@MapleBecky:  I’m not going through this, but I wanted to lend my support.  I’m sorry you’re going through this.  How annoying for hormonal imbalance issues to arrise just when you decide to TTC.  Hopefully the testing and OB appointment will provide some answers for you.

I am not trying to concieve, but I do have PCOS. Do you have any symptoms of PCOS? Like weight gain, acne, skin tag, facial hair,and insulin resistance?

PCOS, once it is known, can be treated with eith metformin or clomid so once they find out they most likely get you pregnant in no time.

If you have any questions about PCOS, let me know and I will try to help!

I’ve had PCOS for almost half my life and I am constantly doing research.

@MapleBecky:There is a whole IF thread of really fantastic women going on this journey together. You should pop in over there and ask. They are very supportive and have tons of answers. All the best of luck to you and your hubby!

I have PCOS and we have just started TTC.  I was put on Metformin in September because I have the insulin resistence with it.  So far, so good.  No BFP yet, but I have started ovulating since starting the medication which is great!

I commpletely agree with @PasteMoo, the IF threads are fantastic.  Best of luck to you, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

@MapleBecky: Good luck with your testing – I have PCOS (found by wonky hormones, irregular cycles, annovulation and a whole skew of yucky symptoms … stupid acne/facial hair/weight gain, etc) & it stinks. But I do recommend stopping by the IF thread (or heck, even the general TTC thread) and saying hello. There’s a lovely batch of ladies there who are a great support system. 🙂
