• Today I was diagnosed with insulin resistant PCOS. After two miscarriages this year it prompted some investigating, the Dr. also thinks my progesterone is out of whack. I start metformin on Tuesday and then I see a new Dr. my reg OB referred me to on Oct 7th. He is a reproductive endocrinologist, I’m so anxious and excited. Sunday would have…[Read more]

  • moalla – when they gave me provera it took me a while to start, I started aunt flow about 28 days from when I took the first pill. It was all most like a ‘cycle’ kind of strange the way it worked. The Dr. said if I hadn’t gotten a period 6 weeks after taking it she would have given me another round.

  • synth – I did bleed with both of my miscarriages. With my first though the bleeding had to be ‘induced’ I exeperience a missed miscarriage and 2 weeks after they told me I had lost my numbers weren’t dropping all that much so they put some pills in me to ‘move things along’. With my 2nd one I bled but it ended up being an incomplete miscarriage…[Read more]

  • syn – I’m guessing you mean metformin. My Dr. did a glucose and insulin test. My glucose was in the low to normal range but my insulin was very high.

  • Ladies questioning negative tests – yes it is possible to get a negative, this is from testing too early. Everyone ovulates at different times so someone getting a positive on the day their period is missed just means they ovulated at the average time. My friend didnt get a positive until she was all most late for a 2nd period. She was also…[Read more]

    katiey – are you asking if i BBT chart my cycle?

    Syn – My friend has PCOS and she does not have the insulin resistance but her Dr. still put her on the metformin and she was pregnant once cycle later! So even if you don’t have the insulin resistance there is a good chance it will do you some good. Good luck!

    Still no spotting or bleeding also no cramping. I am looking forward to prooving the dr wrong, when he gave up I pressed for a solution, he gave me progesterone ‘to make me feel better’. He was the dr on call at the time. I am looking forward to hearing from my dr on Monday to see what she thinks! Also getting my HCG checked again.

    jdubb – so funny i have the same problem with holes in the walls, thats why i get creative with the paint…our rooms sound very similar lol. As for the rest of the house the only thing I have hanging is a clock and it took me all most 3 months to put the hole in the wall for that because I wanted to be SURE that was where I wanted to hang it.

  • AMK1984 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    Keegan80 – you are a very strong person. I have some friends right now that found out at 20 weeks there baby was diagnosed with oliogohydramnios. Which means the baby has no kidneys, stomach, or bladder. On top of this they had lost a lot of amniotic fluid. The dr gave them the option to terminate which they could not do either. The baby is…[Read more]
