You are very lucky to get Clomid at first app. I had my 1st app in Dec2011 and 4mths later im still waiting to start the Clomid xx
im sorry to hear that...it sucks
do you know why they have taken so long in getting you started on it? are they running other tests first? i think they normally want to understand why you are not ovulating before they will do anything about it..and i was diagnosed with pcos about 8 months now...so no need to do anymore tests.
Day 1 of Provera for me today. So far no side effects Got my AMH test results today - apparently I have a really high egg count number - anyone else had this too? Apparently it's fairly common for PCOSers.
Well i am back from my first fs appointment - was real.y happy with the doctor I got. Have been put on metformin and am doing a tracking cycle to see if am ovulating if not I will be given clomid to get things going.
She said everything is looking really good and my gp was wrong to tell me I have pcos as I quite clearly don't have it. So I guess time will tell.
matilda - glad you dont have any side effects...i always seemed to feel awful on provera....hot flashes, felt sick...everything! hope it stays that way for you!! im not too sure on the egg count...but thats a good thing i assume? ive never had mine checked, so will assume all is ok until otherwise my clomid is going ok, have finished the course but had NO side effects at all, so not really holding out much hope that its worked...i know that not everyone gets side effects, but still. i have my scan in the morning to see whether it has done anything though, so will update you on that tomorrow!
twinklebub - im so glad your appointment went well. good luck with the metformin! sucks about being told so many different things though...out of interest, why did your gp decide that you did have pcos, and how has she said you dont? very strange. surely its going to be obvious whether or not you do, because of the tests...i assume that they did tests?? bizarre! happy youre getting sorted, though!

My gp said that my testosterone was high but the ultra sound showd no evidence of it so it had to be pcos, when the fs said I don't I questioned it and she said there's nothing on my overiers and that the testerone level is normal but my free testosterone one level is ment to be high was low and the other was the opposite and apparently it's cause I need to loose some weight not because of pcos. Have just started our for cycle of TIC so very exciting
