Hello everyone. My husband and I have been TTC for a year now. A little background on that:
Earlier this year I was diagnosed with PCOS. I haven't had regular cycles since going off BCP last year which led to Provera a few times, then Clomid, then Clomid and Metformin (which I didn't take for reasons I'm about to mention). I thought I was in good hands with my OBGYN office. They have an RE on staff. I had rough medical patch a couple years ago (heart scare), so they assured me they would monitor me closely (this was pre PCOS diagnosis). After I was diagnosed it almost seemed like they just wanted to push Clomid and Metformin but didn't care about potential side effects. They even said that new blood work and ultrasounds while taking medication wasn't needed at all. I was upset because I liked the office and thought I was in good hands. On the bright side, I recently found a really good RE in the area and just sent my information packet back to them.
In the last year I've only had one possible ovulation (not actually confirmed, just one really, really obvious LH surge over a couple days), and that was with no medication. That was almost month ago actually... and I got my hopes up, so it stung when AF showed up. I knew the chances were low, and actually thought I was being realistic about the situation. Dang emotions got in the way anyway. That's when I realized how much I missed the friends I made on the TTGP board and the support that we gave one another. (And I'm finally out of that funk I was in for so long.)
Anyway, I hope you'll let me contribute as a member here. I know I have a lot to learn and I appreciate the community. I can't really talk to my family about any of this for drama reasons- meaning my mother is a drama queen. I look forward to "meeting" you all and I wish you all the best of luck.
Side note/question: This may be a stupid question... I was on the TTGP board a while back but then kind of shut down due to some personal issues. I'm starting to get back on that board as well. Things there have changed a bit since I was gone, is it still okay if I participate in both boards? I don't want to step on toes or be rude in any way.
