In need of some PCOS loving!

Postby Dee-pie » Sat Oct 03, 2015 1:36 pm

Hi,

I'm having a anovulatory cycle, but I thought I did O because of the crosshairs FF gave me, but this is my first month temping.

Anyone here who has got pregnant, what helped you conceive? Can you tell by my chart what I need to do to help get pregnant at all? . I have been pregnant before about 6 years ago when I was 19 and this is my 3rd cycle trying.

I just need some advice from people who have been there? I know these are early days but they just seem so long, you know?

Hi Dee-pie,
From your chart, it definitely looks like you haven't O'd. I understand that it can feel very long and lonely, especially around normal ovulaters. Are you seeing a doctor yet? If you know you have PCOS, they often won't make you wait to start investigations and treatments - especially with a really long cycle! I once went about 120 days before my cycle finally ended. Sheesh, it can be frustrating. Unfortunately, I haven't been successful yet,but I temp and I'm on my third round of Clomid. I can tell from your chart that you haven't O'd, and if you don't O you can't get pregnant! That's the first hurdle.

Hi Little Bits!!

Yes it is pretty lonely!

Yeah I've had UV's BT's and I was on metformin for like a month a few years ago.. I liked going out on a Friday for a drink but with metformin I felt so ill while drinking so I stopped. I wasn't TTC then I just wanted to help with insulin resistance because I found it hard to lose weight. my BMI is normal now as I cut out sugar but this month I went a bit all out on cakes and chocolate so maybe its because of that...

I'm sorry you haven't been successful yet, I hope it comes soon for you! what is clomid like? what does it do...Would it be worth asking the doctor about that?

Hello! I found out in March that I have PCOS and IR. I am still taking metformin- lost 40 pounds since March. I had a mc in November 2014 and we have just starting trying again this month. That was rough. I think I O'd but who knows! This is all new to me as we weren't trying when I get pregnant last year! Maybe you should go back to a doctor and get more help! Good luck! :)

Greenbee it sure looks like you ovulated on CD18! And you're 6 days into your TWW! Yay! How are you feeling?

Woot woot! I try to not get excited since we had that mc last year! This may be too much info but I have been bloated and gassy the past few days! I thought my belly was going to pop! And occasional backache/ breast tenderness! But who knows! Seems like my breasts are tender a lot!

Oh my goodness, still gassy, having dull twinning feelings in my abdomen, mostly in the low mid area now, and my back and BBs are very sore! My temp was 97.73 DPO 5,6,7 and today 8 DPO it went up to 97.9. I figured it would as last night I felt like a heat wave ran across me! How is everyone else feeling? :)

Your chart looks great, but it is still early days. Are you holding out to test until AF doesn't show? Or do you like to test early? I like temping because my temp always drops a day before AF so I know she's coming. Hoping all your symptoms lead to a pregnancy!

I will probably be an early tester!!! I can't help it! Maybe after a few cycles of temping I will figure out my norms so I won't get too crazy! :) I hope this is all leading to pregnancy but it is hard to be positive!

You're 9dpo and your temps are still rising, that's a good sign! If you do test early, let us know how it goes :) I've finally ovulated so now I've got my whole fun TWW ahead of me :)
