    I'm new, so I thought I'd share a little bit about myself and my journey so far... I'm 22 and I haven't ovulated normally since 3 years after I started my period at 13 years old... I was on Birth Control for almost 2 years when I came off it, and I got pregnant within two months (After some research I have now figured out that it was a surge of hormones from coming off of the BC that likely lead to me ovulating.) and had my daughter 9 months later. We started TTC #2 when she was 8 months old... and she is now 2. I've been back and forth to my Family Doctor and my OBGYN to rule out a multitude of things... My thyroid is fine, my hormones are completely normal, all my lady bits look perfectly fine (Aside from a thick uterine lining from lack of AF) on ultrasounds. We did recently find out that I'm insulin resistant (But I do not have PCOS) so my OBGYN but me on Metformin... I've been on Met for a few months now. I have had AF once since going on it, but still haven't ovulated by looking t my temps. I go back to my OBGYN soon to look at results of my most recent ultrasound and to, hopefully, start Clomid. If you've made it this far then thanks for reading! I'd love to hear your stories if you'd like to share. Good Luck and Baby Dust to everyone!

    Hey! I'm in a similar situation. I'm 23 years old and got pregnant with my daughter while I was on birth control 5 years ago and I dont ovulate but have some what normal periods. I dont have an insulin resistance or pcos. We have been trying almost 3 years and had an IuI with femara in May. Had to sit june out due to a cyst and I am currently waiting for my period to see if the cyst is gone. have you went to a specialist?

    Hi there,
    My story isn't very similar, but I'll share it anyway.

    I was ttc my first child at 24 and had unexplained infertility. Finally after 19 months and 4 IUIs I conceived my first child. He's now 8.

    My second and third children were conceived without assistance and in a normal time frame. They are now 6 and 2.

    I'm now 34 and have been ttc for 13 cycles. I have regular cycles and have timed intercorse well for the entire duration of ttc.

    So, back to the RE I go. I'm a little nervous because I'm older now and my biological clock is running out of batteries, lol! I'm not sure what the doc will recommend as I really don't want multiples. We'll see what she says I guess.

    Good luck.
