PCOS

Hi all! I hope that you are having a wonderful tuesday! The doctor called me this morning and said that the blood work i got back last week looks like i have PCOS. I was on cd39 when i went in. But the next day my temps went up and have stayed up! 6dpo today, when i told her that she was shocked! She wanted me to start some meds to get my period going than do clomid. But i am not comfortable doing that when my temps say i ovulated. She agreed so i go in tomorrow for prolactin and progesterone blood draws. I sure hope i did ovulate! I know Gods timing is always perfect even when i want to cry every month haha! Biggrin Anyways i was wondering if anyone else has PCOS or has ever tried Clomid? Thanks for you'r time!:cool:

I never made it to clomid. I was on metformin but I actually got pregnant without help, the bfp was the day before my appointment for clomid. When we tried again due to age we jumped right to injectables. Good luck.

Just reading in. I hope you ovulated on your own. that would be great. i don't know anything about clomid or anything because I haven't had to use any help but that'd be great if your body did it on its own. I'll be lookin for your numbers. Smile

I just used clomid this cycle and had very little side effects. I had one nice sized follicle yesterday at my scan, so it worked! Clomid may help you with ovulating earlier or giving you a stronger o.

PCOS runs in my family. Most of the adult women in my family have it. None of us have ever had normal periods. My dr was sure I did too, but she said my tests seemed to say I don't have it (at least not yet). I've heard of lots of women having luck with metformin and clomid together. Smile

I do take clomid, bcs even though it might not be pcos, i still never ovulate. I have taken the 50mg of clomid twice, and will again this cycle. I did get one bfp already with it! And I ovulated each time. I am thrilled with it honestly! Good luck!!

I saw your thread and wanted to weigh in and maybe give you some hope Smile but I see you already got your BFP! I have PCOS and RARELY ovulate. My last cycle I O'd on CD 60 and a week or so later BFP! My beautiful little miracle is now 2 months old! I also have a 9 year old miracle too!

I too have PCOS and we TTC for 8 years with and without Clomid and an REs help. We gave up two years ago, bought a house, got 4 dogs, and were really happy with our three baby nephews and my 13 yo DD. Then BAM out of the blue I'm pregnant! Anything can happen. I didn't used to believe it and thought I would NEVER be the one to get a surprise, but here we are!

Good Luck and don't give up hope!
