Hi,

If anyone has had a similar situation as me, can you please post to this topic? I am having a very hard time finding anyone who has had no cycle for this many years.

Hi M, welcome to the board. I would be very concerned also about starting IVF without having a period for so long. I don't really have any suggestions for you, but wanted to suggest you post this over on a couple of different boards. The members there are familiar with a lot of the treatments and meds:

I still think I would consider PCOS as a possible problem, that worries me that they wrote it off so easily. If you don't feel confident in your current RE, you should seek out a new one. It doesn't sound like they are really covering all the possibilities.

Thank you. Currently i have an appointment (just got today) with mayo clinic endocrinology. also an apt with gyno there. in hopes they end up working together on the issue. not one of my doctors (i have been to SO many - including the country's leading "PCOS expert" ) and not one of them cares. Not one of them has shown any concern. They make it like it is not a big deal. An MD with hollistic approaches is the only person i ever got anywhere with but she had to let me go as this was not her domain any further. She is the one who forced the MRI regardless of the normal prolactin levels.
