Wow Nickilee, 5 years is a long time not to have a period! The longest I ever had was 6months and that was when I was diagnosed pco. I have never been overweight with the pco so the Dr that diagnosed me was a little baffled I had it. I was on the pill as a teenager and it was awful. I stopped itaafter a few months. From what I understand with pco it is an estrogen dominant condition so adding more estrogen is not good. They say one of the better hormones to give is progesterone. I am speculating that this is my biggest problem, progesterone deficiency.
Perhaps the weightloss and medications are helping to normalise your cycles? Would be interesting to see what the Dr says....
I did a detox and started exercising alot more at the beginning of the year then had my shortest cycle ever, 21days then that is when ivf epu started. I was feeling the best I had in years and wonder if that gave me good quality eggs. The cycle after that was 24 days long. My cycles had normalised over the past few years to 35days. Going on the clomid mid last year when ttc naturally seemed to make my cycles more regular. I was very stressed and unhappy at the beginning of last year and had a cycle length of 3 months. Blood test showed I didn't ovulate and my prolactin was very high. I am very happy that my recent bt showed all of that was normal.
Oh the joys of pco!!!
I am off to get my progesterone bt this morning and we will see if transfer is going ahead by the end of the day I guess.
Good luck to all the ladies with the next cycle. I hope this is the month foruus all!
