Trouble TTC

Introduction

Hi all, 

 

I joined this site awhile back but left for quite awhile. Time to re-introduce myself and try to get to know all of you amazing ladies.

I'm 25, my husband is 27. We have been TTC for over 4 years now. I have PCOS and am using metformin (1500mg/day) and will be starting clomid again this fall. In the meantime we have our three furry babies (Marley: german shepherd/mastiff mix, Max: boxer/lab mix, and Maggie: german shepherd/golden retriever mix) who we very much love, and spoil as our "kids".   

 Since this fall we're finally going "all in" with fertility treatments, I thought Id become active in this community again, and learn whatever i can.

 Hoping the best for everyone here!
