    Hi there everyone,

    I am drifting in the same TTC & PCOS boat as Chunkydunks. I went off the pill 7 years ago to try for our 1st baby. We are still waiting anxiously
    I constantly feel like everything is my fault due to my steady weight gain and multiple issues with fertility. After stopping the pill, I failed to get a period so took Clomid & Metformin which helped me to regulate again. In 2008, I discovered I was pregnant... only to suffer a miscarriage 6 weeks later.

    After another 12 months of nothing happening we tried IVF. Instead of jumping straight in the deep end we did 2 cycles of IUI which did not work. I then went through a proper IVF cycle and had 11 eggs removed with only 1 fertilising. Blood tests later revealed this did not result in pregnancy. After the failed attempt, I chose to give my mind & body a break, as it was taking it's toll on me emotionally and mentally.
    In the past 6 mths, I've since been diagnosed with Menorrhagia -
    Why Why Why - I ask myself this all the time and feel guilty that I'm the one stopping us from having children of our own.

    I've been on Provera to stop excess bleeding and after consulting another specialist today have found out having another D&C is only a band-aid solution. (I had one in Jan 2014 after bleeding non stop for 3 months).

    So after a very long and emotionally draining 7 years, I've been advised to start taking the pill & Metformin AGAIN until I'm ready to commence IVF. This time though we'll be doing ICSI cycle as my egg follicles have a thick cumulus surrounding them which explains why they can't fertilise naturally.

    I'm over it and wish there was a quick fix to make everything ok. I know I'm not alone and there's others out there worse off than me but at the end of the day I'm on this ****ty TTC & PCOS rollercoaster and hate every bit of it. I feel like the last 7 years has been a complete waste and I'm back at square one.

    My TTC cycle looks something like this plus endless blood tests & ultrasounds: Pill>Clomid>Metformin>Clexane>HyCoSy>IUI>IVF>Prove ra>Pill

    Still searching for that glimmer of hope that one of these days hubby & I will receive life's greatest blessing of all. Would love to hear from others suffering the same infertility pain as us.

    Essilou xx

    Aww, sorry to hear that Essilou, hopefully you can find a plan that works. Have you been seeing the same specialist all this time? Is it worth looking for another?

    to you and FX it will happen soon.

    Waiting here, after DTD as much as possible this month, it seems we are in one of those long no idea what is going on months. On CD 36 here and no idea whether I have O'd or not.

    Just so frustrating as it is all guess work and symptom spotting. I'm eating bad and not exercising so I just feel so rubbish. Stuck in a rut totally at the moment.

    Hi ladies, hope you are all well. I'm just wondering what everyone's cycles were like after their first. I'm 5 months Pp and have had 1 AF. It's been over 50 days since my first af. Should I expect long cycles again like they were before my first?

    Hi Mamasupial, I wish I could help you but since coming off the pill ttc no1 my cycles are none exsistant and only way I get af is through taking provera or if I am in a medicated cycle. Hope af turns up soon for you and you start to make sense of your cycles again.

    Damn.. The only way I got AF before #1 was provera.
