@LadyMillil Good news? How do you feel about that? I think it's positive that you have a large follicle?
WAYDTGKU: PNV. HBC x3 weeks, then Letrozole, then U/S, then HIO, then progesterone, then we will see.
R/R/CS: Before I dive into my drawn out
post about my referral appointment today, I just want to say how amazing this
community is and how helpful it has been to hear about everyone's experiences
(good and bad). I don't think I would have been able to keep it together nearly
as well today if I hadn't already been following many of your journey's and
gone in with an open mind and was informed about the process.
So, exactly 4 months
into TTC and I have a PCOS diagnosis! I honestly would have been completely
shocked if that wasn't the outcome of today, and am actually so relieved to
have a scientific based answer to why I'm not ovulating and haven't been able
to get pregnant so far. If I hadn't pushed for this referral I would probably
be in this same place 8 months from now and would have regretted not going
sooner. I wasn't sure what to expect at this appointment but we got right down
to business! Doctor took a history, reviewed my hormone study (which showed
LH:FSH 2:1 which is diagnostic for PCOS and NOT perfectly normal as my original
Doctor told me when releasing my bloodwork as having no significant findings!),
did a vaginal ultrasound which showed
multiple follies around 0.47mm size (small + not maturing) which is also classic PCOS.
Made a plan to start
back on birth control for 3 weeks, then will start Letrozole 3 days after that,
then have ultrasounds as needed, timed intercourse, then progesterone on CD 22
and will go from there. Had the rest of the recommended bloodwork done today as
well. Again thanks to this board, I was prepared for the "prenatal
questionnaire" and multiple lab techs asking how far along I was so the
comments didn't cut quite as deep. That will determine if anything else is
wrong, and if I have to add in metformin based on my glucose test.
GTKY: I'm a big chicken and don't like to do
anything particularly daring. I feel like I've always been like this. I'm the
person on the sidelines cheering everyone else on while they do daring things!
@meilay Congrats on
the new job!
suppose they ask you that because it could be dangerous going on the meds if
you were pregnant? No idea. When I went for my bloodwork today (prenatal
bloodwork for a PCOS diagnosis) I was asked how far along I was. Then after I
explained that I wasn't actually pregnant and had sat down, I heard another lab
tech say "Awkward- I'm not asking her to fill that out". A few
minutes later I was handed the form to go along with the glucose tolerance
testing which asked: How many pregnancies have you had? How many live births?
How far along are you? What hospital do you plan on delivering at? I put my
name, signed and answered zero/na to all the questions. Boo.
so much. Yes I am very happy to be moving forward. I will be a few weeks behind
you so will be following closely -in a creepy internet stranger way:) What are
the Novarel and Progesterone pieces of your treatment for? Will you be taking one
letrozole 2.5mg or two to start? Are you still planning to temp and use OPKs?
If this is too medical or you don't want to respond on here maybe shoot me a
