I was officially diagnosed with PCOS in June of this past year after years and years of asking what is going on with me and my body. Unfortunately, my husband and I have been trying to have children for the past 4 years and while the diagnosis helped explain things, it hasn't made getting pregnant any easier. I was pregnant in December but miscarried shortly after finding out.
I am currently on a Clomid regime (100mg) and will have my first IUI cycle this month. I am cautiously optimistic about it and my husband and I have decied we would try for 2 cycles of IUI then we would start applying to adopt.
From the time I was 17 I was on birth control and got off in 2008 when we decided we wanted to try to become parents. My period never returned to normal. I have struggled with my weight for a few years, mostly not being able to lose it. I changed my diet to low GI and high protein last year around this time and lost 20 pounds in 3 month. I packed on 10 pounds since September, I am an emotional eater, and this infertility treatment crap has thrown me for a huge loop.
Right now I am in desperate need of emotional support. My husband tries, but he really doesn't understand why I get upset when I find out of our friends is expecting (again) or how come I completely shut down when the doctor calls with the results of my blood work or scans.
