QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
My doctor did blood work on me, I was having pregnancy symptoms and the test was negative, it turns out my estrogen level is higher than my progesterone and I have polycystic syndrome. She said that means I am not ovulating. And that’s why I had trouble conceiving the 2 children I have now. It took us 7 months to get pregnant with our 2 year old.
