mrsbays913 :  you sound a lot like me! Not diagnosed officially with PCOS but have a polycystic ovary and did ovarian drilling in that ovary. Also trying for a year and a half. The best thing I did was start acupuncture. It’s so relaxing and it truly makes you feel like your body is capable of anything. I know this process is hard. I’m currently trying for the first cycle since my lap and drilling and I’m more anxious than ever. Just remember, you aren’t broken. Sometimes things fall into place when they are supposed to. Think positively and you’ll get there. 😘 I’m here if you want to vent!

Similar story here.  TTC for 18 months to get my 1st, diagnosed with PCOS and had a cyst removed in 2011, meds/tests/lots of sonos… I was on clomid and alternating BC every other month to keep my cysts small.  I had an HSG done and got pregnant 2 weeks later, right before we were going to start IUI.  I’d sugust having a sperm test done on your hubby to rule out any factors on his part and see if your dr thinks an HSG would be something to try.  It’s a test where they injet dye into your tube and take x-rays to see if you have any blockages in your tubes.  It’s not uncommon to get pregnant after that if you did have a blockage bc the dye can help to clear it.  

Have you been to your OB to talk about TTC?  Typically after 12 months they’ll start you on meds or run some tests to see what could be going on. Do you know if you’re ovulating? If so, that’s great!  If not, that’s probably step 1 with your OB – getting you to ovulate, if other testing doesn’t show something else is going on.  Good luck!

mrsbays913 :  Try pregnitude for PCOS.  It’s basically myo-inositol and folic acid that you mix into water.  It’s supposed to help with egg quality, blood sugar regulation and I think it helps regulate your period as well.  I only recently was diagnosed with borderline PCOS (I ovulate regularly, but I have cysts in my ovaries and other classic symptoms), so my Naturopath recommended that I take myo-inositol twice daily.  Another bee posted about pregnitude if you wanted to do a search and see what she had to say.  I believe she conceived quickly after she started taking it.  Good luck!

mrsbays913 :  Maybe get some OPKs and test to see if you are ovulating.  My OB wanted me to use the OPK when I was on clomid to see if it was “working” and if it wasn’t we were going to try something else. They’ll also pinpoint when to BD that month for the best chances so you don’t have to guess based on your period.  Good luck, I hope it happens fast for you! My first took a while but baby #2 only took 1 try (on clomid) so there’s hope for us PCOSers! 🙂

Welcome! I also have PCOS and we’ve been “officially” trying since January. I definitely understand the struggle. I also recommend the HSG if your dr offers it. It will show you a lot, even if just the peace of mind to say “there’s nothing more wrong here”.

mrsbays913 :  I definitely understand that. There’s something to be said for knowing one way or the other, whether the news is what you wanted or not.
