    Thanks for joining in ladies
    I feel for all of your losses, but so happy for your bfp twenty something!
    Melimum, I understand the timing issues with work. I live and work on the east coast and my partner and kids live and work on the west coast. Our last trip was longer thankfully, but normally they are around 5 days. It does make it easier now I'm back on the drugs as it's easier to time the cycles (especially since I don't have one without the progesterone and letrozole). 14 months left apart and then we'll be back together (earlier if we get pregnant).
    The mental exhaustion is terrible. I'm glad we've got this forced break to be honest. I'm focusing on getting fitter and healthier.
    My partner and I have made a deal not to talk babies until mid November (he doesn't remember I use this forum hahaha).
    I'll be thinking of you on Monday xoxox

    I thought i might just pop in and share my story, i was like many of you I was 26 when i was diagnosed with genetic pcos. My husband and i tried for year to get pregnant, while everone around feel pregnant and had their babies. I have never cried so much in all my life. We commenced treatment we did 5 failed cycles of clomid, metformin. Before we finally commenced injectables after 4 failed attempts using metformin, gonal f and trigger shot. We were teird and exhausted but gave it one last shot and finally got out bfp! I am currently 18 and half weeks pregnant with our first baby.
    I know this just feels like another one of those stories, but know that you are not alone. We had so many tears, oh boy were there tears, month after month the feeling of failure. Please dont give up and dont feel alone. Because there are so many others out there that have battled the pain and heart break, the woman down the street your work college they all may be facing the same struggle so be kind to others and your self. Best of luck to all of you xo
    Hey twentysomething. Welcome and thanks for your message! It does give us hope that there's a way forward. It's especially hard if you're not expecting the pcos diagnosis as I was not. I'm on letrozole and it's my first time trying this.. fingers crossed it works first time! Hope is your pregnancy going? Hope it's going smoothly!

After 2 months on metformin i fell preg in july 2013. Unfortunately our 2nd dd was born sleeping 17.10.13 at 21 weeks. I went on the have 3 more miscarriages before being diagnosed with a blood clotting disorder last September. This year will be 4 years trying and I've recently started metformin again. We have discussed clomid with our fs and that will be our next step its just hard to time in with my partner working fifo. I feel exhausted and so over it. Literally everyone around me is having babies and my dd is always asking for a sibling. Monday will be 3 years since we lost our darling girl and I'm dreading it...
    Welcome melimum. Sounds like you have had a very difficult journey. FIFO sucks, I don't know how you guys do it. Give the clomid a shot, what about iui or something if your partner is often away when you're ovulating etc not ideal but maybe worth considering. So sorry for the loss of your daughter. Thinking of you and hope you're ok on Monday

    How about you? What's on the cards for your next round?
    Miss mac, I was on letrozole this cycle, it's worked in terms of triggering so my bloods looked promising And scan looked good with follicle there. They didn't think I needed the trigger injection this time and so Hopefully my body agrees and stimulates ovulation. I saw from another post your family is over west and you're on east coast. That's so hard! I've done east to west long distance before (but wasn't ttc then) and it was extremely difficult. I wish you the best, keep busy xx

    Hi ladies,
    I hope you don't mind if I jump in on this one too.

    MorganLeroy where abouts in Sydney are you? I'm in western Sydney

    Here's a bit of my story. Im 29 (turn 30 in 2 weeks )
    I had my DS1 at 18 and my 2nd at 20. I feel pregnant "accidentally". After DS2, I had a mirena iud put in. 1 year later it had to be removed due to causing huge cysts on my ovaries. I had testing done and it was discovered I had PCOS.

    Fast forward to now. I've been married, divorced and now with my new DP for over 2years. We 100% new we wanted a child together from the get go.

    I have not had my period in 10 years and I have extremely low progesterone meaning I don't ovulate. I often feel I don't have the right to be upset because I already have 2 beautiful children!

    I'm starting fertility accupuncture on Monday along with Chinese herbs. I've decided to give myself a few months of natural options before I see a fertility specialist early next year.

    It can be such a lonely road so threads like this are a god send

    Hi dreaming, welcome. I am in inner city actually. It sounds like you have had a difficult road. 2 years is a long time. It sounds like maybe progesterone or something may help you to induce period, and letrozole. Goodluck with your trial, I hope it works on its own! The waiting lists for fertility specialists can be long, it took me at least 2 months to get in.
    I've been doing acupuncture, hard to know if it works or not but there is evidence for it, so I am giving it a try
    You have a right to be upset, I can understand why you feel like you want to complete your family. You have 2 beautiful children but it doesn't make your desire for a 3rd invalid. You are still young so you do have time on your side which is a positive, best of luck

    Hi Morgan,
    Sorry to hear you've not had any luck.
    I've had 3 sessions of acupuncturist and on Monday, I got my period for the first time in 10 years! Unfortunately it only lasted 2 days but it's better then nothing.
    This will be my first official cycle of opk and tracking having some idea of where I am in my cycle!!

    How's everyone else going?

    Hi dreaming. Glad to hear acupuncture worked for you. I have been going to acupuncture regularly. I am having a letrozole cycle at present and I ovulated (early) and didn't need any triggers. Waiting to see the outcome.

    @morganleroy do you take Chinese herbs along side the acupuncture? I have a session this afternoon and really look forward to it every week.

    How long were you trying before you started on letrozole?

    That so exciting that you've ovulated! Fingers crossed for a good outcome
