Back in October I was tested for this and other things, but my doctor thought it wasn't PCOS because I am not obese and I do not have excessive hair growth and she didn't think my hormones indicated it. But, the fertility specialist calls it variant PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). He thinks that because I had gestational diabetes early on in my last pregnancy, and that I have high cholesterol and some of my numbers he thinks this is what it is. I have to do a sonohisterogram (SHG), or saline infused ultrasound of my uterus on day 7 of my next cycle to see if I have cysts and other structural issues. Then take Femara on days 3-7 because he agreed that I no longer should take Clomid due to the eye issues. Femara is a breast cancer drug and although it is not FDA approved for fertility, it works much like Clomid without all the negative side effects. After taking that I will go in on day 14 and have an ultrasound to see how many follicles I am producing and if they think I need it, he will give me a shot of ovidrel (hcg) to help me ovulate. Then he will be able to tell me when to time intercourse.
My hubby will have to give a sample soon to check him out. Doctor said as he was walking out the door, "I am confident that you will be pregnant soon! and you have an advantage because you are young. I usually see people when they are in their 40s and then it is much more difficult."
So -- infertility. PCOS.
Father, thank you for providing me with such a knowledgeable doctor to help me. Thank you that you love me. Please be with those who are reading this that they are blessed. In Jesus' name, AMEN!
