    Hi there...

    Hi - I saw the invite in the PCOS community and I thought I'd come by. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 15 and medicated since then with BC and aldoctone. Last year, my hubs and I decided it was time to start TTC, so, after advice from my doctor, I went off my meds. A year later, nothing. I had a moment a few weeks ago where I thought I might have been preggers because my period was two weeks late, but I got a BFN. We were so disappointed but this is the longest I've been off my medication so missing a period shouldn't be that suprising with PCOS. I have an appt with a OB/Gyn to get put on Clomid to see if that works in my favor. I am also going to get pre-natal vitamins and see if that helps.

    I am really hopeful that the Clomid will work. We desperately want a baby, and while adoption is always an option, we really want one of our own.

    I'm very glad that someone started this discussion group.
