    Hi ladies,

    I'm not coping well anymore.

    I've been ttc for nearly two years now, I was diagnosed with PCOS back in April and after a load of tests, was put on Clomid for 6 months. During this time, I've manage to relax and just think if it's gonna happen it will. I'm insulin resistant and have totally change my diet to low GI.

    I'm about to start my 5th round of Clomid as had no success. I'm on 50mg and I'm ovulating fine, some months I'm ovulating 2 eggs, but no bfp.

    I really don't know what to do after my 6 months is up.

    Any advise, experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    have you been keeping youur temps? how long is your LP? That is my problem as i have just recently found out. So although I ovulate, there isn't enough time for the wee bean to get sticky.

    Have you tried getting some high dose (50 - 100mg) vitamin b pills?

    Good luck honey

    I used to do temp, but became obsessed, so stopped. I use OPKs and track my CM. My LP is around 16 days.

    What does vitamin B do?

    How long is your LP?

    Thanks

    I did my full 12 months of Clomid and now have moved onto IUI. I have PCOS as well as had 2 LEEPS so the scar tissue is preventing DH :spermy: not being able to pass my Cervix. Also with the 2 leeps they took a large part of my CM glands, so I am very dry. I am 8 dpIUI and anxiously awaiting my beta test. Had my progesterone test yesterday and it was a lil low, so got put on suppositories. GL to you and lots o sticky baby :dust:

    Hey. Last week I was back at my FS after finishing six clomid rounds with no success. He has put me on the waiting list for injections and told m to continue with the clomid until I get them. (I don't have cycles on my own but do with the clomd so this will optimise our chances whilst waiting for the next step rather than doing nothing.)

    Not sure if your doc will do the same but it can't hurt To share. LOL. x

    That pisses me off completely. Yes we are all young at some stage but how long before we are old? I started trying when I was 21 and I am 25 now. Still young bu there is a nine month waiting list for the next treatment, I have to be on that for six months and then IVF which is a 12 month waiting list which will put me at 27 and 3 month before my initial appointment then start 3 month late. Not quite so young then. Saying "it will happen when it's time" is a kick in the teeth. We start TTC when it's time. It's not happening because there is an issue and it needs resolving. Shit thing is, unless you are over 22 in most areas (UK), they won't do a damn thing about it. Sucks to be us. Lol.
