Hi ladies! I have been reading this board for a few weeks and think it's time for my to quit lurking around and introduce myself! I am Jill (31) and DH is Joe (31) and we have one DS who is 11. I am not new to TTC and I have been participating in the TTC w/ PCOS board for a few months now. (I see some of the same girls here..... ) We have been TTC #2 off and on for about 9 years. More off than on....we have been on a 5 year "break" while DH was in school. In May he is graduating with his RN, BSN so we are ready to board the actively TTC Train again! I was diagnosed with PCOS back when we were first TTC. At that time I tried Met.....tho I wasn't FULLY aware of its effectiveness and gave up too quickly D/T the nasty SE's. I did several rounds of Clomid and one with a trigger....all BFN's....before we had to take a break while DH was in school. Our DS was a TOTAL surprise when I was 18 years old! I have recently found a new Dr. that I (so far) LOVE and am in the process of going thru all the testing. I just had a bunch of bloodwork done which all came back "normal" and am waiting for my next appt. on 2/2 when DH and I go together for our "fertility consult". At that appt. the Dr. said we will be discussing a SA on DH and Lap/HSG for me. After that he told us we will be trying 3-6 cycles of Clomid. Based on previous experience I don't believe that Clomid works for me.....I didn't "o" on it before.....and I wanted to go straight to Letrozole. But he said a lot can change in 5 years and he would like us to try it again first and if it doesn't work then we will try the Letrozole. I am looking forward to "meeting" all of you and getting to know you and share our journies together!
Thank you so much AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!!

Hey, Jill! Welcome to our group!

My name is Melissa (27), and I am one of the co-hosts of this board. DH is 29, and we are TTC #1 with unexplained infertility. I'm glad that you decided to come out of hiding; I think you'll find a lot of love and support here for your TTC journey! If you have any questions about the meds or procedures you'll be doing, feel free to ask...between all of us we have pretty much done everything, and we'll be more than happy to help.

I hope that your stay here is short and that we can celebrate your BFP very soon!


Melissa & DH
IVF babies Claire (5), Abigail (3) and George (3)

Hi Jill!! I'm Laci (21) DH is Michael (22).We've been ttc#1 since Jan 07'. I'm also new to the board I've been on JM for the last 2 years through my long journey of ttc I had a little break from the boards for a couple of months. Today was my first appointment with the infertility specialist. I was prescribed Clomid50mg to take on CD5-10. We dont know for sure why I have wacky cycles and sometimes don't O so we are hoping and praying that Clomid will gives us the baby we desperately wish for. I've watched 4 of my SIL's get pg two are about to have their babies. Plus numerous friends and relatives!! I wish you luck on ttc and look forward to get to know you

Hi and welcome!

I am 28 and my DH will be 33 next week!

We each have a 6.5 year old from previous relationships. We've been TTC our first child together for over a year now and I was diagnosed with tubal scarring in November of this past year. My right tube is totally blocked, but my left is semi-open. We are trying 2-3 rounds of IUI and then moving onto IVF.

I hope you love this forum---I have found it to be such a great, supportive group!

Welcome! My name is Stephanie (25) and DH is Adam (28). We have been TTC for 2 years. We did get pregnant after 6 months of trying, but m/c at 7w2d. We just started infertility treatments in Sept. 2008. I was diagnosed with PCOS and hypothyroidism. I did 3 rounds of Clomid with IUI's all failed. This month we are doing injectables w/ IUI so we will see.

Hope yo aren't here long!
