Hello to all ICLW’ers. I have done ICLW in the past, but I have sat out the last two or three so I’m glad to get back into things and meet new people through it 😉
What’s my IF story?
Been married to the hub’s for four years. I have PCOS and irregular cycles. Was on the pill for over ten years and then decided to go off. I was a little different in that I had seen my RE in the past just for PCOS stuff because he is a big dude in the field. He always said I will need clomid when I was ready to ttc. So we went to him after not getting my period for three months. I have been cycling with him now for a bit over a year. So yes, I meet the infertile criteria.
I have done three cycles of clomid, one and a half of femara, and three and a half of follistim. My last cycle was just recently cancelled (friday) after injecting myself in the stomach with Follistim for over three weeks with follies that didn’t seem to want to grow and decreasing estrogen levels at the end. Right now I’m finishing my first week of birth control and hoping it increases my estrogen level a bit and brings my period at the end. After having three really light periods, really long cycles, and never having a lining over 6mm, I’ve started to realize that I may have a lining or estrogen issue so I am looking to learn more about that and I will be meeting with my RE for a consult next week to see if we can change anything.
Now that we have gotten through the heavy stuff let me tell you a quick synopsis of me. I work in the research field, I’m a bit of a dork, and a bit of a tech nerd. I am a giant kid at heart, I like cutesy things, and am looking to make new bloggie friends!
