i have just joined so very new to this. Sorry if this is a bit long!
I am 30 years old & my partner & I are desperate to have our first LO. I haven't had a period since January & it feels like the last 6 months has been constant tests & waiting (makes you realise how amazing people are that do it for years!)
All my hormone levels came back normal, all ultrasounds & tubal patency tests show everything is good except my ovaries which are polycystic but Gyn is reluctant to diagnose PCOS due to lack of symptoms.
I was on the pill for 8 years (started taking it due to hormonal bleeding between periods) but my period became irregular (skipped some) in the last year or 2 of taking it & stayed irregular once I stopped. I am overweight (have lost 15kg the last 3 months & now regularly exercising but still working on losing more) & have an anxiety disorder so often under a lot of stress. Dr thinks this may be the main reason for AO.
Gyn had me take two courses of Provera which both resulted in a bleed but didn't work to kickstart ovulation. He recently gave me the option to start Clomid but said he didn't think the time was right & thought that going back on the pill for 3-6 months would regulate my cycle. He thinks that if I do this & continue to lose weight that I will conceive naturally or at least improve the conditions so Clomid has a better chance of being successful.
I have agreed to go back on the pill for 3 months (don't really want to wait 6) but am now so unsure if I made the right decision. Not feeling very hopeful that it will regulate my cycle considering it was becoming irregular while on it & it's the same pill & feels like time is slipping away (always thought I would have children quite young).
Really sorry for such a long post but would really love to hear from anyone who has been through something similar
Also just out of curiosity he has said he would only give me 6 rounds max of Clomid if I do end up taking it. Am I right in assuming this means 6 rounds in a row? So for example 6 rounds & then your body needs a break but could possibly try it again after a while or for a second child etc.
