Hi there! I am 29 and I have PCOS. We already have a 2 yr old, which a combo of Clomid and Metfromin made him possible. When we started to try again I thought that this time would be easier because I already have a kid and that the dosages would be a lot less. I was very wrong. It has been almost a year now and still nothing. I was on Metformin and Clomid for several months and it didn't help, so they increased the Clomid dose (three time until they reached the max dose) and that still didn't work so they increased my Metfromin (which made me incredibly sick) and it still didn't help. Last month they took me off both of those and put me on Femara, I take it days 3-7 of my cycle. It is finally working, my last blood draw looked really good. I know that it is hard to have patience when trying to have kids, and it seems like the whole world can have a baby easier than you can, but hang in there. Since you were recently diagnosed it's going to take some trail and error to get the meds and the dose just right, which takes time. But there are a lot of option out there, you just need to talk to your doctor about which options are best for you. And remember the more you stress the more messed up you make your hormones. I try to look at it like this: We might not get pregnant tonight but the practice sure is a lot of fun! View Thread
