    Hi Hope we all had a great christmas
    Good luck SUZ i hope you get that BFP news
    well it was day 21 on x mas day for me so this mth it was just to hard to fit in to get to a doc to check my levels

    Just wanted to ask you all what do you think about this
    Every month from day 21 i always seem to get brown spotting right up untill my af comes to see me i have asked my gyno why i get this and he said he wasnt sure but said most likely as i have pcos
    but this month
    on day 21 and 22 i had light brown spotting again nothing much but alittle to still be able to say it ws there but since day 23 its gone back to clear cm now
    also had sore nipples since day 21 and now im day 24 and my nipples are killing me
    I havent had this nipple problem in the past but i have gone upto 100mg so do you think it maybe the reason cause of the clomid making my body do this or do you think its good signs for early pregnancy
    Im not to sure on what day i did O so it makes things alittle hard

    Any ideas would be great
    Good luck to you all hope we all see 2 lines soon
    Take care Kellie

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Fiona. I have been trying to concieve again after a miscarriage in March 2007. I have been trying for 9 months now using the website Fertility Friend. I believe I have been doing everything correct, but I came across an article about PCOS. The symptoms I have seem to be the same as PCOS. Can anyone tell me the symptoms anyone has who definately has PCOS???

    Need to know for my own sanity....

    Fiona.

    Talking Hi newby!!

    Hi all, I too have pcos and have been trying to get pregnant, i found that the clomid made me feel bloody awful and yet other women i know who have pcos had no trouble whatso ever on it. I have been on fsh injections and finally finally had a good result in that i finally made it to having a trigger and now the waiting game begins until the 15th of February. I did ask my fs nurse if i would know any earlier if i was pregga's, and she just looked at me like i was stupid and said that i would get my period. Normally that would probably happen for anyone else but my body just doesn't work like that it bleeds when it wants to unless artificially stimulated. has anyone else had this trouble?? Anyway that's enough of my ranting and i will get off my soap box now. neane

    Hi Neane

    I have PCOS and went through the Clomid rounds (3 cycles all BFN) after 4 years TTC with DH. In those four years I only ever had spotting. I got my first decent AF visit on the first cycle of Clomid. Turns out my cycle length on clomid was too long so my FS wanted to try other options but said I had to lose at least 30 kg before that. So DH and I though we would take a break and go on a holiday before I got back into weight loss mode. Turns out we conceived two weeks after I finished Clomid. Go figure!As for what will happen to my body after the birth I have no idea. My whole life I have had very irregular periods but at least on Clomid I had something even if my cycle length were between 35 and 42 days. I do know though that when my weight is done i do have bleeds more often.
    Anyway all from me.

    Smile Well done!!!

    hey macha well done i have been trying to loose weight but everytime i do i seem to put it back on just as quick but i will get there eventually i wont let that weight demon beat me... my DH and I have been on FSH for two or three months it's all just blurring into one for us now i also seem to have very long cycles as well, extremely irregular and not ovulating. on the FSH i finally got a big 23mm follicle last week so had trigger injection and just having puregon injections every three days last one on wednesday, have preg test (urine) on the 15th February. It is really hard waiting that long to find out and it's also difficult to tell if i have any preg symptoms cause the injections i am having make my bb's very sore especially heavy, tired am feeling some weird sensations though similiar to cramps but different so who knows.

    hey everyone, my name is Hollye and im new to this. i have been diagnosed with pcos and docs started me on metformin which left me feeling quite ill so now im on my first cycle of clomid. everything seems to be going ok, apart from feeling abit of nausa and fatigue. My skin also seems to be breaking out. Does anyone else have this problem on clomid? Im now at day 17 of my cycle and am going for my bloodtest this thursday, hopefully i have ovulated this month. My partner and I have been together for 4 years this april and have been trying to have a baby for 2 years now. I hope clomid works for me. Just wish the side affects would go away. Around when i was meant to be ovulating on day 14 is when i started to break out and get hot flushes and some pain around where my ovaries would be. But im not sure what this could be. If anyone has any insite for me that would be great....

    Hollye9188 welcome and all your symptoms i can definetely relate to, are you seeing a fertility specialist (fs) DH i think is dear hubby not sure about DD i too am slowly figuring out what all the abreviations mean like EDD estimated date of delivery, so back to you is your doctor doing any ultrasound to see how the clomid is affecting your follicle growth? from my own experience my fs started me with clomid and also did u/sounds to see if i was producing any follicles, unfortunately after three months and feeling like complete crap and some depression related to the medication my fs decided that i was completely resistant to the clomid and went onto fsh injections (follicle stimulating hormone) which is pretty much one step away for me from doing a full IVF cycle, I'm not sure how common doing fsh cycles are but after discussing this with my fs and DH it was the best option as we aren't in a financial position to do IVF. to cut the long story short.....lol the second cycle of fsh injections worked i had a fantastic response and for the first time had a big juicy lead follicle for which they gave me a trigger injection to make me ovulate and now i'm pregnant, only very early days but still here i am .
    If you ever want to talk about how your feeling go right ahead, both ears are open, I know how trying this can be .
    Also a few of my girlfriends who have pcos and have been trying for years..... did clomid and went on to have successful pregnancies and beautiful babies, so the moral is what works for one may not work for another.. so again welcome and sorry about me rambling on... cheers neane

    Thumbs up Hollye

    Hey chick,
    How did you go did you ovulate? I really hope so. If you have to go onto the fsh injections there not that bad. Have you ever seen a diabetic with an insulin pen? well the pen that you get has a dial up side bit and you just put a very small fine needle onto the end and inject it into the lower part of your stomach it's all sub cutaneous which means it's alot nicer than having an injection into the muscle i won't lie it does sting a little especially after you go up in dose but only for a few seconds and yes it is worth it. I personally found that i had less adverse effects on the fsh than the clomid. The clomid made me feel really really really bad
    extremley moody depressed irritable to the max hot flushes bloated you name it. Whereas the fsh i had a little bit of bloating like your supposed to get when you are about to get your period. sorry just babbling on . What I want to know is how did you go?????
