Hello all! I'm Melissa, I mostly hang out in TTC 1. We have been TTC for about 9 months, with only 2 ovulatory cycles. Well we finally went to see a fertility specialist (RE). I had an HSG, DH had an SA, we both had tons of blood work. Everything came back normal! yay! I have posted here in the past because I have always suspected I had PCOS. Well the RE confirmed, he said I have a mild case of PCOS (whatever that means!), hehe. Most of my hormones were normal, except my LH/FSH ratio was a little elevated.

So the plan from here starting next cycle is to try clomid, cycles 3-7, ultrasound to check follie size, then injectable to ovulate and wait and see.

Thanks for reading ladies!! Hopefully you don't mind if I hang out here too!

We don't mind at all! We love all the personalities and stories! I am Maggie, diagnosed with PCOS when I was 15 after we figured something was wrong when I'd get my period once every 3 months or so. I am 24 and DH is Rob 25. We have been trying 10-11 months with two losses. I hope now that you are on Clomid and have your diagnosis, things will be much more smooth.. Welcome again! Can't wait to get to know you better!

Hi Melissa. I'm Cassandra (26) and DH is Justin (27). I was recently diagnosed with PCOS, after TTC #2 without ovulating or having a period for months at a time. This is a fantastic board, I absolutely love it. Welcome!

I'm the other Amber and I as well am a newbie.
I have been struggling with PCOS for many years I would say shortly after my cycles first started when I was a teenager but was offically diagnosed a few years ago. I am currently TTC#1 and have been on and off with metformin for a couple months. Good luck!
