Hey.. we have been TTC full force for about 7-8 months now.  At times I feel like the odds are so against me and its scary.  I just turned 38 and have known for a while now that I may have endometriosis but def have been diagnosed by my OB with pcos.  I am really confused about that because as I obsessively research pcos, I cannot understand how I have this when my period is like clockwork as well as ovulation according to the OPK.  I also take metformin 1500mg for at least a year now.  All I can say is periods can be painful and heavy but never longer than 4-5 days.  Keep in mind I have been pregnant before several years ago, 22 wks, fell down stairs and lost it.  Now I also have some blockage in my left falopian tube but doctors say right is perfectly fine and I can conceive this way.  I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO OR THINK.  This is the most frustrating, upsetting, discouraging and depressing feeling every single month waiting and hoping to have AF show up every time, on time.. IDK how much longer I can be patient and positive.   Can anyone offer some input, advice or anything.  I'm not even sure whats next.. Should I be looking into Clomid or something or do these things have no effect in my case??  We can def not afford IVF or possibly even implantation.  Im lost, I refuse to go through life without pregnancy...

Hi- I'm so sorry you are struggling. I too wonder if I have PCOS but haven't gotten a diagnoses yet. I have been ttc for 6 months and have had 2 chemical pregnancies so I know you must feel extremely frustrated. I am also 38 by the way (39 soon!)

Did the doctor give you any guidance as to what to do? Have you considered Chinese herbs or acupuncture? I am reading all about these things because I too am frustrated and wanting to find a solution. I see my OB tomorrow. I am not sure what this visit will entail...it's just the preliminary consult.

How was your PCOS diagnosed? I wonder how they confirm it.

My heart goes out to you- I hope you find some answers soon. There is nothing worse than feeling powerless over your own body.

Take care.

If i'm remembering  correctly, I THINK that PCOS' hormone wackiness can lead to a "false positive" with the OPKs.
