My husband and i have ben ttc for 2 years now and nothing has happened. Had some pregnancy symptoms but test has always showed negative. Went to a dr and was told i have pcos. I was prescribed provera and clomid. I started the provera today. I am very nervous and scared at the same time. I would like some comments if you have gone through this and how your journey went.

Hi Natalie. I don't really post, but I saw nobody had responded so I wanted to chime in. I was rx'd with pcos about 7 1/2 years ago. DH and I have been ttc for about 9 years. I was taking clomid and then went to another doc that was doing all sorts of fertility testing on me. Long story short, my doc passed away a couple months ago and I was left with no hope. My insurance won't cover an RE so I didn't know what to do. I started back to my regular gyn and he put me on another round of clomid. I have been taking Metformin as well. It seems as though last month I actually O'd for the first time in years. So, the combo of Met and clomid is working. I have also recently lost almost 40lbs, so that probably has something to do with it as well.

It can be a very long and very frustrating journey. I have actually resigned myself to never having children, and now I am faced with the possibility of it happening. I hope the clomid works for you and that is all you need. I have done so many rounds and I was just going through the motions. I don't want to sound like one of those people that says,"keep hope! It happened for me it can happen!" I am still not sure if it will happen for me, but at least I know something is finally working after 9 years. All I can say is do everything you can to help it along. If you need to lose some weight then do it. I believe that helped me a lot. It may take a few cycles of clomid for it to work, and it may not work at all. But try to put up with the clomid and blood tests and repeat next month. It ran me ragged, but it is a fact when you are at this stage. I hope it works out for you. Oh yea, and try to BD every other day. I hope it works out for you!
