PCOS is actually really common unfortunately... girls get put on the pill in their teens before symptoms are really noticeable, they usually don't have a clue they have pcos until they are ready to start a family. SUCKS!!
Thanks for the info. I thought it was something like that. And you are 100% right on the PCOS stuff. I went on the pill when I was 17 and had no idea that I had it. I wish I was as informed then as I am now about my cycles. I would have done things differently.

AFM, I'm beginning to think that the universe has a really twisted sense of humor. I think I finally ovulated for the first time in 6 months and after 3 cycles of Clomid (at 50 mg each time...weird, right?). Our timing was great, but we don't get DH's blood results on his Cystic Fibrosis carrier status for another 9 days. I hate that I'm going to be stessed about this during my first viable 2ww in a year. I didn't think there was anyway that I'd ovulate without increasing my dose of Clomid, so we didn't worry about preventing at all.
