    Thank you both!

    rebecca- That has to be pretty exciting!! I can't say that I would know what they would do as I had to play under the radar of my insurance lol All my treatment had to be labled as pcos ;)
    But I have heard that they usually start with an ultrasound and full labs then consider what options you haven't tried yet for ttc, like clomid femara, trigger shots etc...
    As I said, I have no idea what really happens but this might give you a clue. Hopefully they get things going ASAP!

    Hey ladies. Hope you don't mind me dropping in.
    Myself and another b&b'er have been experimenting with spearmint tea. Apparently it lowers testosterone, which is often very high in ladies with PCOS. We've both had great results with it - no BFPs yet but ovulating is a start! Anyhow we have a little group for anyone who might want to try out the benefits of Spearmint tea!

    Hope you don't mind me intruding x

    Thank you! :) I've had a scan, but they'll probably give me another one.

    Where can we get the spearmint tea from? Do places like Tesco do it? X

    hopeful- That is lucky! I hear so often of babies who have a hard time sleeling at night. Though I had been reading up that they just need some company and that is the main reason why they cry.

    Laura and rebecca- I picked some spearmint tea up as well :)
    I haven't tried it yet though.

    Anyways, sorry for the very long delay in response.
    I ended uo miscarrying at 5 weeks and have been battling how I feel about it. Part of me wants to mourn it, part of me is pissed off, part of me knew it would happen so isn't surprised, part of me thinks it's silly to get too sad over it since it was so early and part of me thinks it is terrible not to remember my first baby (despite the scientific term for its gestational age) and I feel bad about wanting to try again so soon after.
    I also don't want it to happen again :/
    So basically I haven't had much energy to do a lot of talking.

    BAB - so sorry to hear about your loss. It can take a while for you to get your head around these things and to feel OK about moving on.

    Give yourself the time you need to get your head around things and feel comfortable again. Don't try to rush things because you think you should.

    Sending hugs xx

    Have PCOS (obviously).
    Been trying (with help now) 1 full cycle, in the 2nd now.
    I'm only on metformin & prenatals.
    I get to call next week and set up my appointment to get clomid!

    Unfortunately, I took DEPO at one point, and that seems to also be working against me. ):

    Hi Kerry & Mar!
    Welcome to the group :)

    Kerry- does your doctor not feel comfortable prescribing clomid or femara? I would suggest trying these first before seaking a specialist. It is much cheaper and why not save money when you can so that you can spend it on baby stuff when that bfp comes?

    mar- Glad to hear that your doctor is getting you on clomid! Did he/she say what dose you will be started on?
    How long ago did you receive the depo shot? I heard it should only affect you for a year or two..?
    I have also heard of pcos women receiving the opposite effect and wind up getting pregnant! :)

    Hey everyone! I don't know if you remember me but I just wanted to see how everyone is doing. My twins are doing great! They are almost 17 months now. Ethan had his cleft lip surgery at 3 months old and his open heart surgery at 9 months. Now he is an energetic little boy who gets into everything and loves to growl like a dinosaur. Emma is still our little diva and loves to dance to any music that comes on.

    Ghin- I remember you!! I didn't know about Ethan's cleft lip and heart complications... I am super glad to hear that he is doing great though and that you were able to get it taken care of!
    And of course I am happy to hear that Emma is doing so good as well! :3
    Now that we know how your munchkins are, how have YOU been?
