My DH and I have been TTC for the last 6 years. Come to find out, I have PCOS and Endometreosis and he is sterile. Of course we were both devastated.
So, this year after long consideration we decided to artificially inseminate. I went to my OB/GYN last year and was put on various different hormones, etc. to help with my cycle irregularities, none of which worked.
Last June, I decided to try an all natural alternative (Chasteberry/Vitex), which needless to say I was skeptical of. Well, I actually had 11 months of regularity which was amazing (considering I've never had a regular cycle my whole life).
This February, we bit the bullet and started inseminating. Of course, I didn't fall pregnant and we tried again in March. Again, no luck. We finally worked out our timing was off.
We went to try again in April, however, I had my LH surge a week earlier than we expected and had to cancel the insemination. After being 2 weeks late for my period, I decided to take a pregnancy test. I tested negative.
I am having some light spotting that started yesterday, but no cramps or any normal signs of a period.
I have a dr's appointment next week but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this too. Is this normal with PCOS? Can you surge without ovulating? Can you have a period without ovulating?
Also, has anyone tried Metformin? What were the results, if so?
