PCOS - Trying for Baby #1

Postby pcos_prayer&patience » Wed May 08, 2013 8:23 am

I was diagnosed with PCOS FINALLY in December 2012. We have wanted a baby for over a year but due to not ovulating and not having a monthly cycle we couldn't exactly consider it to be "trying". So with the hopes of Provera & clomid we tried for a few months but the clomid failed miserably for me. All it did was give me horrible side effects and still no closer to ovulation. I am now seeing an RE and he has started me on letrozole. This is my first try on letrozole but I am praying it is the answer for us. Any other PCOSers been in my position? Used letrozole? Or just know what it is like to be kept waiting for that baby #1 BFP???

pcos-prayer- I did ovulate with letrozole. I am currently taking 7.5 mg cd 3-7. what cycle day are you on? me, CD7. Are you doing any iui's or just BD? I have an ultrasound cd 12 to see how everything is going so I can take my HCG shot and schedule the iui.

I am on CD5 so we are pretty close! And No, I am not doing any iui's or anything. Just BD. This is our first month of treatment with our RE so we are just going to see how it goes & if I ovulate and then adjust from there If I don't ovulate this first month. Hoping it works out for us but ya just never know. I have an HSG scheduled for the 14th so I have that going on too this month.

I hope the letrozole works for you! I had an HSG done in March. I have heard that the HSG kinda cleans you out and that you are very fertile for up to 3 months after it! Good luck!

The nurse told me that too! I hope it is the case for me. How was your experience with the HSG? I am feeling pretty nervous about it...

Don't be nervous. It's really not that bad. They had a hard time getting the cathader in though. But this was the case with my 1st iui too. It just my anatomy I guess. I had cramps that night from it but after that I was ok.

The actual procedure wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. But I had myself so worked up for it... I had a hard time getting through it. I have terrible anxiety issues so I was pretty much hyperventilating... Ugh it was embarrassing. But I made it through it. I am glad it is over! My Doctor is amazing... he was so patient and compassionate with me during it. And he said that everything looks good! So fortunately, all my testing is over now and everything has come back great. Hopefully now we can get these show on the road & make a baby! What's going on with you?? Are you waiting to ovulate? Should be soon shouldn't it!?!

So glad to hear that the test went well and that everything is fine! Thats great you have a really caring doctor, it makes things easier. So I gave myself the trigger shot Wednesday night and this morning I had my iui. So now I am offically again in the tww! You should be ovulating soon too right? Good thoughts for us both! :)

Glad to hear you are now in the TWW! Keep me updated!! And yes, I should be ovulating anytime now... I get so frustrated with the OPK's. I started them Tuesday & they have gradually gotten a little darker every morning - today's test was pretty dark but not quite there yet. So I am thinking either tomorrow or Sunday I should (HOPEFULLY) get a positive. I just hope that I really will finally ovulate this month. Positive Thoughts for you & me!! :-)

Well, I got a pretty dark but not quite there opk on sunday morning. Then I was gone all day & didn't get a chance to test again and when I tested Monday morning the line was almost non existent. So I called my RE & spoke with the nurse and she said to assume Sunday was my + day. I go in for bloodwork next Tuesday since Monday is memorial day & then I will know for sure. How is the TWW going for you?? Are you noticing any symptoms???

I hope Sunday was the day for you! It sounds like it to me also. :) Im really not trying to think about the tww. No symptoms yet; I'm just 5dpiui. This time I am trying to hold out and not test till 12dpiui. So hard!
