Because my blood work was all so good, my RE didn't think I needed to be on Metformin while taking Clomid. A couple cycles have gone by and I'm still ovulating later than they want me to. I'm curious to know if there's any of you ladies out there that take Metforming even if your blood work didn't call for it? I'm thinking it can't hurt, right? I'll take anything or do anything to start a family. I was thinking about calling my dr office to ask them about this but figured I'd see what you all had to say first.View Thread
Thank you for your input. I'm sorry you've had to go through everything you listed. What a stressful time. I'm glad you're onto greener pastures. Yay!
I sure hope that getting rid of these polyps will definitely help us in getting our family started. Reading what you typed me back really makes me feel like at least one of our stumbling blocks is eliminated...for now anyway.
Thanks again for your input and kind words. Fingers crossed!View Thread
Have any of you ladies had uterine polyps removed along with dealing with your PCOS? I was just recently diagnosed with both. PCOS in December and the uterine polyp that was taking up 1/3 of the room in my uterus was found 02.10.12. I just had it removed on Tuesday. I ovulate on my own but my RE is wanting me to ovulate earlier in my cycle. So far, I'm still ovulating around CD20. I'm just wondering if anyone has had success in conceiving after the removal of uterine polyp(s) even if dealing with PCOS as well? I'm trying not to put all my eggs in one basket with this surgery....no pun intended.
They did mine as an outpatient surgery and put me under general anesthesia. I was more nervous about being put under but it only took 25 mins and I was headed home about 15 mins after waking up. It definitely wasn't as big of a deal as I was making it. However, with that being said, I wouldn't want to deal with it again...but if it meant I'd get a baby, I do it ten times over.
I know removing the polyp definitely can't hinder anything. And everything that I've read about their removal has been very positive, however, I know that I have other issues going on with ovulation as well. I'm just trying not to let myself get too stuck on this being the fix.
My brother and his wife are due to have their baby at any time now. In anticipation of my nephew's arrival, I've been going through some major ups and downs awaiting to start up on my medicine again. I just really want something to happen and us to start a family. I had kind of an emotional freak out the other night and scared my husband, I think. Just basically broke down crying and screaming telling him how I felt like such a failure because I can't make something happen that is supposed to be so natural for women. I feel so defective right now. He was amazing and just wrapped his arms around me and told me that the medicine would work and we'd have our chance. I'm glad he was so supportive when I needed him to be.
I would LOVE to get pregnant with twins. I think that would be amazing! I'm so glad you had luck!View Thread
You feel however it is that you need to feel. You're completely allowed to be up and down and all over the place. These medicines we're all on definitely have a tendency to make us into different people. But this is how I look at, if ever there is a reason to be emotional, trying to bring a life into the world is it!
Also, your retrieval is on St. Patrick's Day! You're starting off on a day of good luck! That's got to mean something, right?!?!
