Ladydee - AF reared it's ugly head today which fits my thought that O happened on day 14. My mum does know a lot about PCOS, but she never had endo and has some ethical issues re: IVF which I do not share, so I have not told her anything about what I am going through, she doesn't even know I had surgery in Feb. As for my FS, he gave me a bt and u/s last cycle because I asked for it, but he is pretty much having nothing to do with me until IVF starts it would seem. At least my lining appeared normal and ovulation was confirmed for last cycle. I feel much lower this time than I have any other cycle because I was having symptoms such as prickly, sensitive nipples which I had not had for any other cycles so I was getting excited . I've even wondered if I was but lost it, it was just so much more different. Grrr this sucks so much! We have been BD'ing every second day from end of AF until about day 16, and less frequently then but still around every 3 or 4 days. Technically I know there is hope for my last 2 cycles but as everyone would know, it's hard to stay positive after trying for an extended period. I've been reading up about the process of IVF and the idea of giving myself needles every day for 3 weeks is not appealing, I can't even watch someone else give me an injection!
Good luck for your test tomorrow I hope your levels start to look more positive!

Elly - Sorry to hear that AF has arrived. One of the FS that I seen last year told me that clomid makes you have a lot of pregnancy symptoms. I know it makes it hard though and gets your hopes up. My last clomid cycle last year I was positive that I had at least O but nope I didn't. Have you looked into the FSH injections before moving onto IVF? It's a fraction of the price and a lot less invasive for you. Trust me you will get use to the needles. At the start of our FSH cycle I couldn't watch DH giving me the injections and towards the end I learnt to do them myself, I actually felt more comfortable doing them than what I was with DH doing them. I am now on 2 clexane injections daily and they hurt and I will never be able to do them myself.
Sending lot's of

Oh bummer Elly, that sux. I hope the next cycle is a winner for you. I think we all think about pregnancy sooo much that it can often feel like things are happening when maybe they're not. I tend to wonder though, when the real thing comes along, if we'll even notice??
Ladydee, I hope the bloods went well today!
I had my U/S and BT this morning and again NOTHING! Never mind though, I was kind of expecting that. I start 100mg of Clomid tonight so no waiting around! Ladydee, I totally agree with you on the waiting thing, it's madness! So I'm hopeful that 5 days of Clomid at 100mg will do the trick, guess time will tell. I'm trying my hardest to be positive for this one, though I honestly don't believe anything in my head can change the outcome.
to everyone. Hope to hear some more positive news from you all soon.

Ellymoe - I'm sorry to hear that af turned up. Keeping my and sending lots of to you for this month - I hope your bfp is just around the corner for you.
Bec1989 - welcome, and good luck on your journey. Treatment will differ a lot from one couple to the next and from one fertility specialist to the next. Some people find that alternative medicines like chinese medicine/acupuncture can help in addition to traditional treatments, but like anything it may not work for everyone.
afm - I couldn't wait until my dr's appointment tomorrow night, i caved and called for my bt results today, which confirmed i'm definitely utd, in the early stages (the nurse didn't tell me the exact hcg number). I hope you don't mind if I keep following this thread, I'm really keeping everything crossed for all of you that you'll be getting good news soon - you've all been a wonderful support while I've been over the last couple of months!!

Clomid = yuck! Just wondering if any of you ladies experienced side effects like me while taking Clomid? I was fine last round at 50mg, but now on 100mg it's not going so well. I take the tablets at night and sleep really heavily (which is weird for me) but then I wake up feeling like I've been hit by a truck! Can't eat brekky and feel sick and exhausted until around lunch time. I'm also having cramps similar to af pain. Maybe it's working this time? I sure hope so!
Hope you are all having a good week.

May I join?
Good Afternoon Ladies,
is it ok if i join this thread? I have been reading through it and it genuinely made me smile and feel happy about my situation (as happy as it can get) as i was happy to know there are other women out there that are embarking upon the same procees i am about to and other that have had success from it.
i was diagnosed with pcos when i was 17 and without the bcp i do not get AF and I dont ovulate. DH and I have been TTC for 5 months now with no luck of a period and no ovulation. I have an appt with a obgyn next week and fingers crossed she will prescribe me something to help.
I have a few questions regarding clomid etc, how did you all find the cost of clomid was it expensive? i am curious as I think there will be a good chance that is what I will be prescribed and I would like to know what costs we are up for in the future.
I was starting to get really down on things as it felt like we were DTD for no reason and it was all pointless. at least i have next thurs to look forward to and it mite give me some direction.

