Hi Everyone! I'm new to this board, although not new to PCOS. As a bit of background, I've struggled with PCOS for years, and in March 2008 I had Ovarian Drilling done. I was also on Met for Insulin Resistance. After 8 cycles of Clomid, 4 cycles of injectibles, and 3 IUIs, I finally became pregnant with my daughter who was born in Feb 2010. DH and I are now working on #2, but my PCOS seems to be standing in our way.

I'm really just looking for feedback and support from others who are experiences the same things as me.

Welcome to the board! So glad you have joined us! I can't believe all you went through to get your little girl. I'm sure she is worth every bit of it. Will you be trying naturally for a while or will you be starting meds/IUIs?

Welcome to the board!

Can you tell me more about the drilling? I have been on Met for 6 months now, did the clomid thing, all the testing and blah. Nothing at all. It is the same thing over and over for me. Call when I am 14 days late, give blood, take provera, call when I start, give blood and start all over again. I just flat out do not get af on my own. I mean, I will like once or twice a year maybe, but that is it. I also actually got af on my own last month, but it lasted for over a month and my doc has me doing the same old thing again.

I have heard of the OD and was very curious about it. Hope you find quick success!
Chellebellnel replied to KittyKatJenn's response:
Thanks for the welcome! I saw my RE today, and will begin Provera tomorrow to try and get things straightened out a bit before we can start meds and *hopefully* do an IUI. I posted the details of my appointment on my blog:

KittyKatJen -- regarding the OD, it did help me A LOT for a while, but unfortunately the results did not last. I never had a 28 day cycle, but I did become MUCH more regular than before the OD. However, now that it's been 3 years since I had it done, the cysts have returned and brought the irregular cycles and other problems along with them. With that in mind, I don't think I would recommend it to anyone else. I was under the impression that it would be a much more permanent fix than what it was. After all, it was SURGERY with a recovery that took several days.

Hmmm. Well, I hope everything gets straightened for you. I had never heard about OD till this board. I'm kinda desperate for my doc to do anything at alL!
