My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about 9-10 months. We took about a 2 month break in there and started using condoms again when he lost his job, but we weren't really regular with that, not like I was having any luck conceiving anyhow...
Anyhow. I have PCOS... not sure how bad really though (I have history of cysts, weight gain, hair growth and insulin resistance). I have a prolactin producing pituitary tumor which I have been treated for since August 2008. I have mild type 2 diabetes caused by the tumor. I have Hashimotos Thyroid which is under control. (also probably related tot he tumor). And they are checking for Cushings (also caused by tumor) because of weight gain.
Is it possible to have cervical mucus changes and cramping during the time of assumed ovulation without the egg actually releasing? My cervical mucus is the way it should be during ovulation. I have cramps and all that jazz. I feel like I am spinning my wheels trying to get pregnant. My husband and I have a healthy sexual relationship with it happening about 4-5 times every week. You'd think I'd hit the right time in there sometime!
PS. I have a 7.5 year old son that I was able to conceive with tracking ovulation over a few months and one try of sex during the week I knew I'd be ovulating. No problems then!
to have sex every second day is helpful, too much sex lesser quality of sperm. Try to relax more, do not think about it so much.............we all have some medical problems, some miracles happens, instead we should enjoy life and things might happend............good luck........i am trying to get pregnant i am 40 no kids and last year got diagnosed with painful endometriosis...............and believe I still have hope................Live is unpredictable...............do not give up////
LOL. I don't think you understood my question. I wasn't really concentrating on our sex frequency or anything to that matter. We have sex at our frequency not just for baby making, but because that is just the way of our relationship. :-P It was actually more frequent when I was still on Loestrin.
I am relaxed and actually a little nervous of "what if I actually do get prego?" LOL. I am just curious about ovulation with PCOS and will I still have symptoms if the egg never releases.
PS. I have endometriosis and even though the dr's thought it would take me quite awhile to conceive my first son, I did with only one try. The symptoms have lessened a lot since his birth, so I don't really talk about it much anymore. :-)
