Well I am glad you got in to see a doctor.

I am in a similar boat to where you were so I feel your frustration. I have known I had PCOS since I was 13 and the last I saw my doctor on CD25 it looked as if I had O’d on CD19. The next day my temps dropped 🙁 She told me not to let me cycle go past CD35 without a period. CD35 came and went without AF. I called her to set up an appt. and I couldn’t get one until SEPT 6th – C’MON!!!! So here I am CD75 and very frustrated.

I hope the meds work well for you and provera doesn’t cause you too much pain. I can’t wait until I can get to the doctor and get some meds myself. My body keeps teasing me with spotting and then disappearing!!! So frustrating.

PM me if you ever want to talk about your frustrations! 

ETA: I am also jealous of you that you told your mom. I haven’t told mine yet. Not because I don’t want her to know but that I am so frustrated with my body not doing what it’s supposed to I am not ready to talk to her about it yet.

Aside from the unpleasant ultrasound (don’t guys know it hurts to “dig” around up there!?) it sounds like it went pretty well.  Although you don’t quite have a diagnosis, you do have a plan and that’s a good thing.

I think it’s great that you told you mom.  When I was actively TTC (several failed rounds of Femara/Clomid and my Darling Husband having a blockage, we’re now taking a year off), it was so great to have a support system to talk to when things got rough.  I couldn’t have imagined not having someone to share those rough feelings with. 

I went through a lot to get where I am (mentally and physically) so feel free to PM me if you have any questions or need to chat!

@JewishBride: I’m sorry you’re going through this. And I think it’s great that you’re telling your mom…moms can be good support in this. I had my first infertility consult last week and I had an unltrasound, similar instructions (take blood and sperm tests) and she told me to try another 6 months (it’s been 13 months) with ovulations tests. Next step is clomid too. I have irregular cycles and they are about 28-47 days. She said that is most likely the reason we can’t get pregnant yet. So, best wishes to you and hope you conceive soon! We are here for you!

I wanted to send lots of good thoughts your way, I know this is a long frustrating struggle, but too important not to pursue.

You are not alone! But isn’t finding a great doctor who knows right away something is up a great feeling? Feel free to PM me if you ever want to talk, I have been dealing with the treatment/waiting for a few months now.

@JewishBride: Yeah, it sucks. I always think hey maybe I’m late but then I realize no this is probably just another long cycle. I think I’ve only had 1 or 2 28 day cycles in my life. I hope you get pregnant soon too!! And I hope your talk with your mom went well. Keep us updated!
