BBW TTC with PCOS and Femara

Postby BLM » Sat Jan 12, 2008 4:01 pm

My name is Bri, and I am 28 years old. I married the love of my life, Kevin, on May 19th of 2007. We are TTC our first child. I was diagnosed with IR and PCOS in June of 2007 when it was found that my testosterone levels were high. I was placed on Glucophage XR 2500mg, but I switched to Fortamet XR 2000mg in November. I also started taking Femara in November of 2007, and I got my BFP on my first cycle. Sadly, then ended in a chemical pregnancy (an early miscarriage)... Right now, I am on my third cycle of the Femara and I try to remain positive in my TTC journey. I have a LOT of PG people in my life *3 of my 5 Bridesmaids!* - but hearing about BFP's still makes me sad. I come here for friends, support, and hope!

Hi! Lots of :babydustg: to you. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I just started my first cycle on Femara. Do you have O-type pain while you're taking Femara? 3 more days left (includ. tonight) then I start the FSH injections. Excited and nervous about starting these meds. :)

Hi BLM and gapeach. I have PCOS and have been taking Metformin for some months now.
This cycle I took Femara (5 days) and FSH shots (3 days), I´m at 3 DPO.

Just wanted to know how it worked out for you, hope it was BFP :D

Baby dust to you...
