pcos and ttc

Hey at everyone out there!

  Here's a little background on me....My husband have been trying to conceive on our own for about a year, and recently went to the gyno and started talking about a pregnancy plan. I dont have AF on my EVER! Maybe once a year if that. I was prescribed Provera, and Clomid. Started Provera on September 11, last pill was on the 17th. just got AF yesterday! Never thought Id be so happy for a period! I will start Clomid this Thursday *days 5-9*......only side effect from Provera so far is cramping, but having AF is pretty light so far. 

  Nervous and excited about all of this!

I am 24 and my husband is 26. I am a plus size woman, with pcos. Unfortunately I have a lot of the symptoms including but not limited to excess facial hair, some acne, non-existent cycle. Hoping that Provera/Clomid are a winning combination for us! 

Starting with 10mg Provera -7 days                                                                   50mg Clomid- days 5-9

 This is "the husband". I just want to say thank you to all of you for your assistance and wish us luck!

Re: pcos and ttc

  • I hope you are seeing your Ob/gyn for follow up ultra sounds and blood work. Clomid can have serious side effects expecially a women with PCOS.

    Good luck!

    Me: 26 DH:31
    After a m/c, a year of failed treatments with an RE, and a failed surrogacy option, we are grateful to open our home, heart, and lives to foster children.
    We are hoping to adopt when the timing is right.
    Come on forever child- find us! :)
    P/SAIF DEFINATELY welcomed!!!
  • I also have PCOS. I have never had to use the Provera, for the most part, my period would start anywhere between 28-35 days ( with the exception of a 46 day cycle when I was really stressed) Clomid has given me hot flashes and I am pretty moody,but nothing that I cant handle:) Good luck with everything. You will get good advice from the ladies on this board. Also, I dont know if you recently got the PCOS diagnosis( did not look at your siggy) but my friend bought me a book to read called " PCOS and your fertility" its a pretty good book!
  • yepp, im suppossed to go in the 20th day of my cycle for blood tests!  thanks!

  • i wasnt just now diagnosed...i have suspected it since i was 16 since my older sister has it also and we had very similar symptoms...and was diagnosed about a year and a half ago but we agreed to not start fully trying until we got married which was just about 2 weeks ago, so before now we were just "actively not preventing" alot lol

  • OMG so as I was reading this it sounded like I was the one that wrote it. I literally had to scroll up to make sure I didn't post something and didn't remember. LOL. I've been on provera/clomid since November 2010 just at my gyno's office. We have our first appointment tomorrow with the RE. My doctor tried Clomid 50mg a few times before moving up to 100mg. Since November I have only ovulated once.

    Good luck. I'm pretty new on here so I don't know if you can add someone as a friend to keep in touch, but we definitely keep in touch.

  • it wont let me add friends on here : (
