I used to come on LJ linked to an eating disorder I had years ago - I've been recovered for many years.... I'm hoping this community is as supportive! we've been ttc for years... had one mc in 2009 only got to 8 weeks... I've had all the different tests done and everything comes back normal, husbands count first came back low second fine... At our last Hospital appointment we didn't see the consultant just another dr... the Dr we saw just kept saying don't worry, just relax, there is no reason why it's not happening! She gave me Chlomid (50mgs) for 3 months, she said stop all the ovulation packs etc and relax, if not pregnant after 3 months phone the hospital on day 1 of cycle and get another 3 months... well Day 1 of 4th cycle I tried phoning and the consultants secretary - no one there, today is day 4 and I got through to the consulants secretary and she didn't know why I only got 3 months supply, no tests were organised while taking chlomid, and she asked if i had been doing the o tests, when I said no, I felt like an idiot, I've been tracking temp, but she said its too late to get another prescription for this cycle so I have no choice but take a months break and another Dr will phone me... Even though on Chlomid my cycle is still around 26 days... just feel like I've lost faith in them.... 3 friends have had a baby in the last week and I'm just finding it so hard!!! So wanting to cry and really not having any friends that understand...
Our NHS dont do any free IVF cycles.... ahhhhhh!
Hoping to find some people on here in the same position
Hi, I have PCOS and I just met my new RE today for the next step in finally getting pregnant after 2 years. He wants to put me on Clomid again... I did it with my OB/GYN but she didn't even give me ultra sounds to see if I ovulated and never even examined me after 3 cycles. Anyway.. he is really big on me losing weight and I am going to really try. But he wants to try clomid next month and is going to give me 3 ulta sounds each cycle with the shot in the middle of my cycle. I am really excited about this. So my question is for us big beautiful girls out there, how was your luck getting pregnant on clomid and how was your experience with it? He is starting me off on 100 mg this first cycle. And I'm already on 2000 mg of metofrmin daily.
Thanks in advance! :)
I literally take an hcg test every day! it's ridiculous i need to wait a few days. anyone else struggle with wanting to know so badly you forget that hcg doesnt show up the morning after you ttc!? hahaha laughing at myself!

I have some big fertility fears.
Last October I bled for two months straight before being put on Norethisterone to stop the bleeding.
Then in April I bled for two weeks before Norethisterone.
Aaand then recently I bled for three weeks, more Norethisterone.
No 'normal' periods during this time. They are few and far-between, and crazy.
I got a blood test and it showed to be completely normal. I am now waiting for a trans-vaginal scan appointment.
I was convinced that they would be testing for ovarian cysts, but after speaking to my Doctor - it turns out that no, they'll be testing for fibroids.
I am absolutely terrified of being infertile. My fiance and I plan to TTC in the next couple of years, but that'll be so difficult with these insane periods and I don't know if I'll even be fertile or not.
Anyone have experience with fibroids or have any advice..?
I was wondering if anyone had miscarried before having a child. If so, when did you miscarry? (How many weeks into the pregnancy?)
The reason I ask is I think that I may have miscarried. I started birth control about 4 weeks ago (i'm on my last line of pills and there are only two left.) The week before my hubby and I fooled around a lot. I have PCOS so I was waiting to see the Gynocologist the last week of July. I had been nausious teh week before and the weeks following, but instead of doing a pap smear and my annual, she just talked to me. I had been too three different Gynos in teh past 3 yers and for four months prior to my visit I had been bleeding (on my period). So, she said that instead of doing an exam and risking abnormal results tha she would prescribe me bc to regulate my period and to come back in a month and she would do an exam then. She presribed me YAZ. At first I thought that it was the YAZ making me sick (I haven't been on birth control since August 2006). Well today (if you are squeemish or get disgusted easily do not read any further.), I noticed clots on my pad (I usually wear tampons, but they were causing me to cramp and causing intense pain). It's normal for me to have clots of blood when I'm on my period, but I noticed that there was a small bit of grey (like a small umbilical cord.) No longer then an inch. There was also some white particals in the blood clot as well. It was like a mucus. IF I was pregnant, I would be between 1-5 weeks pregnant. I'm just looking for advice. I was suppose to go to the doctor on Thursday, but had to reschedule due to the fact that I have no ride to the doctor. I'm rescheduling for a few weeks from Thursday. I'm just worried. I'm cramping constantly (but that's normal for me with my PCOS) but my cramps are causing pain in my back. Today it was so bad that I crawled up in my bed and just laid there for 30 minutes. I took 3 IB Prophens, but it didn't ease the pain, and pamprine isn't working either (and it usually does the trick!) I'm just freaking out and need some advice and reassurance. My husband and I desperately want children. And I'm scared that this could have been our chance and that some how I screwed up and miscarried!
So I am on my third round of clomid, at the end of every month I am suppose to call my Dr's office and tell them if I had a period or not, (I have never ovulated on clomid, so no period). I am told to go take a blood test, just to cancel pregnancy out, and than we start another round of Clomid. Well so far two months have been good. I call the Nurses's desk and in about a day I get a call back. Well this month has been so frusturating. I decided this round not to take a hpt, I just want a 100% answer w/ a blood test (I have gotten two false positives). Anyway I have been calling my Dr's office for OVER A WEEK. No call back, no anything. I am leaving messages EVERYDAY. I even called the front desk where you schedule appointments and left a message with her and still nothing. I do not know what to do, this is the Dr I have done so many test with, almost year with her, using Clomid from her and I can not even get a call back. I have no idea what to do. I am just so mad!!
