This is my first post but I have been following your stories for a while now.
I also have PCOS and I am going to be starting injectibles and IUI in hopefully 10 days. Any hints or tips about injectibles are appreciated. I will be on Gonal-F starting very low at first 12.5 and working up. I have been waiting for 2 and a half months to start this cycle
So I just wanted to introduce myself and say that it is so nice to read the stories of people struggling with the same issues. None of my friends have had any problems getting pregnant and have quite anti-fertility treatment views so sometimes I have found it hard going through this journey alone.
It is so nice to see so many of you have successfully ovulated and are in the TWW. Violethope it's especially looking good for you! Sending loads of babydust and hope that this is the month for you. I hope to join you soon

I'm a previous member and wanted to jump back onto this thread if it's ok?
A little bio on me: We started trying for a baby back in January 2010 and we're still trying. I started Clomid back in December 2010 and I'm still on it. I'm also now on Metformin. In March my AF was late and I stupidly thought it was our time! I in fact had just O'd later than usual. So then my AF was absent from March (when I thought I might have fallen preggers) up until this month. On Aug 3rd I had a laparoscopy with a dye test etc. They also checked if I had endo - I didn't. (Very grateful that I don't) But they found that my left tube is blocked as no dye could filter through. My pelvis is a bit out of whack and my cervix is ridiculously small? I would've been discharged from the hospital the same day but due to excessive bleeding from the whole they made, I had to stay over night and have my blood pressure checked EVERY HOUR. So I'm waiting to see my gynaecologist on August 24th to see what our options are but the doctor at the hospital said my DH and I will have to go down the IVF road.
So I've come back after a little break from BH and would love any feedback if anyone has been down the same similar road? I've read a few things online regarding Royal Jelly, Bee Pollen and Propolis helping regulate good egg quality etc and apparently it's like miracle stuff for women with PCOS?
Would love to hear from anyone!
Extra baby dust to all.

Welcome onexbabyplease and welcome back cazi girl.
I feel your pain onexbaby. I have only told my parents and a close friend about PCOS and although they're very supportive, I don't think they really know what to say.
For instance, we had lunch with my parents today and we were talking about my cousin (who is 36) that has just announced her pregnancy, which will be her second. Dad looked at me and said "See you have plenty of time" He was meaning to be supportive however it only served to remind me that the gyno said PCOS gets worth with age and I don't have "plenty of time."
I also don't have any friends that are struggling with infertility so I can definitely say that it is good to come here and talk to people who really understand.
Sounds like you've really been through the emotional ringer Cazi Girl and I have my for you

Familyplanner- I know what you mean! I get those "cheer up, its not so bad" comments all the time. Recently my father in law tells me this story about a lady he worked with for fifteen years who tried and tried to have a family, and then she finally got pregnant after ten years of TTC. He tells me we just have to keep trying and it will happen. They don't seem to understand PCOS. Especially the fact that I don't ever ovulate on my own- so explain to me how its just going to happen? All I could think about was that poor lady probably having to put up with ten years of people make stupid comments at her.
I'm glad you ladies seem to understand the frustration. At least we can support each other.
cazigurl- I have also read about egg quality and bee pollen, royal jelly etc. I was taking bee pollen for my clomid cycles along with maca root and spirulina, but I didn't grow any follicles in those cycles so I don't know if it improves quality- sorry. The reviews sound good though

1xbabyplease - it's VERY easy for people to be anti-fertility treatments when they have their own children. Why do they have issues with these treatments anyway? Some of the most well-meaning people can make the stupidest comments, I have to remind myself that they mean well to avoid going postal
Violet - I'm going ok, on BCP at the moment (can't remember why but they do that at the start of all IVF I believe) and start a nasal spray which will stop my body from only producing one egg early next week. Then on to injections!
Good luck to everyone

Hi There Everyone,
Im sorry i hardly get any time to get on here lately.
I am on my last iui before ivf and I test on the 20th august. Went and had my initial appt with fs and nurses about ivf last week and fs wants me on metformin and she said i could start taking it now. Im in the 2ww and I don't want to hurt anything so might start it later. Im hoping it helps me loose weight!! LOL
I have also started to get like achne on my right cheek so i guess my symptoms seem to be getting worse.
I will be doing a long down reg cycle which involves the pill. But this iui might just work so fingers crossed.
Im 8dpo today and not sure if i feel any different hard to tell with symptoms. I don't seem to be as worried this time, as I have so much on .
We movein 3 weeks and we bought a car that i pick up tomorrow.
If anyone has any experience with metformin i think she called it dex ..something. I would like to know.
My dosage of fsh will be 150 i was on 75 with iui.

Thats great you can use the same doctor if you have to go down the road of IVF.... but fingers crossed for you that you fall pregnant before than
I have an appointment with my doctor on Tuesday and from what the nurses have told me the injections will be my next step also... I dont know alot about the injections as yet.
I hope that you find some luck with chlomid

Hope you dont mind me commenting on your post but I am also finding the same troubles. Alot of my girlfriends are having babies or getting pregnant at the drop of a hat and I really dont have many people to talk to about this as they havent been through it or understand the frustration.
All I wanna do is give the world to a little person and my partner is the same.
I to dont ovulate on my own and its very frustrating that we as a lady trying to conceive can't control our own body.... but only positive thoughts I suppose from here. I am trying to be upbeat and positive as they say stress is not good for trying to conceive (easier said than done)...
I wish you luck with your journey!
