  1. Some more helpful information (re: How I Beat PCOS)

    Yesterday I posted the blog about how I beat my PCOS after finding out my symptoms were due to yeast. (See blog for that info - it's titled "How I Beat PCOS.")

    I just wanted to post this followup really quick because I believe it's very valuable information. If you take the yeast quiz (see below) and find out you likely have a yeast issue, and if you live in the United States, you can go to this website to find a doctor who will treat you for it: http://hsionline.com/findadoc/ ...

  2. How I Beat PCOS

    I wanted to post this in my blog because I feel a lot of women in here could benefit from this. I do have this info on my profile already and have posted in the forums about it as well (and in separate blog entries) but I wanted to post a single entry about it so that more people might see it. I feel many women could benefit from this information.



    I was diagnosed with PCOS in early 2010. I finally conceived for the first time in January 2011 after TTC for close to ...

  3. In Response to Mrs. Pain, Audi, and Princess.

    by , 03-14-2012 at 07:49 PM (Got To Get My Heart Back)
    First of all thanks for talking to me about this. Mrs.Pain I'm starting to feel a really impersonal vibe from my RE and his office mates as well. When it comes down to it, it's a job for them. I'm not asked for them to hold my hand and sing with me, but at least be available. I pull hope from just about anything. When it took so long for me to get through to them, I honestly thought the best. So I held off, but honestly, I felt symptoms earlier in the cycle when I thought I was so many days DPO ...

  6. Weighing Options....

    by , 03-13-2012 at 01:20 PM (Got To Get My Heart Back)
    I'm still not sure if I want to go through with this cycle or not. Perhaps I will just for the sake of the whole third time's a charm thing. I'm looking at getting insurance coverage for myself outside of Tricare that actually covers IVF instead of this so called discount BS my RE told me about. IVF is seriously expensive and I know that we can't afford to spend that kind of money right now, and probably not until we're in our 30s, because we have other goals and expenses. My RE started talking ...

  7. HSG Fears

    So I called to schedule my HSG test this morning for early next week. I've heard conflicting accounts of how it feels, how long it takes, how you feel afterward, etc., but I guess for the most part, I'm optimistic. I know it'll be uncomfortable, but this is my last step. I have butterflies about the whole thing. If it comes back with no results, I guess that'll be a good thing (?) Then again, it'll mean that despite all I'm doing, I of course am still not pregnant. I'm almost hoping they find something ...

  8. Got The Results..

    by , 03-12-2012 at 03:24 PM (Got To Get My Heart Back)
    After calling my doctor's office 4 times today, because they took their time calling me back I got my results, and it's not good. My progesterone levels were 1.18, no O over here. I'm confused because of all the things my doctor said, but at this point, I'm convinced that the charting, and the imaging collectively don't mean crap. As of now I don't even think I can take anymore. I had so much hope after that doctor's visit. I was over the moon thinking that I had ovulated and now this. It's definitely ...

  10. Today...

    by , 03-11-2012 at 01:12 PM (Got To Get My Heart Back)
    Today I have no tests that I care to use and I'm waiting for Tuesday test again. I know that my HCG levels are slow to rise and I know that I'm just stressing myself out by dipping sticks on a daily basis in a effort to catch pregnancy early because I am supposed to use progesterone suppositories. I tried to tell myself that the dipping wouldn't begin until AF was late. It's due on the 12th and as of now there is a lot of cramping but no sign that she's actually wanting to show up here. With a possible ...
