    What a tool! You need to drop an egg to get pg, and you can't do that on your own... and often the weight is a symptom of PCOS not the cause.

    I don't want to tell you what to do, bc I know you've come to a place of accepting it's over, but is there another gyno you can see? I know you can't afford a FS (either can we) but are there other options to change to someone else. So you have done 4 or 6 cycles of clomid? That's a 1/3 or 1/2 success rate. if you didn't ovulate once, I'd understand more. Even if she said ok, it has worked, so we are going to do 3 months of 100mg, give it a rest for a month or two, then do another 3.

    I'm not sure about seeing someone else. I guess I'd have to ask my dr if there's another public gyno I can go to. The problem is they'd probably do the same thing and tell me to lose weight and I'd probably be facing another waiting list to even see one (took 9 months to get into the one I saw)

    I have a dietician appointment in just over a week so hopefully I can get some help with the weight loss. Oh and I've done 4 rounds of clomid

    Starflame.... I think working one step at a time along this journey is important, and if your weight is really an issue then that's a good thing to see a dietician, eat healthy, exercise and lose that weight that you need to. That can be a good goal for the next 6-12 months, and then you can spend energy on working on the next step. The good news is your young age, so you have time to make plans like that, so I don't think all is lost for you. Chin up :-)

    Yea I've been trying to work on it, honestly. I also have problem knees which makes exercising a bit of a problem but I try my best with it. To be honest I feel that my weight has nothing to do with it, I was a healthy weight for many years and I never had "normal" cycles. They've always either been too short or too long, I can count on 1 hand the number of normal cycles I've had.

    I'm the same Star. It doesn't matter what weight I am, it doesn't change my cycles. I've put on weight & lost it & have never ever had a 'normal' cycle.

    Hey Star, sorry to jump in but I just read your last couple of posts and am so sorry that you're having an awful time. Just wanted to let you know that even at 58kg I wasn't ovulating on clomid with pcos. Also IVF is not your only option and with Medicare FS doesn't have to cost a fortune, expensive yes but not completely out of reach. I was going for mar - oct, did two clomid and 5 of fsh injectables with trigger shot and timed sex and I think it only ended up being about $2k total after all the Medicare rebates and reaching the safety net. I'd be saving up what you can for the rest of the year and see if you can go beginning of next year to give you best advantage of safety net. Fsh injectables have much greater chance than clomid and way easier to adjust the dose and ensure you actually ovulate. Don't give up Hun, you will def get there. All the best

    Star - I would suggest looking around at FS as not all are expensive. If they are linked into a fertility centre they get them to do the daily/ weekly monitoring so you're not actually paying to see the FS as it's monitored by nurses - many do this part fully bulk billed.

    My first FS and centre charged me for cycle monitoring ($200 per month) but wasn't happy with their service.

    The second one has never charged me. He's linked into a fertility centre and they do full cycle tracking (daily blood tests and ultrasounds as needed) all bulk billed, including clomid and tracking. I did have to pay for trigger shots ($60) to make me ovulate where my bloods were not rising correctly but that is the benefit of full tracking as they can intervene when needed. Most of the daily check ups and discussions are with the nurses who are experts too and will answer questions and follow up where needed.

    I moved onto IVF and paid for the IVF cycle, but again FS didn't charge me for all my follow up appointments and scans. This is in canberra that is bloody expensive for medical treatment (bulk billing virtually doesn't exist here and no public system for fertility at all).
