Ladydee - I have never understood the oestrogen levels and what they were checking for (so thanks for explaining that earlier) so can't say I can remember what happened with mine last time. Hopefully you see an improvement with your oestrogen levels when they increase your FSH dose. Last time I had to increase my dose several times in the cycle I became pregnant, think they have to watch us PCOS ladies very carefully so as not to over stimulate us so cant do it all too quickly, it took me nearly 4 weeks in all before they gave me the trigger shot so don't lose faith it can still happen. Can you not ask to up your dose of met? That's one thing I am definitely happier about this time as I have been on met since coming off the pill originally so it will be in my system more and it seems to have helped with my acne as I have had no issues this time. Usually in PCOS women the LH level can be double the FSH where as back in 2010 mine were over 3 times the FSH level, not sure quite how they relate to my FSH levels this time but obviously still very high. From my understanding my follicles are not receiving enough FSH to grow and develop and my body tries to ovulate before it is ready due to the amount of LH. Last time even my fertility nurses read my results wrong and told me I was ovulating when I wasn't due to lh level, good job I had an idea of what what was going on lol!
I remember finding it difficult working all my appointments around work last time and found it very stressful especially as no body knew what we were going through. I am lucky this time though as I am a stay at home mum, will now just have to drag DD everywhere with me lol! Hope you manage to juggle all your appointments x

Hey Ladydee, my cycle with DS was a long ish one. Started on 75 and went up to 100 eventually. I injected for 14 days, so not as long as you. I don't think you're out of the running, as long as your lining is good and your levels are where they need to be, I'd say your chances are great!
I work part time. I'm a teacher. It can be tricky to get to appointments, but I'm fortunate that my clinic has a blood/scan place (no appointments there, just monitoring checks) that is 5 mins from my school. They open at 7:30am, so most times I can go in and be at work without anyone noticing I'm late. How awful that your DD has asthma! Gosh that must be scary when she's sick.

This is a few days late but I just wanted to say thank you ladies for explaining FSH injections to me so well a few days ago. I'm feeling much more confident about it all now. Hope everyone's having a lovely weekend!

Hey ladies. Well, in my effort to not get obsessed with this cycle, I ended up bottling up my feelings and having a ridiculous outburst this morning I'd had 2hrs sleep, the HCG shots give me insomnia, then once I finally drifted off, my DS started waking. I bawled my eyes out like a crazy person when I got up. My poor DH, he wasn't sure what to do. This stuff is hard. I need to accept that and give myself a break. I'm 6DPO today. One more pregnyl shot to have tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have a result in 7-9 days.
How's everyone else cycling? Heyside, when will they test your LH levels? Ladydee, any luck with those follies yet? Sending big hugs to all of you. No matter what our path to conceiving is, PCOS is tough, and fertility issues are beyond tough. Xoxoxo

Sorry to hear your having a bad day Violet hope. I definitely understand how your feeling. It sounds like the pregnyl
Is giving you side effects. Hopefully it'll leave your system soon and you can blame it on pregnancy hormones. Pcos sucks big time. I hate it sooooo much.
Looks like my period is ending. 15 frea*king days!!!!! 15!!! Worst period of my life ever!!!

Oh no violethope big hugs , sorry this cycle is getting you so down, hopefully you will hear some good news soon and you will be on cloud 9. So hard for our partners too isn't it as they don't seem to have the emotional connection to everything like we do and can't understand how we are feeling.
I am presuming they won't test my LH levels until I have been on the pill for a month. I am going to the clinic tomorrow for DH semen analysis and have an appointment over the phone booked in for next week to discuss all results so far, so will find out more then.

