    I'm going out of my mind anxious! Going over blood work and deciding next steps. Probly not a big deal, but I really stress myself! We'll see!

    I have to ask. At what point does your main dr stop helping and send you on to someone else?
    Will they try clomid, or metformin, or hsg, or do they just refer you out?

    At your stage I would ask to be referred to a RE. Have you been seeing an OB/GYN up to this point? You have been trying for a couple of years, you have PCOS and you are not getting younger (although that would be awesome if we could reverse our ages). Because of how thing work here I had to be referred to a new OB/GYN (my old one was retiring), wait 6 months to see him, be referred to the fertility clinic, wait 6 months for that appointment. Now things are finally happening a year after I first saw the new OB.

    Ok. I didn't even have to ask. She said I should go to one. This dr says she is pretty sure I don't have PCOS like my previous dr seemed to really think. The tests she ordered came back and she says my hormones are not nearly the right level for PCOS, and my sugars are totally normal. So. Now no one knows why I'm not getting pregnant.

    I'm really pretty upset about this. Which is odd. I should be happy I don't have PCOS right?? But if it was PCOS, there are so many options to try and lots of woman are in the same boat, and have success stories to share. But with just not knowing what the heck is going on, what now? She said my charts don't look like I'm ovulating, but maybe I am, and the symptoms are just very light, and obviously I wouldn't be ovulating normally on schedule, since my periods are so freaking random.

    Tom and I did a self test for him, and he seems fine. We will have a real work up at the RE i guess too. He is getting iffy, because he worries about my depression, and he doesn't want me to deal with huge ups and downs that can really put me down. But it won't make me feel any better to just stop trying!

    Just bummed. Sorry to rant.

    Totally understand!

    As much as I am glad you don't have PCOS..I know its a night mare to still have no answers.
    Something is better than nothing because then you can get treated right? and have a game plan.

    With the possible 'no ovulation'...have they said they will try something to kick start that?
    Or will they go into more detailed tests to see?

    Huge hugs to you.
    I totally understand.

    Not knowing what is causing the problem is very frustrating for sure! An RE will definitely do a full workup on both you and your husband. I have a friend who was not ovulating and having really long cycles. She doesn't have PCOS either. Clomid worked for her. She conceived her first 3 children with the help of Clomid and the 4th they conceived unexpectedly. I hope the RE helps and you get your BFP soon!

    That's exactly. I had ideas and options before, now I'm not sure. I hope they will. She thought it was best I just go to the RE instead of her trying anything.

    Thank you so so much! I really needed to hear a nice success story about a case like mine



    You ladies are wonderful. Thank you for the chin up.

    PCOS has so many symptoms and variances that it might still be PCOS. My hormone levels change month to month but I was diagnosed when I was 16, 21, 31, 41... there are women with "skinny" pcos (I have a friend like that). The RE will most likely send you for more blood work. I have had pcos testing on day 3 and day 21.

    Hugs and I really hope that you see the RE soon and they have good news for you!

    Thank you

    I guess I'm mostly upset because if I'm going to an RE that means it's a real problem, and maybe it won't ever happen because it's such a problem. Still stressing today. Hope they let me know soon, then at least I know when I"m going in. Does anyone know how successful it all is, as far as women that have to see an RE that get pregnant? I mean they usually say that 80 percent get pregnant in a year, and 89 in two years... so does that mean i'm doomed if it didn't happen??
