Fuzzy Math: My attempt at being positiveJune 10, 2009
January 2008: Began TTC with undiagnosed PCOS
February 2008: OBGYN insists no PCOS w/out doing bloodwork or ultrasound. Tells me to TTC on 14, 15, 17, 19 of my cycle.
April 2008: Switch OBGYNs. New OBGYN gives me progesterone to induce period. Tells me after two cycles he’ll give me Clomid. No mention of PCOS or investigating potential causes of infertility. [and yes though the official year hadnt passed to term me IF, I knew I was. Sometimes you just know]
May 2008: Give up on OBGYNs. TTC in futility.
September 2008: Switch OBGYN. New one begins blood work to determine PCOS. Identifies based on blood work I have PCOS.
October 2008: Ultrasound confirms PCOS.
November 2008: Put on Metformin
December 2008: Begin therepeutic dosage of Metformin
February 2009: Get pregnant
April 2009: Miscarry at 11 weeks.
Jack says that technically all the months we TTC before getting medication for PCOS were in vain due to the fact no little eggies were coming out to play. So really, our journey began December 2008 when I began Metformin. So really, I conceived after two months of TTC. So really, there’s nothing to worry about. Getting preggers will be a breeze.
So many retorts are waiting to come out like, the meds don’t fix PCOS. I can still struggle to conceive despite it. There could be other stuff wrong. Um, did you forget i miscarried? It’ s not just getting pregnant I’m concerned with. And so on and so forth, but I will not say those things today!
I guess I can choose to look at the glass half full since my reality remains the same. If seeing a half filled glass makes it easier, maybe its worth it. This is how I feel right now. Ask me again when my period comes.
