Can I join in here too. I am currently TTC no 2. My son is 4 and I was very lucky to conceive him on my second month of Clomid. I went back on Clomid last year and fell pregnant the first cycle but unfortunately it ended in early miscarriage. Since then I have been plagued with chest infections and developed a DVT so had to hold off on TTC. On Monday I had ovarian drilling so am just praying this works as this is the last thing we can get on the NHS. Am on Metformin 1000mg and have lost 2.5 stone since I fell pregnant last year. I am now the same weight I was when I was pregnant with my son. I am back to temping and will be starting back with my OPKS again soon. Does anyone know when I might expect to OV? Weirdly enough I got a natural AF just before the op and was on CD 6 when I had the op so hoping this might mean good things.

Hi I'm new to the forum. My daughter is 7 and I conceived her naturally within the first month of trying. I hadn't been using contraception for about 3 years prior to that. I have always had irregular periods but only found out I have PCOS in June this year after an ultrasound. I've been off the pill since March and had 2 periods so far (26th March then 13th May). Currently on day 86 and waiting for AF to arrive. I have been having blood tests and things for over 12 months and my GP has prescribed me with clomid which I can start as soon as AF arrives. Trying not to get stressed out but this is one very long cycle!

Hi all, I'm new to this board and this is the first time I have posted in a forum; I feel I need some support and advice from others going through the same problems as me.

A little information about me: I'm 25 and mother to a beautiful 6 year old princess, I have secondary infertility and have been TTC baby no. 2 for nearly 4 years now. Prior to my daughter I fell pregnant with twins (boy & girl) but unfortunately lost them at 5 and a half months. I am currently studying to be a midwife and will hopefully go on to build a career in Assisted Conception and at risk pregnancies. (Sorry if some info is irrelevant) I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 17 and pregnant with the twins. When I fell pregnant my periods had only just started becoming irregular (3 months apart), after the birth of my daughter in 2008 my periods lengthened (from 3 month gap, to 6 and finally to just over a year).

I have already had a HSG, blood tests, smear, scans etc and have also had 4 cycles of Clomid (50mg and 3 x 100mg); the final cycle April this year was successful but unfortunately I suffered a horrific miscarriage at 10 weeks and was hospitalised at a few days. I had no idea I was pregnant as at the monitoring scan in April I was advised I would not ovulate due to the size of the follicles; however it seems I ovulated later then expected and fell pregnant. The past few weeks have been immensely difficult and im finding it hard to hold my faith.

I am currently on CD 58 and have an appointment with my fertility consultant tomorrow to discuss and arrange my next treatment, which is ovarian drilling and a hysteroscopy; hopefully at some point during the remainder of this year. I am petrified of going in for the op as heart problems under anaesthetic run in my family (mum and nan), im hoping some other members can provide some info or advice on how they were pre and post op to help settle my nerves.

Any other questions or advice would also be really helpful, I look forward to hearing from you all :P

Hey Vicki, i'm also a newbie! has your GP not suggested provera to help induce a period? I was offered this by my consultant when I started my cycles with clomid. Try not to get too stressed out, my longest cycle has been 376 xxx

Hey Summer, I too am a newbie! Sorry to hear of your loss and recent months of health problems. Would love to hear any advice regarding ovarian drilling as that is my next step and also any weight loss tips would be helpful :) I have also read of women having AV within 28-30 days of having the op, although I think it does vary from woman to woman xxx

Hi. I know this board is pretty quiet but I'm not really a clomid buddy so I thought I'd post here. I did try it once but it didn't work and then as you see from my signature I didn't need it in the end! Anyway, my little girl is 18 months now so we thought we'd give number 2 a try. Who knows, it might work it might not, but we are going to give it a shot! I stopped taking the pill a couple of weeks ago so am waiting for af and then I'll start temping. Anyone else trying for no. 2? Xx

Hi everyone, I am still waiting for baby no 2 and am finally pregnant again after another early miscarriage in January. I am 4 +1 and to say I'm nervous is an understatement. I have an early scan when I will be 5+5 which I'm not too happy about as doubt much will be seen. They have started me on Clexane and Asprin but have refused progesterone. I don't feel pregnant other than tiredness. I just hope I've got a sticky bean this time. I found out the day after we came back from Disney so panicked slightly as I went on rides I shouldn't have. However I was more relaxed than normal so may have been a better environment for a sticky one :)

Hi All

I have a little girl, who was conceived after 1 round of Clomid, I know I was extremely lucky.

We are talking about "baby 2", and just wondered if anyone had any help or advice!!

I am currently on 10mg Citalopram for PND, and also on cerazette, I had great fun when it came to getting a pill, as the doctors were wary because of my blood pressure, and the frustrating discussions about what was best for the PCOS, but the doctors won with the blood pressure!!!

Do we need to go to the doctors again, and start the whole process again? Or would the doctor just refer me straight back to the consultant who would hopefully prescribe the Clomid or whatever.

Any advice grateful!!!

I went back to gp and was then referred back to consultants. I will say where I am I had to pretty much go through every test, appt again, even though I was given clomid to use first time they wouldn't give me it straight away. Hope your second journey is a short one xxx
