2+ years TTC #1


Hi new here don't know if I should here or in longer term ttc. Sorry for a long post.

I am now 34 years old and hubby is 35. We been married almost 10 years and been actively ttc since Nov. 2015.

But my story start before that in May and June of 2015 when i had month long AFs. I went to a OBGYN and had a ultrasound done that came back okay along with all my level that they blood tested for. In Nov. I started using a digital OPK to time my ovulation since my AF has always been weird. I never got the Peak fertility. So in Dec. I decided to uses the simple (cheap) strips to test everyday to see of I got a positive for ovulation. I didn't... so after one more month of me not ovulating and having very light AF. I went to a new OBGYN since it was going take a month at my old one get a appt and I really didn't like how they treated me.

I was put on Progesterone 4 times starting in February to start my period and get my cycle to complete itself. Finally in cycle 8 of TTC my doctor ultrasound to looked at my ovaries to see that the left not active at all and the right only had a few follicles. Finally after seeing that my doctor put me on femara in cycles 9 of TTC.

So how it started.... in sept 2016 I had Sept 30th 2016. they found no blockage in either fulpian tubes. It did take longer for the dye to go through my right tube. So i am hoping it cleared up my tube. On Oct. 7th i got a peak on my clear blue ovulation test kit. This was my 1st every peak reading in the 12 cycles ttc and it was a cycle I didn't uses femara. I got a BFP but it was short lived as I had a early miscarriage. After it was finally told to ne that i have Pcos. Don't why the dr. Didn't tell me sooner. I was put on metformin and as of now I have lost 25 lbs. But to my story.

Skipped nov. 2016 and in dec 2016 and Jan. 2017 i did femara and hcg shot. Hubby was being a pain and not going to get SA done so i had discount treatments until Oct 2017. Had to finally but a over the counter sperm check kit which up low fertile so I had to wait 2 month to get him to get a SA done which came back great l. So Nov and Dec 2017 i took Clomid and had NO active follicle. Jan. 2018 i did femara 5mg for 8 day nothing happen too but my cycle went to 30 day.

And this cycles I am doing CD 2 to4 5 mg femara and 5 to I don't know when I am doing 75 iu of gonal f. Which I hope work for us becuse I don't know if I can pay for another round it expensive when you paying out of pocket.

I have gone with the mind set of being very positive that it will help and started knitting a baby blanket for my baby.

Sounds like you have had quite a journey! Stay strong and know that God has a plan! Your journey will be the beautiful story you tell your future children one day! I'm praying for you and praying for your future little miracle!!! Are you on a good diet for fertility?

Thank you so much
As to you question no I didn't go on a major fertility diet I really cut my carbs and started exercising more. And watching my portions so I didn't eat a ton. I wish I had looked into to a good diet but I don't really do great on them.

Doing really great did gonal f 75 iu from 5 to 9 and day 10 did 37.5 iu, on day 12 i had a Hcg trigger shot. Fertility friend put my crosshair at day 14. So happy it look like this will be a great cycle. On CD 18 i am doing bloodwork for my progestrone to make sure it in the correct range. Which i think is early but not complaining if my OB want to check early. And hope put me on it to make sure I have every chance to stay pregnant if I am.

Well got my result back from my OB my progestrone was 24.5 which they said is great and by the numbers I have ovulated. And to give them a call if I get bfp closer to my expected period date since I had a trigger shot.
