Hi there! Just joined Just Mommies but have been viewing the website since I got pregnant with my first in Dec 2012. Starting to TTC #2 so have been viewing again a lot lately. I have what is referred to as "thin" PCOS. I am 5'3" and 125lbs and no problems with insulin resistance. I do however have the polycystic ovaries and higher androgen levels. When TTC #1, after 1 year of irregular periods I went to an infertility specialist and the PCOS was diagnosed. Prior to having been on BC for 10 years I always had normal periods every month. They tried two rounds of Clomid (no injections), but both were unsuccessful. My progesterone level went from 0.4 to 0.5 (it is supposed to go above 4.0 to say that you ovulated). They then tried me on Femara. It worked the 1st round but I ovulated later than expected (day 18) so missed it. The second round, I knew exactly when to anticipate ovulation and it happened on day 18 again (progesterone level of 36) and thus got my BFP. Just went off birth control this cycle. I'm 5 DPO now so in the waiting game. Going to try things naturally this time. I should cut back on my carbs/sweets (I'm an addict) but not that desperate just yet. I also started Pregnitude about 1 week before stopping my birth control. So I'm trying to see if that works. Since I do not have problems with insulin resistance I have only been taking it once daily. If that doesn't work, I will increase to twice daily to see if it helps regulate my cycles without meds.
Good luck! And don't give up hope or get stressed. With time, good things will happen!
