    Hi Ladies..
    I am very new to this forum thing but wanted to talk to people who are going through the same thing as me.
    I got diagnoised with POC - apparently I don't have the Syndrome just Polycistic Ovaries (not even sure what that means), in March/April this year.
    I was then put on Metformin which did nothing to bring on AF. I then finally got AF a day before my Gyno/OB appointment. At the appointment I was told to start Clomid.. which I was a little hesitant about because I didn't want multiples.
    I have been on Clomid now for 3 sessions, first time I didn't ovulate, second time I did but a week later than normal folk, so I have like a 36 week cyle, and the third time i'm not really sure as I didn't have any follow up blood work.
    I am now 3 weeks late and have taken home pregnancy tests and done a blood test, which have all come back negative.
    I have been also going to accupunture but stopped this when I thought I was preggers, but now that that is obviously not the case I have gone back to help get AF back.
    I am not in a really good place atm, because I just want a baby soo badly, and it just isn't happening. I know there are alot of you in the same boat.
    I am feeling very frustrated.
    Can anyone give me some pointers on things that I can do to help me get AF back.. any other advise is much appreciated as my hubby just doesn't understand the immense presure that is on me, and me alone to get pregnant.

    Yay!! Good to have someone to share this cycle with, both shootingstar & 21andtrying!! Babydust to all of us.

    Welcome MrzP! You will find lots of support here.
    Not sure what other natural remedies you can try, but my dr put me on Provera initially to bring on AF as I had not had AF (or ovulated) for at least 120days. Clomid did not work at all for me, did not stimulate any follicle growth, let alone ovulation! I'm now on FSH injections (Gonal f) to grow a follie, then pregnyl injection to trigger ovulation. Because this makes me ovulate then AF mostly arrives on her own just a bit late sometimes, sometimes early (not enough progesterone), so I don't take Provera any more fingers crossed.

    Are you seeing a GP, gyno or fertility specialist?

    It is a tough journey, but I wish you a quick journey!

    Welcome MrzP.

    I know this is a common complaint but I can't help it cos I'm so frustrated. DH knows that it's BD time of the month but he's just not putting the effort in. I have to take the damn clomid. I'm the one temping every morning. I'm the one doing OPKs every day. I have to deal with the mood swings, fatigue, nausea!!! All he has to do is BD!!!! How freakin hard is that!!!

    Sorry rant over....

    Oh FP! I'm glad it's not just me, not that I wish it on anyone.

    It's so frustrating when we're drugged to the hilt and get poked and prodded all the time, all the mood swings, bloating, headaches etc. And DH complains that the TTC is tough or stressful, and complains about the pressure to DTD.

    My DH is also severely lacking interest in DTD this cycle, last cycle also. Seems ages since we DTD.

    I found that was the case on our last cycle of Clomid, as well, girls. So we kind of went back to basics and we instituted a thing where we made the first ten minutes when we got home from work "cuddle time", where we just curled up and hugged so we were physically connecting without the pressure to DTD.

    The other thing we did was make it a priority to DTD more often, full stop. That wasn't a big issue with us generally (the first two cycles of Clomid we did the hardest thing was sticking to ONLY every other day!) but when you're stressed and god knows we're all up to our ears in hormones no one is feeling very sexy. And it CAN be galling for our partners to feel like in the months we're cycling the only time we go near them is to DTD on command. I know that started happening with us and we were quite....driven... before we started fertility treatments (I'm trying to be delicate here, but let's just say we're newlyweds and generally act like newlyweds?)

    It is WAY harder for us and I know we all know that, but our boys may not, or they'll forget when it's convenient.

    I guess we tried not to make it ONLY about DTD at the time we were meant to, and trying to make it fun again. Which is easier said than done when you're bloated and cranky and can't be bothered (At least, that's how I feel)

    I wouldn't feel bad about ranting, I think we're all going there!

    Oh, as for me, I'm not on DAY 30 of Puregon injections, and I'm on 200 iu. I'm just at a point now where I'm doing what they tell me and not worrying about it. What will be will be, and I'm just trying to find a non-bruised piece of stomach to inject!

    We've only been married for just over a year but we've been together for 8 years so I guess we got over the newly wed phase pretty quick.

    I don't mean to put pressure on him. All I want is for him to keep it in the back of his mind that it is important to BD at certain times and be proactive about getting in the mood for it. I know I don't always feel like it but if you have the right mind set, you can turn that around pretty quick so long as your partner is keen as well.

    Oh well hopefully we can talk it out today. I told him how I felt last night and he just went straight to bed and slept like a baby. I don't know how he does it. I couldn't sleep for hours afterwards.

    So I just figured out that I have around 4 months to get pregnant if I want to breast feed my baby for at least a little while (4-6 months) then I have to go back on all my arthritis drugs all the will kick me off them its rather a lot of pressure. Hopefully the dr will give me some drugs today to get things going and I get preg soon. Fx

    FamilyPlanner I hope you're DH got the message, despite going straight to sleep! Maybe he'll surprise you and just start taking more of an interest.

    Kedgie, I hear what you're saying and we're pretty much the same, I definitely don't pressure my DH to DTD on command, but we both know when we 'need' to do it for timing. But I don't want that to be our only activity for the month iykwim I want to maintain DTD at other times too just because we like to, and then it also removes some of the focus from the 'timed' ones. Good luck with the rest of your injections!

    Just a quick update from me, had a scan this morning which revealed 3 x growing follies! 2 are on the left, with the largest one just over 18mm and 1 is on the right at about 12mm! This is a first for me, to have 3 large'ish follies, so I'm really hoping its a good sign . I do another FSH injection tonight then go back to FS in the morning for the Pregnyl trigger injection
    DH better be ready, because now's the time and I want to make sure we make the most of this cycle, it's already starting really well. HPT would be on 21st December (or a little before).

    So I went to see my gyno again today to get the results of my blood tests, turns out I'm not ovulating, so she gave me clomid, yay. She also gave me primolut to take to bring on af, I'm not sure when to star taking it, I'm on cd10 now so when can I start taking it?

    When I first went to FS he gave me Provera to bring on AF, I took it straight away, but I was up to CD120 or something like that with no period, so that may have been different. Can you ring the dr's clinic and get them to check with the dr?
