lilmspiggy :  Oh, okay. That makes sense, I’m on Metformin for mine. Have been for about 2-3 years, and it’s really helped control a lot of my symptoms. Just started BC a few months ago.

lilmspiggy :  after I went off my pill I had the same symptoms only my periods were about 90 days apart and that’s because my Dr gave me medication to actually induce my period. I too was referred to a fertility Dr. I too have PCOS. I do not ovulate on my own. I was given a zero percent chance of conceiving on my because of the PCOS and the fact that I don’t ovulate.ur insurance didn’t cover any testing or a ything so if your doesn’t, be aware the bills are HUGE. We’re around $15k in debt from the procedures and testing alone. We finally saved up enough and decided to go through the IUI process last month. It didn’t work. Devistated was an understatement. Especially when my best friend sent me a text letting me know she was pregnant a few days after my test came back negative and it only took her one try. Great. My husband and I are in our second and final IUI cycle now because we can’t afford to do another one. If it doesnt work this time, we basically don’t get to have a family because we can’t afford it. We’ve been trying for 11 months. I can’t offer you too much support but I can commiserate with you. Its hard not to be bitter when people around you seem to easily get all you ever wanted, and knowing it comes so easy to them. Good luck.
