I don't know if I'm insulin resistant or not. I thought everyone with PCOS was, cos that was the route cause. I'm not on metformin though. Will have to ask FS tomorrow morning as that's got me wondering now
Been doing the higher dose for 2 days now and been feeling mega crampy in the tummy esp on the left hand side, so maybe that means it working.

Mam - do you have scans as well or just bt? I have scans to check my follies and dose is adjusted based on that?
I am on metformin supposed to be 1500 per day but I usually only do 1000. I tested negative to IR but specialist believes that I may be at some level anyway? I've found since I've been on metformin I crave sugar - never a big chocolate or sugar person before but now def eat more of it. I'm still losing weight though and I'm only 59kg at 165 as it is...

Yeah metformin is supposed to help anyone with pcos, according to the latest literature anyway... But not all doctors agree... Metformin is not just for overweight people, I have a low normal BMI and still benefit from it. The cycle that I overstimulated, I was on and off taking metformin cause i was over it... My fs got mad at me and said it was probably the reason I overstimulatd! So took it religiously the next cycle and had a great result! And I was on it for over 6 months before we started fertility treatment and got the ONLY non-medicated period in my life!!! My fs puts everyone on it who has pcos, but that's just her, not everyone is so convinced by it...
Worth questioning anyway... My gp actually started me on it, and my fs said it was the best thing she could have done.
But can make you feel crap, especially at first!! Your body gets used to it. Slow release tablets make it a whole lot better!
As for the FSH, I get really nauseated as my estrogen begins to rise up... It's terrible!!

I always have blood tests, and then as my estrogen starts to rise I have scans. They say there is no point scanning if my estrogen isn't up enough to produce a follicle. But every clinic is different. Some don't do blood tests... I wish mine did a few less!! Ouch!! Everytime!!! Haha
Yeah my insulin levels were high normal, still started me on it, and it still helped. I take 1500 every night..mEach doctor is different though I guess.
What's your BMI then? Must be quite low? I have a bit more weight but I am about 10cm taller than you

Hey Mam, it is very interesting hearing how others do things. This is just my second gonal f cycle. First cycle was pretty successful I thought and I got my 1 follie after just 17 injections and had 3 scans. Hoping this cycle I should only need 10-12 shots. I'm not sure on my bmi i think because weight isn't really an issue for me noone has really gone too much into it.
Fs seems hopeful that with age and health on our side it's just a matter of a few cycles actually ovulating and we will get our bub. I hope she's right

I will definitely check re: cost when we go on Sunday for the orientation but I am pretty sure they told me all we had to pay for was the sperm wash. We haven't paid a thing so far except hubby's initial sperm analysis. Are you guys seeing FS in private clinics? When I was first seeing my GP, she gave us a referral and also the phone numbers for both a private and a public clinic. She said that the public one would probably have a longer wait time but the private would be much more expensive. We opted the public and had an appointment within a few weeks. The times we can make an appointment are limited but as far as the treatment goes, I'm happy with our FS so far.
Mam, I am in Sydney.. Are you in Sydney too?
As I haven't started the injections yet, I'm abit confused about alot of the things you girls are discussing but I think it's probably good for me to hang around as in a few weeks, I'll be in the same position and will probably have a much better understanding.
