Hi there. I've been lurking on this board for a while and am usually on the TTC >35 board.
We've been TTC our first since Feb 2010 (DH has a 7 yo daughter from 1st marriage). I've always had really long cycles (60+ days). I've been doing OPKs since we started TTC. Went to RE Sept 2010 and took all the usual tests. Slightly low SA for DH, but not really terrible. They couldn't figure out why I don't ovulate and have a long cycle. RE immediately wanted to do IUI due to our age. We felt that we need to examine why my cycles are so messed up vs. forcing my body to do something it isn't wanting to do. Been doing pre-natals, fish oil, and acupuncture (love, love, love acupuncture).
Finally went to my endocrinologist in March and insisted on having every test they could think of. DX = PCOS. WTF. No cysts on my ovaries, so they never thought to check it. My androgens are high and I'm pre-diabetic. The other symptoms - some hair loss and a ten lb weight gain - never made us come to that conclusion. So, I started taking Metformin last month (in addition to Femara every month) and we'll see if this will finally do it.
Anyway, sorry to write a whole novel. Just venting a bit.
