One step closer to the journey itself

Well, well. My husband and I are one step closer to the journey of TTC. In my teenage years I never thought I would have the problem of infertility. I thought that when I wanted a child, I would simply have one. My mother had 3 kids with no issues as did many of other close relatives. In fact, my aunt had PCOS and still managed to have a somewhat regular mense and 3 kids. Only her daughter and I have had fertility issues, thought they are quite the opposite. She can get pregnant all day long but cannot carry and I just have problems getting pregnant. Here is my story.....

When I was 14 yrs old I started my period. In the beginning, my periods were a but irregular, which is normal. I would have a period about every 2 months and sometimes every months, yet never on the same day, usually a weeks before or after. Well, around the age of 17 to 18 I stopped having periods. I only had a period about once a year. I went to the Dr. when I was 18 and told him i only had a period about every 8 months. He blew me off and said that, for my age, it was normal. It upset me and I never went back...until...

In 2007, at the age of 20, I thought I was pregnant. My best friend also thought she was pregnant and bought 2 tests. I took one and got BFP. Don't get excited, yet. I went to the Dr. and found out I wasn't pregnant. However, he did find cysts on my right ovary and said that cysts can cause a false positive. He told me to come back in 1 month. I never did. A family member who is in the med field that I confided in about my experiences said they I may have PCOS. I googled it and found I had almost EVERY symptom!! It was frightening to think my time may be limited and infertility guarenteed. So i did more and more researched and talked to my aunt who has PCOS and who was RN and she confirmed that she is sure that I have it. I know I do. I have that feeling.

Well, me and my husband decided to take action and get pregnant. My younger sister has a baby and that just put the nail in the coffin for me. I want a baby!! So, we ordered Provera and Clomid and are planning on starting our first cycle this month! I pray and hope it happens for me and for anyone else going through this.
