Hi ladies! I was a member of the T-TTC board in 2006-2007. I have PCOS and hypothroidism. H and I are TTC # 3.
I got pregnant with DD #1 after seeing an RE for 5.5 months and being put on clomid for 1 cycle. I developed a cyst that cycle, and got pg with DD #1 on a break cycle waiting for my cyst to desolve.
I got pg with DD # 2 when DD # 1 was 8 months old. I was breast feeding and got pg the first time I O'ed after giving birth.
I just stopped taking BCP last week. My new (since having DD # 1) insurance will not cover my visits to my RE because PCOS is considered a medical condition and not an IF problem, plus H and I haven't been TTC for 12 months. I will be using OPK only this month. If I find that I'm not O'ing in the next couple of months then H and I will pay out of pocket to see our RE because he is great and we feel very comfortable with him.
ETA: Sorry for the errors in spelling and run on sentences!
Welcome to the board. I hope your stay is short and sweet! I also have PCOS and hypothyroidism. DH and I had insurance coverage for the RE the first time around and we also don't this time around, so we are 100% OOP. Because of that, we are going to try on our own w/ charting & OPK until this spring, and then head to the RE to get some help.
Moving on as a family of 3
