Feeling Hopeless.

Feeling Hopeless.

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 Treatments Are There To Help With Weight

What Treatments Are There To Help With Weight

I struggle with my weight so badly. It's frustrating I eat small portions, exercise, and eat mostly non- processed food, I don't know what else to do I lost a bunch and then gained it all back and then some and I didn't do anything differently. I've also had 6 miscarriages. I'm so frustrated with my body and even with antidepressants I feel suicidal. People are so mean to me because of my weight and try as I might I just keep going up. I was on metformin and it made my depression and anxiety go… read more

Partner Question

I have a question about partners. I am looking for someone (man) to share my life with. I am on a site, but hope i will meet him, in say a grocery store
There is a guy online who likes me. But i am not attrected to him. And when i saw his story, he has had lots of problems with his body too, and i think cant have kids
I am not interrested in this man, but is it wrong of me to click him away so to speak, because he possibly cant have kids. I mean, i have enough problema on my one on that… read more

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?

A myPCOSteam Member said:

Femara worked for me! It's my miracle drug 😍! I did many failed rounds of clomid this year and last until I switched to Femara. I've got Femara online (a way cheaper). My friend said just search on… read more

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!

Hysterosalpingogram

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.
