actually, didn't get to see the doctor, just had some lab work done. I had a gluclose/insulin test (they had a better name for, but i can't remember what it is.)It was a 2-hour test and they drew blood 4 times (twice from each arm) Anyway, I go back next friday for the results and to see where we can go from there. Although I still don't wuite understand what gluclose levels have to do with ovulating. Basically, that's the problem we're trying to figure (why I'm not ovulating and pretty much not having periods) I just want some answers.

Well, insulin/glucose testing is usually a sign that your DR thinks you may have PCOS. PCOS cysters typically will have some sort of insulin resistance. And cysters are usually anovulatory with very few periods in a year.

Here are some resources from the TTC with PCOS board

What is PCOS?

At any rate, I hope you can figure out what's going on. That way, you have a better chance of conceiving.

Good luck with a BFP!!!
