Hi An_242656

I'm sorry you're having a rough time. Trust me when I say I know how frustrating this ttc stuff can be. I keep telling myself that the reason we have to go through so much more for a baby is because our kid is going to be extra special.
Have you seen an RE?
I'm atypical PCOS, I don't have most of the common visual symptoms that many do. But have you considered Metformin? I was put on met after my m/c in August. Even though I'm really not overweight I immediately started losing weight on it. I wasn't sure how I'd respond because I'm also not diabetic or insulin resistant but it really helped me lose some weight. Another thing that I am on is dexamethasone. That lowers testosterone levels produced by the ovaries and can help with the facial hair issue.
I'm not sure if I helped you any but I hope I did.

I'm sorry you are having such a difficult time. I have been trying for a long time, now also. I was diagnosed with PCOS mainly for irregular periods and by the looks of my ovaries. I'm not insulin resistant. The doc put me on Metformin to try to help with my irregular periods. Do you take Metformin now? Some people think it helps with weight loss. I know what you are going through is so hard.

I have been trying for over five years. We were successful in 2007, but we suffered a miscarriage. We have had no such luck since.
