    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*

  • Hi @hopingandpraying99 ! Sorry for the confusion about the intros. Welcome to TTGP! I also have PCOS, also most likely starting my 2nd letrozole cycle with my RE. Feel free to jump into the daily WTO/TWW threads (depending on where you are in your cycle) or if you just want to ask a question you can post in the monthly Chart Stalk/Questions thread instead.

    Just getting started, NTNP
    WAYDTGKU: temping, PNV, prenatal diet from Dr. Lu getting ready to get pregnant book, working on weight loss from first pregnancy (DS 21 months)
    About Me: I did a lot of lurking when ttgp in 2016. I’m kind of shy/anxious and never joined in, but I credit this forum with leading me to TCOYF which helped me sort out my 75-90 day cycles (and really taught me everything I should have known about my body 15 years ago) and advocate for testing for a pcos dx. However, after giving birth to my son in 2017, I now have totally regular 30 day cycles, which no one can explain. I’m relieved though, and hoping it will make this attempt easier. I’m looking forward to participating and offering support to others on the ttgp journey.

    I have heard of this, actually. This is second hand, so make of it what you will. A couple relatives of mine see a holistic/functional medicine women's health MD for whatever issues they have. One of these relatives was trying to get pregnant. This doctor told her he does see this. Not all the time, of course, but often enough to be noticeable and more than a one-off fluke where a woman will have a baby, and it's almost a "reset" for their body and issues they had in the past fade or disappear. It's interesting!
