    Big hugs to you!

    Sorry to hear you are feeling this way. I have PCOS and insulin resistance and am long term TTC as well (but not as long as 6 years though). It is a long, hard slog!

    Which meds make you sick? Regular Metformin? Have you heard about the Extended Release Met? That is supposed to lessen side effects a lot. Lots of women can't tolerate regular Met, but love the XR stuff.

    What about taking something like Avandia for IR and help w/ weightloss? Only thing is, you can't TTC on it. But perhaps you could take it for a month or two or more, see if it helps you lose weight - if you lose some, you could then decide to stop it when you were happy w/ the weightloss and use those embies?

    Are you eating low GI and exercising as well? Some women find if they don't eat right, the Met makes them sick! Are you eating enough when you take the Met? If you don't have enough food in your stomach, it can also make you sick.

    Are you a member of POSAA? Check them out, if you don't already know about them - they're great for support - [url][/url].

    Hope this helps...