ProudMumma - Oh no 15 days!!! You poor thing, thank goodness that is over for you. Definitely with you there I hate PCOS too, seems to have taken over my life again and I have also realised how important it is for me to try and take control of it for the rest of my life now and not just when ttc

Oh my goodness, I was having a very low day yesterday and had a quick peek in here to see that although I wouldn't wish any of this cr@p on anyone.....there's something in knowing that there are actually other people out there in the world who really truly *get* it. As much as I love my friends and family, they just don't understand whatsoever. The couple of people i told that we were thinking of starting back on the fertility treatment rollercoaster got all excited and even said "Yay how exciting! Congratulations!!!". Uhhh.... no. NOT "exciting" in the slightest. But I cant really get upset or really even very annoyed with them as I understand that they just have no idea what making a baby this way entails......I wish I didn't have to know either! So yup....PCOS does very much....SUCK! Big cyber hugs to anyone who needs one :-)
Lemon- Where abouts are you up to......when will you be joining us in the injecting world, or is there still hope for your latest Clomid cycle? Good luck!
Far-out Proudmamma...15 days?! That's awful, you poor thing....did your doctor/clinic explain why you had to take Provera for such a long period of time? I'm certain I only had to take it for about 5 days back when I was starting out on Clomid.....I'm sure there was a good reason. Are you moving onto Clomid or injections this cycle?
Hello Chunkyducks I hope everything is going ok for you. I think I read that you're on a break??
Violet - Huuuugs to you I *so* feel for you and could have wrote your exact post several times during my previous TTC time :-I I was determined not to get carried away this time around and try and be a lot more cool, calm and collected but, I can already see that is going to be mission impossible. I'm sure your BFP is just around the corner!....as in mere days away That sounds great how your tests don't have to interfere with work. I only work Mon, Tues & Wed but inbetween my DD asthma and now all of these tests with my long cycle from hell, I'm really having to be a pain in the bum for my bosses trying to cover me like alllll the time :-/ My clinic is 1/2hr one way and my job is 1/2hr the opposite way and my fertility clinic starts taking blood at 7:30am.....which is when my shift at work starts :-/ Can't be at two places at once! I can't ask to start at 8am as they keep asking me to start at 7am which so far I've said no to as it doesn't work with my DD and Childcare. Bah, I really find getting to appointments very very stressful! I'm not sure if you remember that I am a Pathology Blood Collector so I've gotten back into collecting my own blood a couple of times when I don't need a scan so that my DH can drop off my blood sample and have at least a couple of less days off than I would otherwise have to. I really need my two hands to collect blood so, it's not a very easy thing to do! Yes, my DD's asthma has had some very scary times during several hospital visits like being in Paediatric ICU with tubes strapped all over her and her being all limp using all of her energy to try and breathe :'-( That's why it's taken us a little longer than what we planned to get started trying (well reeeeally trying with fertility help) for #2.......I'm still very very scared we may get another asthmatic bub as my hubby was exactly the same as a kid, whenever he got a cold, it would turn into bronchialitis and then asthma.... so I guess it's a hereditary thing as no one in our family smokes or anything like that.
Heyside - how are you doing Hun? I have fingers crossed that your LH behaves and gets right back to where its needs to be
AFM- My cycle is going from bad to worse and unless a miracle happens, is about to be cancelled :-/
21/7-CD2 = 50 FSH/day
2/8 - CD14 Oest=182
No dominant follies
5/8 - CD17 Oest=220
8/8 - CD20 Oest=236
9/8 - Started 62.5 dose of FSH/day
2 x 10mm follies/ right ovary
12/8- CD24 Oest=257
4 x 10-12mm follies/ right ovary
Blood test and ultrasound tomorrow.......I'm too much of a realistic thinker to feel very positive for tomorrow, bring on next cycle!....:-/

Wow laydee. Sounds like it's a bit chaotic for you at times. Asthma is a cruel beast. My pop had very bad asthma all his life and watching him struggle was never easy. Id there a chance of your DD's getting less severe as she gets older?
We are on a break here. DH has a pain specialist appointment next week and testosterone injections will be discussed while we're there. With any luck it will increase his almost non existent libido. Then the next one, which we haven't made yet, is the neurologist. That's the big scary one. I still have to get a referral to the gyno too and go from there with treatment. I'm assuming clomid is usually one of the first steps with AC? Mix all that in with starting a new job on friday and things sound crazy but they're not really.