Have you had a recent ultra-sound and bt done? If not I'd get a referral for them from your GP, it might save you some delays if Obgyn wants them done before any actions!
I think my pack of 10 clomid was a little over $30. I am currently on 50mg per day for 5 days from the second day of my period, however some people need a higher dose than that to ovulate. So far I'm doing ok with that, it's just a matter of catching the egg! My biggest prob is endo rather than PCOS, and I've been told I'm doing IVF if I don't get UTD in 2 more months
Violet - I mostly just get hot flushes, only once did I get the nausea and dizziness, thank goodness
Waiting - Congrats! So good to get another on here!
AFM: Day 6, final tablet of clomid tonight, work your magic little pill!

Morning ladies! It's been awfully quiet in here lately - hope everyone's doing ok.
Violet - how have the last couple of days been for you, any improvement? I was just on the 50mg, so haven't experienced the problems of a higher dose, but I think I've read quite a few comments that people have noticed more issues with the 100 than 50. Hope it's all settled down for you now though and hopefully those tablets are working their magic for you.
Sammy - I think I'm 2 weeks behind you, give or take a few days. EDD at this stage is 7 Feb, but having a dating scan on Friday to confirm that, and also the number of bubs. You can warn me of what to expect a few weeks in advance! How are you feeling? Everything going well?
MrsPuMp - welcome! I would agree with everything Ellymoe has said. Clomid isn't that expensive in the grand scheme of things - mine was around $30 for 10 tablets too. If you stick to the discount chemists, you might get it cheaper than other places. Good luck for your appointment on Thursday - let us know how it all goes and what they recommend for you.
Ellymoe - a big that the clomid has worked its magic this month. Will be thinking of you and hoping that it's your turn for some great news.
Hope you all have a good long weekend

Bec & Mrs Pump – Some of the best bits of info that I have come across since being diagnosed has been these couple of articles posted by a friend (Bk2b) on another thread, highly recommend having a good read of these..
PCOS – A starting point, not a diagnosis....
This is a great thread full of beautiful ladies who get what your going through and I have learned so so much since joining... looking forward to getting to know you both
Purple Tulip – Aww, I LOVE Byron, were you there for long? I was just thinking the other day how long it had been since I was there. See any whales? Good luck this cycle!
Ellymoe – Ow, ok...I understand about your mom. It’s a wonder though isn’t it....if Clomid hadn’t worked for her, would she have just not had any children? Like, ever?! I kind-of finally told my mom a tiny bit the other day on the phone but, I didn’t really feel any better for it. She just said that I have to prey (she’s not even hugely religious or anything....well, doesn’t go to church but does believe in God) and then she kind-of just changed the subject....bit awkward really....hasn’t bought it up since either. Really, to be fair to her, I guess there’s nothing she could’ve said to make me feel better about all of this but, I dunno....she’s my mom! Don’t we all have that weird belief that they can fix anything or make any problem better??? Hey, I just had a thought.....are you a Clomid baby???? Having symptoms that turn out to be false suck...BIG time, can totally empathize with you there and am sorry you had to experience it....
Violethope – I’m sure your getting the effects of Clomid kicking in and making those stubborn PCOS follies grow. Aww... big fingers crossed that 100mg is your perfect dose!
Angela – I’ve been thinking of you....how’s it all going in your TWW, found enough distractions??? Sending you tones of
Waiting, Sammy, Lissa & Windupbird (anyone else still lurking about?) – SO happy you ladies are still popping in! If you ever decide to wonder off into blissful mommy-ness...I really hope you PM or FB me or something or I’ll be forever wondering how you and your little ones are coming along. I can honestly say that I have absolutely zero/zilch feelings of jealousy or pain over hearing how your pregnancies are coming along, just a complete glow of happiness for you all! Ok so, maybe a bit of vicarious living too but...in a ‘happy-for-you’ good way!!!
AFM – 2nd IUI with FSH injections (50 dosage)......
3/6 – CD9 - Oest=283 (1x11mm follie, 1x12mm follie, lining=6.5mm)
6/6 - CD12 - Oest=481
7/6 - CD13 - Oest=634
8/6 - CD14 - Oest=986
9/6 - CD15 - Oest=1416 (1x21mm follie, lining 13mm...other follie stopped growing). Had trigger injection at about 9:30am.
10th June – CD16 = IUI day!
So, I’m thinking this ended up a much much better cycle than my 1st IUI one as that turned into a 45day cycle and I wasn’t ready for my IUI until CD 29 compared to CD16 this one. I think the 50 dosage of FSH must have been spot on for me. A lot more “normal” anyway and I feel like I’m in with a bit more of a chance at least, well....we’ll see. So...let the TWW begin! I’m booked in for my pg BT on Friday 24th. Hosting a big birthday party for my dad and all of his friends at my house on the 25th so, that could be interesting....at least I’ll have some major distractions I guess!
Haven't heard from a few of our regulars in a while...how are you ladies all doing???
