I used to blog here about 12 months ago but have now decided it is time to start again.
I was diagnosed with PCOS 4 years ago after coming off the pill and not having a period for 12 months. Once PCOS was confirmed I went straight onto Clomid which I did for 8 cycles all had ovulation but all BFN, two months after stoping the medication and started seeing a naturopath we finally got our BFP only to have a mc in May 08. We decided to have a three month break after the mc before we started back on Clomid and metformin. We did another 4-5 months on the meds before I decided to give my body a break and stoped all the medication – which went well I still got AF on a 35-38 day cycle on clomid it was around 32 – a little longer but then after about 12-15 months my body decided to stop and went back to nothing.
Mid year I went to my local GP and told her that I haven’t had AF in a couple of months so she has now put me back onto metformin as well as referring me to a FS. I Went and seen the FS who wanted to run a stack of tests to see where my body is at as well as DH. After discussions with DH we have decided not to proceed with the tests at the moment as we are currently building a new home and we want to wait until we have moved in early Jan/Feb before we start any treatment (if required) Don’t need anything else to stress over.
I am currently at CD5. This AF was really heavy with a lot of blood clots about 5cms long and filling a tampon every 30 mins so my GP has put me onto progesterone to stop the bleeding, which it has but I now have to easy my self off of the progesterone. I read that progesterone in the first half of a cycle is not a good thing so not sure what to expect for this cycle. – Sorry if TMI
So in short I am currently taking metformin 1000mg a day to regulate my cycle and looking at seeing the FS again in the new year & look forward to joining everyone in the TTC journey.

Wow it has been a long time since I have put in an entry
Not really sure how I am feeling at the moment, a little confused, for the past 12 months or so I have been O without any medication. Now all of a sudden my body just stops, No AF, no BFP and no sign of AF on her way at CD46 – Since I haven’t been temping not really sure if I have o this month my body signs make me think that I have but can’t be sure. & haven’t been to the Drs
I have put on a bout 3-5kgs enough to make me feel flat and yucky. So I have decided to start a the 4321 detox for 10 day (the one that you put in your water and can still eat) to see if that helps, but am a little scared as it says not to take if pregnant – I had a BFN on Sun May 2nd but since I am not sure what my body is doing not sure as I read that it has a lot of caffeine in it after I started doing it this morning
So thinking I should probably go to the Drs and see what they say about no AF - but since I work late cant get in until next Saturday and if I keep doing the detox then it will be day 7 out of 10 so not sure if I should stop now of keep going

It has been 6 weeks since i had my lap & got AF on 21/10. Not sure what to expect in regards to O that it would happen again naturally but wasn't really sure what was going to happen. After some up and down temps early in my cycle, it looks like i have O :dane: on CD 20 which now puts me in the 2ww. I have a gf's hens night tomorrow night and i know she is going to want me to have a few drink with her, but don't really want to tell her why. She knows we are trying & what we have/are going through so maybe i will just tell her that i have O and that i don't want to risk it -I'm sure that she will be ok with this??
Told mum that i have O so now she has decided that she will come food shopping with me weekly now so i don't lift anything heavy (have two big dogs and get 14 cans of large cans weekly) as she doesn't want me to risk it - not sure if she thinks that may have been the reason for the mc.
Going to stay positive but at the same time don't want to get my hopes up to much

Well it is 2 weeks today since I had the op and feeling good my stitches still haven’t dissolved so hopefully they won’t take to much longer. My appointment with the Dr who did the op isn’t until Nov 11 so a bit of a wait to see them. FF also decided to take my O day from CD26 to CD35 so am only 6 DPO not 15DPOTemps have been going down the last 3 days so not really sure what is going on & had some really good cramps today. Not sure if the op would have effected the cycle at all. Hoping that I can keep O on my own and not go to long before AF arrives. but who really knows what is going on with my body

Well had my appointment today with the FS and she has basically told me that it wont be worth me going back onto Clomid and that I would be better off starting IVF as it will be a better success rate 40% compared to 10% on IUI. However she is happy to give me a prescription if I choose not to do IVF straight away.
She has also given me a letter to give to the Dr who is going to do my Lap on 02/09 and asked if they could do a HGC to “flush” my tubes again as well as ovarian drilling while they are in there.
Since DH was not able to attend today she asked me where he was in regards to the TTC. She was implying / asking if we have a strong relationship and finding out if it was one sided or not. So I had to defend him & our relationship that we both want to have a baby it is just that he doesn’t necessarily want to go down the IVF path just yet.
To be totally honest I was a little upset when I came out of the appointment and seen couples who where either leaving or arriving for appointments and there I was by myself. I guess I was really there to find out what our options are so there was no real need to for DH to be there and I know that it hard to get away from work when it is 45+ minutes away and only 10 for me. There was nothing really he could have done today anyway. & she said her self that he only needs to be there to “deposit” as such all the scans and injections are all me not him.
So I guess the next step for me is to speak to DH about what our options are and see what he wants to do. I am leaning towards getting the results from the Lap and seeing what happens after about 2 cycles and then possibly start meds again in Jan. and then talk about IVF then

It has been a long time since i have posted.
Since stopping the medication on December i have 4 natural cycles -Currently on my 5th with O each month. Cycles have ranged from 40-50 days.
So have no organised an appointmemt with repromed to speak to a FS in regards to seeing what options we have - what is the next step. Go back on meds and then possible tracking cycels
Have also booked into have a lap done on 2/10 so that will help get our BFP
