My vit D was low too when i got tested last yr, but i hav been taking vitD supplement since then. I wonder if i should stop at some point or keep taking.

So far im taking; Fiber+Vitamin D3 gummies, Hair/Skin/Nail gummies, 1000 Folic Acid, 2000 Vitamin D and metformin

Im gonna add b complex and thinking of trying guaifenesin since i have no ewcm.

Hello ladies, mind if I join? I also have PCOS. I have a daughter who just turned 4 and I was pregnant again but lost my twins at 21 weeks a year ago (not PCOS related). I have had to use clomid to get pregnant both times. Luckily my body reacts really well to the clomid so I'm hoping the this time will be the same. I am not on metformin but do take inositol. I have a doctors appointment scheduled for May 13th and am hoping to start my first dose of clomid shortly after. The doctor would like to reduce my dose of clomid this time so that we can try to make sure that I do not get pregnant with twins again as they think my body just can't handle the pressure of a twin pregnancy. We only recently decided to start TTC again so I am just getting started again on my inositol and prenatal vitamins.

Golden - it was about 8 weeks of change to diet and exercise before i fell pregnant. I still ovulated late (day 35 or there abouts i think), but it helped! I did loose a little weight, but to be honest, I've got a small frame and didnt have much to shake, its just i was unhealthy.

I really wish i could remember what other supplements i was taking now. The only ones i remember for sure were a prenatal and royal jelly.

Hi Klabro, welcome. Glad to hear you have responded well to Clomid in the past and best of luck in the future. Sorry to hear about your loss, that must have been so hard. I hope things are stress free for you this time around

8 weeks, thats amazing. I have been on pcos diet for over 4 months and metformin for 2 months so i dont think its working for me. Clomid is my only hope

How was ur cm, if u remember? i never get ewcm so im thinking thats the problem.

For both of my pregnancies I was on 50mg of Clomid days 5-9. My doctor doesn't think I need the metformin. The inositol is just mostly for my own benefit because I do notice a difference on it. I don't have a lot of th bad PCOS symptoms but my hormones are definitely out of whack. I tend to hold my weight a little around the middle, but I'm not over weight. I do get breakouts but not that bad. Unfortunately we don't know the exact reason for my twin loss. Because I carried my daughter to term it makes the loss a little more complicated as far as figuring out what caused it. Could be cervical issues, could be just a "twin thing". So with my next pregnancy I will be getting a cerclage at 12 weeks and taking progesterone shots starting at 16 weeks. Just another stressful thing to add to the process. I've spent the last year trying to let both my body and heart heal from the loss. I was very noticeably pregnant when I had to deliver them and then my milk came in and my body just wasn't ready before now.

Sorry for being long winded, I am nervous out of my mind to start this process again. It doesn't matter that I've been pregnant before, the stress of "trying" always gets to me every time.

klabro, no worries hun we are here for you. TTC is nerv racking, especially with pcos.

My sister died when she was 6 months old because of fever, and then they decided to have me. Until this day, my mom never sleeps when we have fever. She said that she never forgets the moment when she found out my sister wasnt breathing, but having me after really helped her move on.

I hope your new bundle of joy will help ease ur pain

Also my doctor said i needed met because my LH:FSH ratio is too high and insulin causes LH to go up. Maybe u hav different hormones that were out of wack.
