I've posted a few times on this board and I'm not quite sure where to post but you ladies seem so nice and supportive. I'm Jenni and I just turned 30 a few weeks ago. My DH and I have been married almost 6.5 years and have been trying for our first since 2009. I was dx'd with PCOS in 2005 but now there is question that I might not have that at all. We went to an RE in town last May since I figured we were going to have problems based on the PCOS diagnosis. Long story short after countless attempts and maxing out insurance, they told us that our only hope would be IVF. We aren't opposed to that at all but wanted to make sure that we didn't dive head first into something w/o exploring our options (DH is very cautious and calculating - he's a computer science guy). That was January. In the meantime, we had some family issues (his parents' house was destroyed by a tornado, he got a promotion that requires frequent travel at a moment's notice). I've also been experiencing some pretty awful cramps and bleeding and cysts so we know something else is going on. We decided to get a 2nd opinion at a pretty large university hospital nearby. We had our consult last Tuesday where the doctor basically told us that what the other clinic had done didn't "jive" w/ PCOS dx and that we wasted last year and our allotment for medications :confused:. So we are going to try to get to the underlying causes and hope for the best. I had about 4 vials of blood drawn on Monday and we go back on Tuesday to get the results and figure out a treatment plan. Sorry this is so long. Last year was so hard on us and I really longed for a community of support (DH doesn't want to tell a lot of people what's going on so we constantly are getting the "when are you going to have kids?" questions :mad:). I'm looking forward to getting to "know" everyone and cheering you on. Big congrats to those who got BFP and big hugs to those still "in the trenches".
