Hi, I am new to this. My husband and I have been ttc for a year now and we have been doing injections with Gonal-F for three months. Prior we were using Clomid. I have PCOS and I get very frustrated each month that it doesn't work. I find myself crying alot. Just started a new cycle and will go back to check on follicle size Wednesday. Anyone else doing this? My husband is so very supportive. I am only making about 1 egg each cycle but my doctor says he is happy with that. What is your opinion? Thanks and best of luck to you all!

Hi Ali,
You are not alone. I am new to this all as well. I have had 3 miscarriages over the past 5 years. All 3 times I was not trying to conceive but it happened naturally. SInce my last miscarriage in Dec. they did an infertility work-up to determine if something was wrong that I was havine the miscarriages. (2 were unexplained 1 was a chromosome abbormality) Though all the testing they determined I have hormone problem with my estrogen. It is very frustrating since I had apparently didn't have this problem before.
I began taking Clomid this month. I had to give myself a shot to induce ovulation since I was not having an LH surge and the follicle was ready.
Tomorrow is my preg test and I just feel it is a BFN and af will arrive on schedule Sunday.
I can relate to your frustration, it is hands down the most challenging experience I have ever had to go though. I know I often feel so alone. MY dh is wonderful, but his understanding of how this is so hard on me is sometimes out of his reach. He just can not comprehend how hard it really is.
When they were checking my follicle size this month I had numerous follicles, however only 1 kept growing.
I don't know if I have been any hope to you, I just wanted you to know you are not alone and you can get a lot of support from this site.
Take care and good luck.
