Finally after about a year of trying and 3 rounds of clomid I got my first ever bfp.
Yay congrats xx hope it's sticky.
I got a bfp on my first round of clomid but lost it.
Oh no, so sorry to hear mamasupial. Big hugs.
Had an ultrasound yesterday which revealed there is a cyst on my right ovary. I've had PCOS for a while now with no cysts... I guess it's progressed? Time to get back on the metformin I suppose.
@Mamasupial that's why, for years I didn't think I had it. But apparently because all my hormones and everything else reflected PCOS, I didn't need to have cysts. I found this out when I was talking to my dietician who also happens to be a fertility specialist. I had absolutely no idea prior to that conversation.
Gemima, do you mean that you never had any cysts but always had "follicles" ? I think they say 12+ follicles in an ovary is PCO (to varying degrees.)
I have never been told I have cysts, rather follicles - and I believe essentially they're the same thing really - cyst just seems to be used more often when it's large as opposed to the slightly larger immature eggs or follicles? Women without PCO can get large cysts too.
I didn't realize you could have pcos without more follicles than the 'norm' either ?
I guess what I'm saying is that perhaps you always had excessive 'follicles' but only now have an ovarian cyst?

^Same. My ovaries are always full of those little black circles much like this pic.
