PCOS - New to IVF - Day 11

Postby pcosgirl » Wed Oct 25, 2006 2:51 pm

Let me introduce myself by saying that I am 28 years old diagnosed with PCOS 5 years ago and never thought I would have to do IVF to become pregnant. My husband and I actively sought pregnancy about 3 years ago and since then we have tried Metformin resulting in a 10 week miscarriage, Clomid twice to no avail, and Folistim with IUI twice to no good outcome. My husband is 34 years old and really ready for child and all of our friends have at least one child under two. His family is eager too since our child would be their first grandchild.

After the last failed attempt, I was as low as when I miscarried. The doctor's were scratching their heads and have put me in the unexplained fertility category, which just makes me feel more frustrated. I started acupunture 8 weeks ago, addressed the stressors in my life, and even quit running :cry: . Today is day 11 and we are looking good with 8 larger eggs and a thick lining. Even though we have changed so many things in our lives and the outlook seems good, I can't help but to worry because I know that this is really out of my control. I loathe the two week waiting period and this time I will find out if I am pregnant on my birthday and my husband will be out of the country. Any good tips for staying sane?

Hiya Pcosgirl,

First of all, im sorry to hear what u have been - and going thru, but u have deff come to the right place. The ladies here know exactly what u are going thru and will be so supportive, they have been my saviors at times.

You will get more replies if u join us over on the 'general Forum' this is where most people seem to post, there is a thread there called 'October/Nov Buddies' most women there are having treatment right now and will know what u are going thru.

Otherwise, the only advise i can give u is - try to relax - i know i know, easier said than done lol, ive been there and was told the same thing - its not easy is it?

Is good ur already trying out acupunture, a lot of women find that that helps, i am thinking f having it the next time (hopefully start in January)

Hope to see u in the general forum, for now take care

C u on the other side (lol)

Hey Becky Xxx,
Thanks so much for the direction to the general forum and also with your kind words of encouragement. This is the first time I have posted anything on a message board so I am already thrilled with the outcome espcially the part about chatting with gals going through their IVF cycle the same time I am.

Good luck to you in January and definitely give acupunture a try. I consider myself a very "western" type gal and it has significantly improved the bad side effects from the fertility drugs and has also allowed me to sleep soundly. It took about 2-3 sessions before I noticed anything.

Thanks again,

Just wanted to say don't despair and hang on in there. I have PCOS too and have been lucky enough to have a BFP on the first go on IVF. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer but hey, good things happen to those who wait. I too had accupuncture and found that helpful. So good luck and do let me know if you have any questions, not sure if I can help but I'll be happy to share my experience.
