in the past couple of months i was diagnosed with pcos. that was good and bad news. good because i had an ectopic pregnancy when i was younger and thought i could never have a baby. bad because now i have a long and bumpy road laid before me in order to have a baby. now the doctor and nurses are talking about flow charts and cycle days like i even know what they mean!!!! im so confused. i want to call my doctor but i fear that he will get tired of hearing my voice because of all the questions i have. when i had the ectopic pregnancy the doctor said because of the damage there was a slim to none chance of having a baby, ever. flow charts and cycle days didnt mean anything after that. now, ovulation and menstration and 20 other words i never thought about are being thrown at me like i say and use them everyday. i know i have pcos. im almost 35 now. i know i want a baby now. what do i do now? where do i go from here?View Thread

all my lab work came back normal too. my ultrasound shows that i have pcos. i had an hsg done to see if there is blockage in my tubes. the right is fine and my left shows a little damage but still enough flow that the doc doesnt think blockage is the problem. he wants to see if i have a period on my own. if not im supposed to call and get another round of provera. after this round im supposed to start the clomid. this waiting for my period is driving me crazy. i know its not gonna come. i never wanted a period so bad in my life!!!! the only advice i can give is have patience. all this anxiety im feeling is crazy and useless. things can only go as fast as our bodyz will allow. in the end your patience will be rewarded.View Thread
