Hi Everyone! I'm new to this board, although not new to PCOS. As a bit of background, I've struggled with PCOS for years, and in March 2008 I had Ovarian Drilling done. I was also on Met for Insulin Resistance. After 8 cycles of Clomid, 4 cycles of injectibles, and 3 IUIs, I finally became pregnant with my daughter who was born in Feb 2010. DH and I are now working on #2, but my PCOS seems to be standing in our way.
I'm really just looking for feedback and support from others who are experiences the same things as me.

Thanks for the welcome! I saw my RE today, and will begin Provera tomorrow to try and get things straightened out a bit before we can start meds and *hopefully* do an IUI. I posted the details of my appointment on my blog: www.thelifeofchelle.blogspot.com
KittyKatJen -- regarding the OD, it did help me A LOT for a while, but unfortunately the results did not last. I never had a 28 day cycle, but I did become MUCH more regular than before the OD. However, now that it's been 3 years since I had it done, the cysts have returned and brought the irregular cycles and other problems along with them. With that in mind, I don't think I would recommend it to anyone else. I was under the impression that it would be a much more permanent fix than what it was. After all, it was SURGERY with a recovery that took several days.
