I posted a couple weeks ago outlining my fertility issues--but the crux of them seem to be PCOS and/or endometriosis. I am almost 26 years old, was diagnoses with PCOS (and possible hypothyroidism) about 10 years ago, and the endo was diagnosed through laproscopy about 4 years ago. I've been off an on birth control, synthroid, and metformin since then. I got pregnant over the summer and had a miscarriage. Since then, my cycles have been even more irregular-- I've had...
Update: I went into PP for my exam today and was told two weeks ago over the phone that if I was a full-time student with no income of my own that I would qualify for funding. I didn't realize that it was funding from the federal government and apparently if you are not seeking birth control you are not elligible to even have an annual exam!

Last June, while on the pill I began pregnant. At my ten week check up the Nurse Midwife was unable to find a heartbeat,...
Hi. I'm 25 and TTC after my first miscarriage this past summer. I have PCOS and endometriosis which both cause my periods to be extremely far and few between, as well as completely and utterly unpredictable. My partner and I have been TTC since the miscarriage. I've been attempting to chart BBT and using OPKs with no luck. I have an appointment tomorrow for my annual and hoping to ask the doctor what our options are. I've always wanted children and am excited to be...
