3rd Round of Clomid-Getting discouraged
This is my first post so i'm going to give a little bit of a background. My fiance and I have been trying to conceive for about a year and a half now. We decided to see a fertility specialist. He already has a son, so we knew it wasn't him that was causing the problem. I saw a specialist and she confirmed what I already knew, I have PCOS and was not ovulating on my own.
Her first step was recommend me to a nutrition and told me that I should try losing weight in order to conceive because of the PCOS and making it much more difficult. I didn't see a nutritionist, but lost 10 pounds on my own. She said to try on my own and if we hadn't conceived in 3 months, to come back to her.
We took her advice, besides seeing the nutritionist and tried for a year (longer than she suggested) She said my glucose level was supposed to be around 20, mine was 25 which was much lower than it was before (65). So that came back great, but because it was still a little high, she put my on metformin and prescribed my first dose of clomid which was 50mg once a day for 5 days and ordered and HCG shot for me.
My first HCG ultrasound after the clomid, I still had my period so she suspected that it did not work. She sent me for bloodwork to confirm, and and was correct so she upped the dose to (2) 50mgs of clomid a day for 5 days.
My next HCG ultrasound was Monday and I had a new Dr. He told me that there was a small egg (about 10mm) but they needed it to be 18 to give me the HCG shot. So again, they upped my dose of clomid to (3) 50 mg of clomid a day for 5 days and I go back Monday at 9:15 to see if it make me ovulate.
Has anybody else had this much trouble with Clomid? He says not to get discouraged because he's confident that it will happen, but I can't help feeling like there's more I should be doing and I don't understand why I was given this body, if not to conceive. I cried leaving the doctors office and the entire way home.
