Thread: TTC & Taking Clomid and/or Metformin ~ October 2006

    Thanks, Deb. I'm getting all weepy again!

    Can I blame the provera and my hormonal mood swings?

    You are all such wonderful and lovely ladies.

    Deb, I can very much understand the feeling of not belonging... I started on the metformin very early in our TTC journey, and initially did feel very out of place in the clomid/metformin thread. Even moving out of the 1-6 months thread into the 6+ months thread felt a little odd, as at that point I still had never actually ovulated in any convincing way.



    I guess it just goes to show that we are all unique, and it's never easy to make unique individuals fit into a box.

    Thanks for the welcom BW. Just out of curiosity how many mg of Metformin are you on per day. I am on 1500mg and have found that it helps AF come regularly (35 day cycle). I just noticed that you are on CD74! Well i hope it kicks in for us soon.

    Dani, i hope you are right and we are all preggas by Christmas. Would be a nice Christmas pressie thats for sure (knowing that you have your own lil angel on its way)!

    I'm only on 1000mg... I've asked my doctor if I should increase it, but he said no.

    But then, this is the same doctor who handed me my prescription for clomid (8 weeks ago!), two blood test forms and sent me on my way... and the only words he had for us when DH's SA came back bad was that it might just take us a little longer! I had to get the provera to end this stupid cycle from a friend (a wonderful, beautiful friend who also happens to be a gyn/obs registrar in Newcastle)... and I'll be very shortly getting myself a new fertility specialist!

    Hurray for JUNIOR! Lets hope Santa reads his list! LOL

    BW - i would definately be getting a second opinion. You never know, you current doctor may be right but at least you have peace of mind. My gyno/obs is at Royal Hospital For Women at Randwick and he is great. As soon as i walked in the door he was 100% helpful and got my body back on track, or at least i think it is! When i was diagnosed with PCOS i was put on just 500mg a day by my GP, but when i went to my gyn/obs he told me that 500mg does nothing and to triple my dose straight away.

    hi guys!!

    welcome to all the newies!! yay!! some new peeps to chat too!!

    BW- thankyou for thinking of me im 16dpo i think but i have no idea if i o'ed or not- the gyno said that i had 19mm follicle and that it all looks good but who knows
    my cylces are 34-46 but they last 2 have been weird- for all you newies i'm al clomid (1st month) and on met since feb for PCOS. Ihad a levovist alst month and my tubes are clear etc- this caused me to blled though so i had to wait until AF started naturally to start clomid.

    i'm not testing cause i would rather see AF thana BFN. I dont think i am though- cause i alwaysthough that i would just know if i was preggie.

    Dan- LOL


    i just wanna be in Bellie buddies!!

    love

    Hi guys,

    I just was hoping to shed some light on why the thread was closed.

    Basically it boils down to this: there is no possible way for this forum to have a thread to cover every circumstance, and as moderators, we have to make decisions on whether the conversations in a thread can be conducted somewhere pre-existing. While I can't imagine the difficulties of your situation, I have, in my time, had my share of issues and have felt the isolation this can cause. Closing the thread was not a personal thing against any one of you, but more a case of wanting to bring together a community where you can provide support to one another even if you've not experienced everything some other person has. As some have mentioned, some of the existing threads are barely being utilised at the moment.

    Also, while it's natural to bond with some people, it would be nigh impossible to cater to every group of members who wanted their 'own' place to talk. The moderators already spend a lot of their time reading threads, managing the site and trying to keep things running smoothly, and it's a fine balance to try to make as many members happy as possible without things getting out of control. We are all mums with kids and things that require our time outside of BB, and I think it's only fair that everyone recognise that every decision is made with the view to keeping this fine balance.

    However, if you strongly feel there may be a place for a specialised thread to cover your circumstance, please put this to the mods first for discussion. Not everyone is going to get what they request for, and that's just the nature of forums this size. If they did, I'd want a 'TTC #5 Long Term Assisted Conception while Breastfeeding' thread! But I suspect no one would join me in it!

    Did they do a day 21 blood test, princess?

    I would think at 16DPO you should definitely test! It sounds like you had a nice big follie... so ovulation was bound to happen at some point. Do you chart at all? That should show when.

    I can understand your reluctance, but it's starting to sound awfully exciting! test! test! test!

    bw - I would be changing FS too, if I was you. I use to have 90 day cycles too. In fact once I had bleeding nearly every single day for nearly 6mths. 3 times in the last 5 years I have had surgery: D&C and hysterscopy to bring things back to a "normal" 36 day cyle. I have also had 3 different FS before I found the one I felt comfortable with, and who explained things to me, and that I could talk to without being treated like an imbecile. Good luck with finding a new FS and I'm sure the provera will do it's job for you very soon.

    Hi to all the new girls - wishing you lots of luck!

    Princess - I have all my fingers and toes crossed for you *hugs*

    Belinda, what area of Sydney are you in, and who is your specialist?

    I was seeing Dr Hilary Joyce at Bowral as we use to live at Picton til 3mths ago. I know she also has a clinic at Liverpool and Macquarie St, Sydney. Probably way out of your way.

    Yeah, just a tad... still looking around... I've had a few recommendations, but it's such a personal thing that it's difficult to know whether the specialist that suits one couple will suit us as well.

    Girls, firstly I'm glad to have found you all. Felt for a moment as if I'd fallen off the planet. What would I do with out you all. Don't want to sound like a sad case but I have no family (apart from DH and kiddies) in Australia (been here 17 years). And although we have lived in Melbourne for 11 years (moved here from WA) I haven't got what I would call any close friends. The closest would be a couple of girls from my old mothers group and I haven't seen either of them since I lost Luke. (Long story short - they were also friends of the lady I didn't like who was pregnant at the same time as me but got to keep her baby). We kind of lost contact and grew apart I suppose.
    There you go, I really am a sad case after all!!!! But don't worry, I do "do lunch"! with other aquaintances.

    Anyway, without out you lot life would be so dull. Can let each other know how we feel, what makes us mad and what makes us sad. You are all truely special and each one of you adds something quite unique and truely bright to this forum. Just glad I managed to track you down again!!! Computer brain dead sometimes I think.

    Talking of brain dead - what does "AC" mean?????

    Big hugs to Deb, Michelle, Willow, BW, Lilylou (where are you?) and everybody else I may have forgotten to mention.

    Keep smiling ladies!
    Debbie

    Assisted Conception Debbie.

    Sushee - thank you for explaining. When the thread first started it was related specifically to the topic title. It just developed from there that some of us are a little *weirder* than others and we found a unique corner of support. We really weren't trying to create a new thread, we just happened to find others in a similar situation of loss and trying to get pregnant with drugs.

    Still have cramping. Still hopeful. And I have more HPT's to check with

    BW- that's the thing- he just gave me and internal ultrasound and said BD every 2nd day till AF, no test nothing. I got a major pain for about 20seconds at 16dpo so i'm hoping that's when the eggie popped out.
    i just can;t get excited...... so many times i've been hoping and BFN. i used to chart prev but am only doing CM now.

    i feel nothing no cramps etc

    Princess, how many days until your CM stopped appearing fertile?

    Don't you just love fertility specialists that seem so... I can't think of the right word! But mine's just doing day 21 blood tests and that's it! I'm going to find someone who will do more monitoring to make sure things work!
