I did letrozole for 12 cycles without luck. It was such an emotional roller coaster that I quit after that. Luckily a little girl literally fell into our laps and has been my biggest blessing. Id… read more

What Is The Increased Percentage Of Twins?

Hi I’m Brooke ! I’m new here, I’m 25 I was diagnosed with pcos two days ago, although I haven’t had a period without birth control for well over 6-7 years.

Since PCOS is an endocrine disorder there is no reversing it or cure for it -there is just treatment and learning to live with it as best possible.

Femara Success?

Femara Success?

My husband and I have been TTC for 6 yrs. After finally finding a good dr and getting my PCOS diagnosis I have been on Metformin 1000mg twice a day. I had an HSG done, labs and US. Everything is now looking normal. I finished my Femara 2.5mg twice a day for 5 days last week and I have my ultrasound to look at follicles tomorrow. I’m so so anxious and hoping this is it. Does anyone have any Femara success stories?

For Those Who Have To Shave Your Chin Everyday And Have Sensitive Skin, How Do You Deal With Razor Bumps And Irritation?

I have shave everyday (I just started to apply a mixture of oils to create a barrier on my skin) and I use 5 blade razors for men because they get me a smooth shave, but I don't know what to put on afterwards to prevent irritation and razor bumps.

Femara

Femara

Has anyone tried this after not having success on Clomid?

A myPCOSteam Member said:

Yes. I ovulated earlier with Femara and conceived twins on my second round. With Clomid, I had many unsuccessful rounds, even at high doses, and had terrible side effects. No side effects with Femara!

I have been officially TTC since July 2016. I started Clomid in May 2018 and just finished my 3rd cycle of it... and hoping for a BFP in a couple weeks!!! My obgyn referred me to a Reproductive endocrinologist who ordered a sperm count for my S.O., bloodwork and an HSG test for myself. Has anyone had an HSG test? I'm just wondering what all it entails and if it's super painful. She is also switching me to Femara next month d/t the horrendous side effects of the Clomid (severe abdominal pain… read more

I also preferred femara. I had a horrible case of the clomid crazies. I experienced bloating and pain with both pills but Clomid made me cry like an idot.

The HSG wasn't too bad. I had a very… read more

What Type Of Medicines Are Out There For PCOS?

What Type Of Medicines Are Out There For PCOS?

I’m looking for different ways to help my PCOS.
I’ve taken metformin in the past with no luck. Im currently trying out inositol. I’m having issues with weight gain and infertility. I’ve tried metformin paired with several rounds of clomid. Still no luck. I’m trying to maintain healthy eating with exercise along with trying out metformin again. Still no luck.
