TTC for over a year now, 1 miscarriage & PCOS
I've never actually joined a site like this before so this is all new to me, although I am hoping to get to chat to someone in similar circumstances as my own.
Briefly, by way of background I was told I'd PCOS last year after asking to be tested. The only indication that I had was that I was so irregular & could go anything from being regular for 3 months to nothing for 6 months. No pattern whatsoever. Once diagnosed with PCOS after my doctor did a blood test, scan and a laboscopy, he prescribed Glucophase and Clomid. I started the Glucophase immediately and think I’d taken 1 course of the clomid for the 5 days and was delighted to find we were pregnant; unfortunately we miscarried at 8 weeks.
We’ve been TTC ever since with no joy. I’m still on the Glucophase but I’m also still irregular so I only get to take the clomid when ever I have a period which is now every 2nd month or so. As far as I know and please correct me if I’m wrong here, but the Clomid is the drug which stimulates ovulation? I don’t know if I’m coming or going, if I’m ovulating or not or even if I should be on these drugs this long…. Are we TTC to often or too little… I just don’t know… Is there a test that I can do to see if I’m ovulating while on Glucophase and clomid… I’m getting very disillusioned, and I know a year is only a short time compared to most, but like all of you I want this more than anything…
