    Default PCOS

    I have PCOS too (never realized how common it was until I was diagnosed and started looking it up). I have been trying to get pregnant for just over a year and have been in fertility treatment since May of this year. My RE started me out on Metformin + Clomid and still nothing in terms of ovulation.

    Next step for me will be Menupur, an injectable hMG with an HCG trigger shot and Intrauteral Insemination.

    I am frustrated that it is taking so much effort to get pregnant (I mean isn't this stuff just supposed to be natural???), but am glad to have options. I am also glad that my dr is taking a more aggressive approach and not keeping me on something that isn't working for a long time.

    I know what you guys are saying about facebook being evil when you're going through fertility issues. It's like, yes, I am happy for all of my friends who are pregnant and have cute little kids, but its also a painful reminder.

    I'm a little late to the party here but did want to agree with everything the previous posters have said. I've been dx'd with PCOS for over 6 years now (just turned 30). We have been trying for a child for almost 2 yrs. I'm sorry for all of the difficulties everyone is having. It can be a pretty lonely road to travel sometimes. You don't really want to wish it on anyone but it's good to know that you aren't the only one.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 16, I am now 42. I was able to conceive my son using only metformin, it can happen.

    GL to everyone dealing with this awful disorder.
