Hi all! I'm new here so I wanted to introduce myself. DH and I got married in 2011. My sister struggled with infertility for 2 years so I thought if I just charted, got off the pill early etc. that I wouldn't have the same problems. How silly I was thinking that I had complete control over this. I went off the pill a year before we started TTC and had very irregular and long cycles and started charting so I could figure out what was going on. We started TTC 15 months ago and since then my cycles have become more regular. Most are between 28-35 days. I did take Vitex for 6 months so I'm not sure if that helped or they just regulated on their own. We used OPKs and cervical mucus to time intercourse, used preseed and charted to confirm ovulation but month after month got BFNs. Finally saw an RE in June. He diagnosed me with PCOS based on ultrasound, acne and high AMH level. Everything else for me and DH came back normal. I've always heard that PCOS causes infertility due to not ovulating so I feel confused (and a bit hopeless) why I'm not getting pregnant if I am ovulating every month. Set to do Letrozole/IUI cycle in August. Excited to be a part of this community!
