PCO and Clomid
I have been following your posts closely during my journey TTC. I have never joined a site like this before so please bare with me while I get to grips with how everything works.
Let me give you some background information.
I came of BCp just over 2 years ago and my periods did not return, at the time I thought this was normal after stopping BC and that my body needed time to get back to how it was prior to BC, so did not go to see my DR.
March this year my periods still not returned although I started to have very strong pains in my stomach which resulted in a hospital visit, it was then that I found out I had PCO but not the syndrome and to be told of the nurse (her exact words) I would only ever be able to have a test tube baby! It was like I had been hit by a bus and I felt numb.
March this year I started the long drawn out procedure of waiting to see a Fertility Specialist, I had my first appointment in June and to my total surprise I had my first period in over 2 years 2 weeks before my appointment, in my mind I thought yes everything is working again! whoop whoop.
Turned out not to be the case, the Dr told me I was not ovulating I and have multiple cysts on each ovary, another hit by a bus moment! My next step was to have a HSG to check my tubes.
I had the HSG done in September and the Dr was pleased as tubes not blocked and were wide enough to easily pass an egg, I was then prescribed 50MG of Clomid.
I have now finished my first round of Clomid and had my first Follicle scan last Monday at cd14, this turned out to be dissapointing as had 2 follicles one at 9.5mm and the other a tiny 7.5mm. The Dr told me that the first round Clomid has not worked although still wants to have bloods at day 21 to see if I did infact ovulate. If I have ovulated I stay on 50mg of clomid, if I havent ovulated my Clomid dose is increased to 100mg.
My bloods are booked in for tomorrow. I have been using OPK stick since Friday continuing to today. What is puzzling me is that Sat/Sun/and Monday 's sticks all show a positive line the strongest and darkest line i have ever had!
Is it possible that those small follicles have been growing since last Monday and I have infact ovulated?
I am finding all of this so stressful and confusing and would love to hear from anyone who has been through a similar experience.
I apologise for such a long post.
Thanks for listening Ladies and hope to hear from you soon
