About Me: Female, 27, MK, United Kingdom, member since Nov 2012
I've been a member for 5 years, but made this new account as the last one I couldn't get back into :P four long eventful years of TTC!
Myself and my amazing husband have been married 4 1/2 years but together for 7 years now! We are praying 2013 will finally be the year to buy a house and Finally conceive a baby we've wanted for so many years now!
After only 5 cycles in 12 months in 2012, finally sought advice and scheduled first tests:
5th December 2012: Blood tests to test for PCOS primarily but also being run for everything. Swabs to rule out bacterial infection etc etc.
11th December 2012: blood test all normal! Doctor believes I do have PCOS as T levels are quite high. Already recommends metformin to start after ultrasound
Ultrasound to look at ovaries: Monday 14th January 11.40am.
Ovulated in December 2012! 32 day cycle - back to normal. Praying I'm lucky in January and we can catch that egg if my luck is in :) C'mon ovaries be lucky!!
7th January 2013 - joined slimming world to see if it helps me ovulate. I have at least 4 stone to lose to be safely into the healthy zone :(
7th February 2013- 41 day cycle so far, diagnosed today with borderline PCOS. Back for progesterone test and waiting for DH to go for sperm analysis. FX March is a better month
20th Feb 2013 - Progesterone test result: 27. I ovulate but it's very late ovulation. Waiting for SA
6th April 2013 - SA appointment came through today, booked for 7th May. Ball is rolling slowly but surely!
30th April 2013: positive OPK at CD28!! Better late than never! May now make good time for my tests, FX!
21st May 2013: SA results came back normal!!! Next I get referred to gynae and wait for appointment date
19th June 2013 - gynae appointment for consultation. HSG scheduled for next CD10! Metformin scheduled to start following cycle after! Bring it on yay!
8th July 2013 - HSG 2.30pm. All clear, metformin starting next cycle at long last!!
26th July 2013- finally completed our house purchase after 4 1/2 months of stress.
29th July 2013- started Metformin 500mg once a day
5th August 2013 - Metformin 1000mg a day
12th August 2013 - Metformin 1500mg a day until we conceive!
19th December 2013: CD35 and didn't catch ovulation this cycle...where and when was it?!! Have decided to do OPKs and BBTs religiously as soon as CD1 hits...it's all systems go for 2014!!
Gynae - 12th February appointment to catch up
Positive OPK a definite on 14th March - first time we have BD'd on OPK day instead of 3 days before etc so my fingers are CROSSED.
Positive OPK CD26 on 10th July
3rd September went back to gynaecologist on 4 metformin pills a day/2000mg a day and start 50g of clomid a day for 5 days next cycle. Progesterone blood test for next cycle too.
November 2014 - gmfirst clomid cycle 50mg CD2-6 ovulated CD20 but ended BFN :(
5th December 2014 second clomid cycle now, on 100mg + 2000mg metformin. CD13 so far and testing for ovulation!
4 cycles of clomid then if unsuccessful he will refer for ovarian drilling then IVF??? Let's hope it doesn't come to either of those!!
17th September 2015 - no clomid anymore, still 2000mg clomid, just ovulated CD15. Waiting for next gynae app November 2015 where we will start the IVF consultation process :(
Hi again!! I am excited to hear about the upcoming IVF! I hope you don’t need it and that this cycle will prove successful but either way, I hope you get that much awaited BFP soon! I can understand how your husband feels, like maybe there is something wrong with him. That’s how I felt anyway after I miscarried. I hope he doesn’t hold onto any negative thoughts for too long. The body is so mysterious and there are so many reasons why it doesn’t work the way we want it to sometimes. Anyway, here’s to 2016 BFP one way or another!! :-D
