Makes me wonder if I will be able to be a mommy some day :,( Thnx for listening.

    Dont get too situation sounds just like mine. I am also 25 years old, and was diagnosed with Polysystic Ovarian Syndrom which basicially means I dont ovulate all the time either. Maybe thats what you have? My husband and I got married last year and we have been together for 10 years...we are very anxious to start a family.

    I was put on Provera to start my period, and then clomid to help me ovulate. I took an OPK test and it looks as if the clomid worked. Right now I am in the middle of my 2WW and now I have to wait until next week to see if everything worked.

    Keep me posted on your progress, and all the best to you!

    If you haven't already, you should make an appointment with an infertility doctor. There are many things that they can do to help you and some of them are as simple as a pill. I hope for you it works!!
