormones trying to figure out what to do. I had mid cycle spotting that I was never worried about ... and it only happened every blue moon during my super long cycles (pcos). My doc thought it might be polyps although nothing ever showed on u/s. I completely disregarded her suspicion and thought it was just crazy hormones on super long cycles. Well, turned out I had a bunch of nasty polyps. Not saying you have them, but it might be something worth looking into...???
MK - I totally agree with you. I've been dealing with my infertility for 14 years and I'd be one sour person if I let every pregnancy get to me. I feel that I can't begrudge others for doing exactly what I would do if I could. It is hard at times, but if you look deep enough, being childless (or having fewer children than we want/planned) has it's benefits too. I firmly believe we're all blessed in different ways and if we're not able to have our children when and how we want, we're compensated for that with other blessings. Just my opinion, but it's helped me get through years of pain.
mommyagain - I'm so sorry about your bfn! Could it be too early? When did you ovulate?
