I'm not sure how to start but here we go....
My name is Melissa, I'm 26, and my husband and I are trying to conceive but I have PCOS. I should tell you that I have known from high school that I have PCOS, however, at the time it was a condition that no one really cared to treat until they were ready to have children. But now they know differently.
But I really started to notice big changes shortly after I met my now husband 3 years ago. I started noticing dark thick hair growth, acne, and I used to have an irregular period about every 2-3 monts however in the last several years I'm lucky to get two periods a year.
My husband and I wanted to start a family right away after we got married I new this ahead of time so of course I looked to my OBGYN before we even got married, at the time she put me on just metformin assuming that by the time I got married and really ready for children maybe it would do the trick, but it didn't shortly after we were married she put me on my first doses of provera and then clomid. We started out at 25 mg now almost 10 months later I am on 150 mg of clomid, and the horrible thing is, is that I have not once ovulated in the time that we were married in september up to this date.
Luckily I am being sent to a reproductive endocrinologist in a few weeks and I am hoping that it will help us in starting a family.
After watching so many friends and family start famlies of their own, although I am happy for them, I do experience a great amount of jealousy. I have even hit the point that I will not go to diaper parties and sometimes not even baby showers, I have even walked out of church once because they were doing a baptism. Doesn't that sound horrible of me?
It really hurts when my husband's family if fertile myrtle each having at least 4 children! And they keep asking why we aren't trying because "its so easy, you are just doing something wrong" I guess I am just at this point that I am mentally exhaused keeping this all in and just need someone to tell this to and this looked like a good place to do it... I hope.
