Except when I examined my numbers, my LH was over 2x my FSH (despite each being independently in normal ranges), and my estrogen was at the low end of normal, and my testosterone was at the high end of normal. My ovulation is extremely irregular even with those small deviations, and my guess is that pcos, especially milder pcos, is probably more common than we think.

I'm excited for your IUI! You know I am going to be lurking this forum for your beautiful BFP next month !!!

ETA: also congrats on your repeat SA being normal! I just knew it was a fluke that first time!!!
I'm so happy to hear from you!! Thank you for telling me this. My LH:FSH ratio is my only problem as well. My LH is double my FSH. It's very encouraging to know you had this issue and now you're pregnant! I've been feeling so down lately and doubting my chances of getting pregnant. I keep reading online about how thin PCOSers are harder to treat. I'm very anxious for the coming weeks... Please stick around! I'll definitely need your support!! How are you doing!?
