    Don't give up Hun. I have pcos and have a 2.5yo and a 5 month old. I've used ovulation induction for both of them. For my second I used clomid. First month I had a mc. Second month I got pregnant with my daughter.

    Jackie2 I know exactly how you feel. Like the other lovely ladies have said, you are definately not alone. This thought runs through my head EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I've been TTC for 5 years now & have had multiple IUI's, IVF Stim & FET's and have never once had a BFP. Not even a squinter of a line in all that time.

    It's like I have two voices constantly in my head.....one whispers to me "keep going, you might be lucky one day" but then an even stronger voice says "it's just not going to happen for you". My gut instinct tells me I'm never going to be pregnant. It's so hard to pull myself out of this negative mind set. Hugs hun, best wishes for you on your TTC journey.

    It took us 13 months to fall with DD and then 2 years to fall with #2. We had all the checks - nothing wrong, all perfectly healthy. I had a laparoscopy in July 16, again nothing wrong. We were about to start IVF (had all my scripts ready and we're waiting for AF to show so I could do my day 1 bloods). It never showed, turned out I was pregnant. That was September 16. I don't know if the laparoscopy had anything to do with it, maybe just helped in clearing out my tubes, but considering it was 2 years of nothing and then 2 months later bfp I reckon there was some link.

    I felt this way for a long time. DH & i had been actively ttc for about 2yrs & nothing was happening so we both went & saw a fs who did all the necessary tests. They found nothing wrong with either of us & we were put in the "unexplained infertility" box. This was 2015. We saved & were to start ivf in January 2016 but December 2015 we found out we were expecting our little miracle. I was already 13wks when we found out. Never give up hope, life is full of mystery. I never thought it would be my turn & im writing this with our 7 month old beautiful baby girl asleep on me xo

    @jackie2
    I read everyone's stories here and it gives me some comfort
    I'm similar to u, 30yo PCOS ttc since sept 2015 - and it feels like I'm just going through the motions of fertility treatment and not getting anywhere
    I've known I've had pcos since I was 16 (when I first got together with DH) and we were always super careful not to get utd
    Now we are doing everything we can and yet nothing
    I know it doesn't make things better and many people around u may not understand (my sisters just need to look at their hubby and they utd) but don't give up hope - we will get our miracle one way or another and it will just make it that much more precious

    I totally hear you. My husband and I tried for a baby from the moment we got married just over 10 years ago.. we went through years of heartache and pain struggling with the infertility and ivf journey. I swapped specialists mid last year, had a laparoscopy and endometriosis removed. 6 weeks later, miraculously fell pregnant naturally... I had given up that it would ever happen to the point that we didn't even realise I was pregnant until just over 7 weeks. Here I am now, 22 weeks pregnant, lying on the couch feeling so many kicks.

    Trust me I never thought it would happen - but it did! Don't give up, definitely see a specialist sooner rather than later!

    I felt exactly like that until I had my dd in 2015. I could never 'see' my future with a child in it and didn't think it would happen. I also have pcos (diagnosed at 23) and needed ivf to get pregnant. I was 33 when I had my dd and we had been trying for 6 months before I started fertility treatment (I didn't ovulate naturally) and it was then another 2yrs of fertility treatment before I got pregnant through ivf.
    Even though you have been pregnant it's definitely worth getting a referral to a fertility clinic for extra investigations and support. Hopefully you are blessed soon

    I have been using some apps to track ovulation and I bought internet cheapie for ovulation strips but I have never had a positive result. I am thinking about buying the clear blue digital dual ovulation tracker.

    Hmm... I've been using some internet cheapies and found them ok, but I also like the Ovuplan ones. Never bought the digital ones but many swear by them. Maybe consider temping? I've just started and finding it really helpful.
