Thank you all for your support and encouragement and thoughts yesterday, it was a tough day. I have been diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which is a hormone imbalance that makes it more difficult to conceive. It actually feels a relief to know for certain and also very sad.
However the consultant has put me straight on drugs- metformin to regulate my hormones and clomid to stimulate ovulation. Anyone any experience of either? I will start them when AF arrives at the end of the week (probably!). I hope this might be the little zing we need to get pregnant ;-)
The consultant also told me that the due test showed one if my tubes was fine but she couldn't see the other one properly to say whether it's ok or not, so she offered a laparoscopy. I am really unsure as it sounds to be quite major surgery. Mamablue- did you have one??
Finally she is much more action orientated than the last consultant and offered IUI or IVF (we get IUI and one free round of IVF on our national health service). I don't know about this. I guess I want to try the drugs first, although it's good to know I can call on other options I that doesn't work. My head was spinning last night!
I spoke to my BF this morning and she's unexpectedly pregnant with #3!! It's a big shock as it took her 3 years and IVF with #2!! I'm delighted for her and now more than ever I want to be pregnant so we can go trough it together!!
What a whirlwind week!!
Mare- sorry to hear its stressful at your mums. Keep your hand on your tummy, stay calm and look after yourself. Has DH started his new job yet?
Wengrin- good journey back from NY. I'm so pleased you are passed those panic attacks and life got so much better with your DH and DS joining your life :-) did DS enjoy the trip? I guess dd will be excited to have you home. Travel safely.
Chuord- your body is very determined about what it wants, good for you. Big hugs on the past. You are such a strong person. I hope this new healing will open your body to that LO waiting to join you and DH :-)
Mamablue- hope you're still chilling and enjoying that LO. It makes me smile so much that you're finally pregnant after all the perseverance.
