Hi everyone I'm Chasity my husband Michael and I have been together for 6 years and have been married 3. We started trying right away as we both want to be parents after no success we decided to see a specialist and he started with the test ( previously had an hsg which showed left tube blocked) done an ultrasound to find I definitely had pcos 30 cyst on right 32 cyst on left then was put on metaformin 1 a day for a week with supper increase to 2 with meals then 3rd week 3 a day with meals and go back in 6 weeks and hopefully it helps if not then surgery :/ also on prometrium to induce af also had to cut out sweets and caffeine drinks because I might have diabetes they said still have hope though!!
Hey mel I have read similar stuff about gluten. I subscribe to the idea that most people have a gluten allergy to some extent. I am working on eliminating gluten and grain in general from our diet. I do occasionally eat rice or quinoa. I feel a lot better ans so does my hubby so I guess those are good enough reasons. I believe I found the research when looking up male factor infertility. Where we have a double whammy I figured it is worth the shot. Plus wheat seems to be the trigger to my blood sugar as even things like ice cream don't spike it that high.
ATM, nothing is happening. My period never came after my three weird days. I wonder if that was my period? I doubt it given my past ones. In other news it looks like we are moving in a few weeks so I am pretty excited. We will be moving into a cute little house which is way better than this apartment. And I have room for a garden.
Hi Ladies, it's been a little while since I've posted, but I wanted to wish everyone and good luck with their cycles!
Hippie - awesome job with the weight loss!!! That's really inspiring! Keep it up
Aein - how did your scan go today?!?
Baby - that's a bummer about missing your appt. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long to get another!
SweetMel - a friend of mine has Celiac disease and I know she manages it pretty easily through diet. Having said that, when she does eat gluten she bloats an unbelievable amount - it LITERALLY looks like she has a baby bump, but it goes away within 24 hours. I had no idea about the association with infertility (my friend does have 2 kids tho, so don't get too down, it is still possible!), but it is definitely something to ask your doc about!!
Krissie - congrats about buying a house!! That's so exciting!!
Bunny - any sign of af? Hopefully your ear and throat feel better soon!
Chasity - welcome to the thread Fx metformin will work well for you, both for ttc'ing as well as managing your blood sugar levels! Prometrium is an interesting choice to kick start af - I've only ever heard of Provera (medroxyprogesterone) being used for that. Prometrium is a different form of natural progesterone that is usually used to sustain a pregnancy / help correct a progesterone deficiency in your luteal phase). In my experience, the side effects of provera are much less than prometrium. Are you finding you're experiencing any side effects - if you are, you may wanna ask to switch to provera? Fx your cycle will regulate soon!!
Afm - I'm officially in the dreaded tww. I swear I'm the most impatient person ever!! My RE confirmed O through ultrasound on Wednesday, so I'm currently 3dpo. For those ladies who chart their bbt - I O'ed by Wednesday, but my temp didn't spike until Friday morning - have any of you had a late rising temp before? I have no idea why that would happen. I mentioned it my RE and she said not to worry about it, but it's just strange. I've also started my progesterone (vaginal) suppositories three time per day, which are kind gross and a pain in the butt, but a necessary evil I suppose. If it helps me get a bfp then I'm happy to do it!! Lol.
Krissie, woow good news and i felt buying new house may give you a new baby child too,
Jl, good luck dear with your journey... we are on same track sumhow
and for thw BBt, i heard that its not accurate many times and showed up Oing with 1-2 days difference, so your Dr is right you dun to worry about it and also we Ladies on Metformin.. our hormones level gets up down so very difficult to get accurate result many times
Afm - scna goes very dfine tdy
Right ovary Follicle - no change same as on CD11 5.3 x 4.9mm
Left Ovary Follicule - enlarged by 22.7 x 18.3 mm
endometrium thickness also increased from 8.1 to 10.5mm
so Dr was happy with the follicle size and scan showed no Ovulation occured till yet
,they also give me a shot of Pregnyl 5000mg, and dr said to do BDing tomorrow and come back for scan day after tomorrow...
this is quite a new thing for me Pregnyl... have to study about this now,.. any idea you Ladies give me ??
Welcome Chasity! Hope metformin helps and you don't need surgery. Keep us updated with your journey but I hope it's a short one and you get a lovely bfp!
Aein - Hopefully ovulation isn't far away now! Good luck! I've never heard of pregnyl, maybe one of the other ladies have.
JL - That's great that you've O'd!! How exciting! Tell us any symptoms you get good luck for a bfp!
Well today is cd41.. No af and bfn.. really upset. No cramps so af isn't even near. So disappointed as my first cycle was 27, 2nd cycle 41 and now my third is 41 and counting.. Oh and my ear is still blocked. Bleughh is how I feel Plus me and the other half aren't getting on so well. The past couple of weeks he's been funny with me and we've barely even dtd, its as if he doesnt even want to touch me or be near me, hardly speaks to me either. Just having a bad time I think!
