Not much to report but playing the waiting game. We plan on trying more and hoping for no period, meaning positive results. Even if I get a period, that would be great news, too, because this tells me that my body is at least giving me a natural period.
I spoke to my doctor on the phone the other day and I told him about me getting my period without progesterones. He thinks that this is great news because that tells us that my eggs are starting to ovulate! He suggests that I continue the Clomid treatment for another 3 months. I had recently reached out to him because I had read about Polycystic ovary syndrome
(PCOS) in a magazine article and felt that I was going through some of the symptoms.
“Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. Infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne and obesity can all occur in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Menstrual abnormality may signal the condition in adolescence, or PCOS may become apparent later following weight gain or difficulty becoming pregnant.The exact cause of polycystic ovary syndrome is unknown. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome may have trouble becoming pregnant due to infrequent or lack of ovulation.” ( http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/polycystic-ovary-syndrome/DS00423)
I wanted to schedule a pelvic exam and have my doctor look over my hormone levels from my lab tests, but I didn’t need to. Luckily, my doctor said that because I had a successful period this round, we should be fine. We’ll go through 3 cycles and go from there. I was getting worried because if you have PCOS, then you can also have complications when giving birth and fetal death. Let’s hope for good news…
