Welcome!! You will find that the ladies here are great, helpful, super supportive, and best of all they understand Smile I also have be diagnosed with PCOS and I never have the typical pearl like cysts that can be seen on US. PCOS can sometimes just be about ratios of different hormones and sometimes the cysts, or follicles can only be seen at certain times durring your cylce.......Hope that helps. Anywho, I hope that your stay here is short and sweet and that your new injectable cocktail will do the trick for you!! Smile

Hi amanda

so sorry its me so long to greet you!
Lovely to meet you!
A friend of mine has very mild PCOS and has never had cysts or anything.
I hope your numbers have gone up and as Carissa said I hope that your official stay here is short but sweet but you can still hang out with us.
Let us know how you are doing!

When I did 1 cycle of injectibles with IUI... I think my numbers were about the same. With the increased dose, you should see a rise in your E2. I would always start off slow and then I would just skyrocket toward the end of my cycle.

Just keep hoping because anything can happen Smile *HUGS* Good luck and KUP!

Hey Amanda!

Welcome! I had the same thing happen when I did injections - I have PCOS quite badly. My E2 levels would be low low low and then they would shoot up out of normal range - it's a crazy rollercoaster! My other side effect on the meds was weight gain (100lbs in total over 3 yrs!)

I hope your stay here is short n' sweet but like the others said, I hope you stay to chat Smile

Hi Amanda. So sorry you have to be on this board, but we are happy to have the company here.

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to all the PCOS and hormone stuff you are going through, but just wanted to say best of luck to you. The ladies here are so sweet and so wonderful. And like you said, sometimes you just need to vent.

Hope your stay here is short and sweet. In the meantime enjoy an iced mocha latte. :cuppajoe:

Good luck Amanda! Glad you found us here, all the ladies here are very understanding and supportive. It's just been 2 yrs TTC #2 for me as well, so I sort of understand your frustrations.

And please - vent away!! That is what we are all here for - to vent and to support. Smile
