@Tcinks well that's pretty good it sounds a lot harder then it is. at least now you know what u need to do which is great. My last RE discovered a fibroid but like you said they say its nothing to worry about. I know its normal to get them and I don't think it stops you from getting pregnant. Are you going to track O this month?

Yeah, I have quite a few of them though, and I think since all the pregnancies and hormones, some of them have grown. :/ It probably isn't a huge deal, but if there is a way I can get rid of them, that would definitely make me feel better!

I've never used opks before but I got some to try this next cycle.

Iloveme- only doing the HSG if the Clomid trial fails. Last months CD21 had my progesterone at 6.4 which the gyn used to justify the pcos diagnosis. He is adamant that he has had good results on Clomid and would rather try that first. He isn't convinced it's scar tissue. It's all a waiting game now. I only started temping this month so can't prove whether I have in fact been O-ing or not monthly. I have had +OPK for the past 3 months but this was the same month where I got the cd21 results which said I didn't O so can't rely on that.

I'm willing to give this a go for now just in case it is all just pcos related. DH has agreed to go for SA if this months CD21 show I did O and we don't get pregnant so that's another step in the right direction as well

How are things going your side? And with all the other ladies on this group?

@tcinks I know you would feel a lot better knowing there gone. what opk do you plan on using?. With my abnormal cycles I have no clue when I O. But I do know the pains it feels like pressure and pulling in my lower abdomen which I don't get every month since im anovulatory.

@Aphy Its just the waiting game. Ive heard good things about Clomid, for some reason it doesn't work on me I had to use femara. And also within those 6 don't be surprised it is possible for you to get your BFP. are you taking any other meds or vitamins?

AFM still waiting to start again I will see me hematologist today and pray he tells me I will be okay to TTC right away with baby aspirin and heparin shots. I asked my RE if I would be able to try naturally, she says no she doesn't want to go backwards it looks like I may have to do IUI again.

Iloveme,
Thanks. It feels like a bit of a no mans land, 6-12 months. Long enough to get impatient and wonder what's going on (especially having PCOS) but not long enough in doctor speak to be of concern.

I saw my rheumatologist before I started trying. All my joints and other organs and symptoms etc, all looked fine so he gave me the go ahead. I had to get retested for all the different clotting things all they all came back normal/fine. So I didn't have to see anyone. The rheumatologist said I could have a trial at coming off my lupus medication (which I'd actually already started a few months earlier) and was coping ok (it's called Plaquenil if they think you might have Lupus, you'll get put on that first). He said 6 monthly liver and kidney check ups with my GP and any flares to go on a short course of prednisone or get my GP to ring him.

Last cycle I got a BFP so I went to my GP. He rung the OB/GYN on call at the hospital and I was told I needed 4 weekly scans after 26(I think) weeks and to start aspirin, even though I don't have APS. I ended up starting to bleed 2 days later and lost the pregnancy. But I'll be following that if/when I get pregnant again.


Are you coping ok with 2000mg of Metformin a day? I've just got up to 1000mg a day. The fertility specialist I saw last month said Metformin doesn't help at all (contrary to everything I read, but whatever).

Frustrating about the bleeding and not knowing if it's AF or not. And good that your tubes are clear, although an easy fix would have been ideal. Hopefully the IUIs will do the trick.

Let us know how you get on at your appointment!

@Deaucemom Yes my dad it was even worse. I don't even bother lol, mommy it is when talking about this stuff. My cycles are hard to keep up with as well, unless ive taen meds to regulate my cycle. I was only put on Metformin, and I take a multi-vitamin "Geritol".

According to my RE or my GYN having PCOS alone is enough to see a specialist when TTC. And don't be afraid to say you have been trying longer than you have just to jump start things.
Im a little confused you started the aspirin at 26 weeks?
and Metformin does help, in fact it regulates my AF. And it helps women who have PCOS because we are insulin resistant. Maybe you should see a new RE or a second opinion. Good Luck to you.

I do quite well with the Metformin, im also losing weight with it. I take it only after I eat so my stomach wont ache.
