    I am on metformin and clomid family planner. I was having AF every cycle, even when not ovulating, til the last 2 months. I am on CD60?? grrrr I have just started provera, it brings on AF and then I will start clomid again. You reminded me I need to get my metformin!!! I did fall pregnant the first and second cycle on metformin on its own and I have 2 angel babies. I knew my lining was still too small so that is why I needed the clomid. Good luck hun!!!

    I am on blackmores conceive well gold...It smells disgusting but hasn't made me sick but I know that some ladies have had to change from one to the other as it made them sick!!
    Good luck ladies!!!

    It really sounds like you've been through a lot Funky Mummy and I congratulate you on staying so positive because I know, for me, reading your posts really gives me hope. I feel silly because right now I'm hoping for any kind of pregnancy even if it is an angel baby because I want to know that my body isn't completely flawed.

    Now that I have faced this speed hump on the road to conception I've looked up the road and seen that I may have to travel over many more speed humps before I actually reach my destination and it could take years so any hope that I can get from reading the success stories of others is good.

    no hunny, that really is not a silly way to think. I was told for 8 years I would never have a baby. I was not elligible for IVF or adoption due to my weight gain and tumour. I was shattered. I just quietly plodded along and losing weight for me was about fitting into an MRI machine and to be healthy. Even when AF started coming back every cycle I knew it didn't necessarily mean I was ovulating....but I was lol and I have Danny.
    I think until you have infertility like we experience you just want to know your body has a chance to work.....
    Don't get me wrong. I have had my sad and down days. I am blessed I have met some bewtiful ladies to help me get through. Having angel babies has made me more determined to see this through and hold my bubby in my arms safely at home with me.
    But you always need to have hope......It is that simple!!!! xoxox

    Hey ladies,


    I have been told about a week ago that I have PCOS. I found this out after an ultrasound. My Dr said there is nothing to worry about and didn't prescribe anything to me.
    I want another child and I am now scared that this is never going to happen for me. What do you think?
    Thanks.

    Did you tell the doctor that you were trying to conceive beaniebabez? I guess because you've already conceived once naturally then the doc wants to wait it out and see if you can go all natural again.

    How did the PCOS get diagnosed? I wasn't having periods at all so I'm clearly not ovulating. I think if you're not insulin resistant and you are ovulating then you may not need any medication. In the last couple of weeks of research, I have learnt that PCOS can affect different women in very different ways so it definitely depends upon your own individual case. I think because I am insulin resistant with a family history of type 2 diabetes, I need treatment regardless of whether I'm trying to conceive or not.

    Anyway keep us updated....

    Actually dreamt that I used a clear blue and first response pregnancy test last night and I was pregnant!! Wishful thinking or premonition? lol. Very disappointing when I woke up cos dreams always feel so real.

    beanie go back and ask for a CD21 progesterone test hun, you need to know if you are definately ovulating. I have been getting AF but not ovulating at all. I think it is irrisposible of a doctor to just let you go. It happened to me years ago and now I am determined these doctors are going to work for me!!! good luck hun!!

    Im not insulin resistant but czoz of my weight my FS has me on Metformin and it has helped weight melt of me!!!

    True Believer, don't worry you’re not alone!
    I self diagnosed myself through Google back in 1997 but wasn’t formally diagnosed until 4 years ago, 3 doctors later. Since then I've seen a wonderful naturopath & acupuncturist who have supported me more than ever. I am now equally as happy with my new fertility specialist so things are starting to align.

    The only advice I can give is that you are your own expert of your body. If you’re not getting the answers you need or things don’t feel right, you need keep searching until your find the right practitioner/specialist.
    Good luck on your journey!

    i was diagnosed with pcos about 2 1/2 years ago, but knew something wasn't right from the time i was about 15-16.

    DH and i are TTC (have been trying 'naturally' for 2 years) and are in the process of getting tests done to see a specialist.

    I have a DD who's 4 that was concieved naturally- although the doctors can't tell me how that is possible with the pcos.


    TTC with pcos is hell

    i know what you mean about being your own expert about your body. I have had 4 angel babies in my life, 2 of which were last year, 6 months apart. My previous "specialist" (i use the term loosely, he was a ******) and he said it was all in my head. He said this to a person he knew had a history of miscarriage and depression??? told my GP and he confirmed i was right.

    That was my final straw for the jerk. I see my new one tomorrow so fingers crossed.

    Oh, and good news, the elevit side effects have worn off! yay!
