Just wanted to introduce myself - I'm Jessica, 27 years old. Been TTC for 3 years. Here's a couple things about my "journey":
I've been diagnosed with PCOS, vitamin D deficiency, etc.
Intra-Uterine ultrasound turned out clear - everything looks normal
Currently taking 1000 mg Metformin per day, plus a 1 a day, magnesium, extra folic acid, extra Vit D, fish oil
I saw a new OB and indicated that I wanted help getting pregnant. She prescribed the Metformin and tested 1AC and 21 day progesterone. A1c within normal range. All signs are pointing to me not ovulating.
Hubby went for a semen analysis today.
I'm temping and just started OPKs. My temp seems erratic so far, and my OB said OPKs likely won't work well for me due to the PCOS.
OB set me up with a dietitian and said that she won't help me with chlomid or any other steps until I lose 40 lbs, and likely a RE won't want to work with me until I lose even more.
working out 3x a week and trying to keep my carbs complex and in check.
Any other ladies out there TTTC with PCOS? What else are you doing and what supplements are you taking? Sometimes taking my supplements in the morning (even with food) makes me nauseous.
Hope to get to know you all. It's nice to have an outlet. I've also made a commitment to try to discuss this more with friends and family to try to make it less "taboo," especially when they like to ask unwelcome questions about when we're going to have a baby. Good luck to everyone
