So I may not have told the truth 100%. Please don't hate me.

He wanted me to stop breastfeeding for 8 weeks then call him. I've been done breastfeeding completely for only about a week. BUT I did have somewhat of a period over a month ago and tried the soy with no luck. I'm not saying that my body is back to "normal", but here's the thing. His 8 weeks out rule is what he says for normal patients, not patients that have pcos and had trouble the first time.

Sometimes my doctor irritates me. He's really nice and helped a lot the first time and I did my whole birth plan the way I wanted, but I think he has a lot of patients and doesn't exactly remember everyone's situation and he must not keep good notes or something. He saw that we had talked before, but didn't recall that I even had PCOS or needed the trigger to ovulate last time. So when we started talking about that, he said "Oh well do you want to go back to the specialist right away" and I told him no, I'll try the clomid by itself, mostly because I'm in tax season and don't have the time to go to the specialist, but I think if it doesn't work the first time, I'll call and ask about going to the specialist.

I'll be honest, I'm a nurse... and I don't always tell the Doc 100% of the truth... as long as I know its not going to hurt me physically.... Maybe you should just go to the RE, he might have different ideas of how long to wait... but I will also let you know my old boss (from when I was a nanny) went through this whole thing. They did IVF a total of 3 times, the third time they got a sticky bean.. Then not a year later she got pregnant accidentally and totally naturally.. It ended in m/c but she got pregnant again in like 3 months and carried full term.. Then they even had an ooops..

Soo long story short, pregnancy can actually change how your body works... so you may want to chart and temp for a month before doing the Clomid...

Of course this is only my

Thank you for your opinion. I just have to say I'm getting a little tired of hearing, well maybe it'll happen naturally for you this time. I would love nothing more than to conceive naturally, no fertility meds. My mom tried to have kids for almost 10 years before she finally got pregnant with me. Then she amazingly got pregnant 3 months after I was born with my brother. I've heard that type of story from several other people and that's great and I would love that. But all my PCOS symptoms are back, I've never once had a normal period even when I wasn't overweight. I just think my body is messed up and I will always need some help in that area.

I don't think lying to your doctor is a bad thing in this situation...i mean essentially it's your body anyway.

What I would do...I would probably ask for the Clomid RX and then give yourself a couple of months to try naturally and let your hormones totally regulate, and then you have the clomid on hand when you feel ready to take it. Breastfeeding can cause so many changes to your body I would hate for you to do 3 months of clomid when your body isn't going to respond, you know what I mean?

My period came back at exactly 2 months post partum - to the day - but it took me another 10 months (to the day!) to get pregnant. I got pregnant on brylie's first bday, despite having 6 cycles. I just don't think my body was at that point where it was going to be able to maintain a healthy pregnancy before that, you know?

Chels - The problem is I won't have any cycles in those couple of months. I had somewhat of a period and tried the soy which I think my body responded to and then no ovulation. I just don't want to wait around for nothing just to have to go back to fertility meds all over again. I might as well try the clomid now and see how it goes. I'm pretty sure even on clomid, nothing will happen because it didn't happen before.

Have you tried acupuncture? I did it for 2 months (about 8 treatments?) and got my BFP. I'm convinced it was that + soy + my body being ready.

No, but I'd be willing to try. Did you have issues with ovulation before?

I don't think that lying would necessarily cause harm, but I think it could waste cycles. The thing is once you totally wean your hormones may go completely bonkers. That could result in ovulating on your own or negating the effects of the Clomid. It could mean a higher dose works too well and you end up with hyperstimulation. He may want you to wait 8 weeks so the results will be more predictable.
