So we have been ttc for 2 years now. My doc has done FSH, LH, and Insulin Resistance Testing. Hormones were normal and glucose was a tad high. So, she put me on Metformin (working up to 1500mg) My AFs weren't regular by any means and I wasn't ovulating. The last 3 months have been normal like clockwork but no O. What's next? What tests are usually given if I don't conceive within [I]another[I] six 6 months?

I would say after all the other testing, and 3 months and you're still not Oing, that they would do some more testing right away.

I agree. I wouldn't be waiting. It's already been more than two years. Testing and new meds.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

Sorry, I wasn't clear before...here's the history.

First Child/Pregnancy: 2004 Chronic Hypertension
IUD after baby #1 removed Jan 2009
2010 No ovulation, sporadic AFs
Jan 2011 Hormones Normal, Insulin Resistant, Metformin started

I've only been on the Met since Jan 1. My AFs regularized in October without meds most likely because I dropped 15 lbs while dieting. She gave me the Metformin hoping it would help me to lose weight and because my fasting glucose numbers were a little high.

My question is....What tests should be done now?
