I endned up doing I think about 3 before I switched to invitro. I couldn't continue it because of my PCOS Igot a cyst on my ovarie each time so they had to keep canceling the cycle. I know they say that you should only do six cycles and most of the time it takes a few for your body to adjust. Just hang in there you know I hate when people say this to me but if you stress or don't find ways to release it I truley believe it won't work. It has taken three years of going through this to learn how to try to not make it my whole life. Did they say you for sure have PCOSand why?

I guess you could say I'm borderline, as to be clinically diagnosed the hormone ratio has to be 3:1. Mine was 2-1/2:1. This is through blood test.

Hey have they ever done a vaginal ultra sound to look at your ovaries?


tiggerpounce418 - April 19

no. i've had ultrasounds (regular) years ago, when I had cysts on my ovaries. pcos was never brought up then. actually it wasn't brought up now by my current doc until i asked about it.

Tigger, I am so sorry to hear about the neg. I'm not up to date on iui, and I don't really understand the protocol for clomid. If it is supposed to mature and multiply eggs I don't know why you can't look at them via u/s? I apologize for a possibly dumb question.
Good luck with your next cycle. cassandra

Tigger, sorry about the negative. I hate not seeing that pink line. good luck with your next cycle. Take care and keep in touch.

I am so sorry. Try to stay positive and good luck with your next cycle.

Tigger, they found out that I had pcos with an ultra sound vaginally because you can see them that way. I am so sorry about your results

I think when I go to the RE, they will probably do a vaginal ultrasound. I guess since my blood work showed it (hormone ratio) and I have all of the classic symptoms of PCOS, my dr just stopped there. Maybe they might want to go in to see how bad it is. I don't know.

I wish you the best of luck. That is why I am having to do invitro. I am so thankful that there is another way to bypass my ovaries to get pregnant. I so feel what you're going through!

Has the RE mentioned ovarian drilling? Just the name sounds like something only a nazi man would come up with but I hear it yields tremendously successful results in getting pg. I believe it requires a laparoscopy at the least but it could work for your situation. I hope you get some answers soon!

I haven't seen RE yet. Currently treated by ob/gyn. My only treatment is Clomid w/ timed intercourse. I'm on the 2nd cycle (actually haven't started yet). Each month he increases the dosage. This month is 2 pills/day. Next will be 3 pills/day. 4 pills/day is the max. If I'm still not preg, at that point I'll be going to RE. I am considering going before then actually, but am not sure yet.

Tigger... in my opinion, you should go to the RE sooner rather than later. They have so much more knowledge/experience with this than a regular ob.
good luck my dear.... many hugs coming your way!!

Hi! I have gone through a couple of cycles of IUI and my breasts get really really tender in the last week or so. This is because before I ovulate they inject me with HCG, and that gives your body the feeling of being pregnant. The first time I did IUI I felt sure I was pregnant because of the tender breasts, but the second time I knew to expect that I would feel like I was pregnant. Its the drugs that do it!
