Hi everyone. Is been about 6 months since I last visited TMP. I didn't know where to put myself bc I don't know where I am in this process. Long story short, I have PCOS. We tried progesterone and Metformin, progesterone and Clomid both to no avail.

Last year our fertility doctor started me on Follistim injections. It took forever to get the "right" dosage for my follicles to grow.

Then it happened. We got a positive PT. A couple weeks later I miscarried. I didn't realize until then how truly drained I was.

That was last June.

Last fall there was a possibility we were adopting 3 children from a troubled relative. Then of course the chaos of the holidays. Right around the time of my previously anticipated due date I fell and sprained both of my knees at the same time leaving me out of commission for a couple months.

Then I had a benign tumor removed from my eye. I've since had a lovely PCOS induced looonnnng period, some other seemingly minor health issues and we just got home from a trip to Colorado for the hubby's 30th.


I'm ready. I'm ready for a baby. I didn't think I've been avoiding the idea until I started to feel that "want" and realized I instantly have tried pushing it away. Bc this time? I don't have ignorance on my side. I know EXACTLY how hard the process is. And I dread it. I just don't even know where to start.

I can't go back to my old fertility doctor. They are wonderful but their closest office is an hour away and I just can't do that again. So I feel like I'm starting at square one. Just feeling discouraged. I don't even know how to pick myself up and tackle this again. But it's time. We are so ready to create our family and its breaking my heart every day I don't muster up the strength to start the process over.


Any advice from those of you who have gotten back on the horse? Thanks for taking the time to read my story

Thanks so much! I didn't mean to post this here and felt bad. It's a bit of a downer for all of those in rainbow land! But hey here's hoping I'm back here soon!

I don't think its a downer, when you get up and keep trying then you have hope and that is what is needed to wish upon a rainbow

Finding the right doctor is so hard!!!!! One will listen to you, work with you

I know this is hard....

Did you ever try IUI ? J know for some insurance if you have PCOS it's covered

Thanks mamanama!

And I agree. Finding the right specialist is half the battle. They can really make or break your spirit during this process.

We haven't tried IUI yet. I think bc the shots got us pregnant last time (despite the fact it didn't stick) we'll go that route once more. And pray. A LOT!
