I was diagnosed with PCOS 3 years ago when my husband and I decided to TTC.

I never got AF on my own. I am 5'2 and about 100 lbs. I was on progestrone to get AF and clomid to try and make me ovulate for about 4 cycles. I got AF everytime but only ovulated once (obviously didn't get pregnant though). I also had the dye test and there is no blockage in my F.T.

It has been about a year since I did my last cycle with clomid and progestrone. Since then I had a visit from AF last June and then again in November without any drugs. Other than that nothing has really changed.

About 3 weeks ago my nipples became very sore. (I have never had sore nipples or breasts). I think my nipples have also grown a bit. Then about a week ago my breasts became sore/tender. I have had some discharge as well. Last week the discharge was very sticky. My breasts are very small to begin with but both my husband and I think they have gotten bigger. Today I have been suffering stomach pain (thought I ate something bad) but then I had a very small amount of blood.

 I have taken 2 pregnancy tests both have been negative. I have a doctors appointment on Tues. Should I get my hopes up that I might be pregnant???????????????????

Also, I know with PCOS we are generally more hairy. I thankfully am not. However, today I notice one very long hair on my chin :smileysad:

Hi there and welcome. I am sorry for your struggles! I have been there. It took me 5 years to conceive my daughter. I did about 14 cycles of Clomid that didn't work even though I ovulated every time. The thing that did it was learning about the core issue of PCOS, insulin resistance, and treating that. Once I did, I was pg in 5 months! Has your doc talked to you about this?

Sorry about the hair too. At this point it is my major issue. It is difficult to get rid of even if you are treating the PCOS. Sadly, PCOS tends to get worse the longer it is left untreated. It is good you are looking into it now! :smileyhappy:

Take care and ++++++++++++thoughts!
