Well I went to the DR's and they did a vaginal US and found out that I am poly cystic and it doesn't look as though I am PG, although he did say to wait another week then test again and if still no AF he gave me 6 100mg Capsules of Prometrium to take and then he said I should get AF within 2-3 days. He is hoping that I am still regular after that, but if not he is going to put me on something that will shrink the Cyst's and also at the same time increase fertility, but that will be in 2-3 months when out insurance is in place. He thought that I didn't ovulate until I told him about my charting and stuff and he then told me to retest before I take the progesterone just incase cause he doesn't want me aborting if I am PG. But for now it looks like I am not PG (5 - pee tests) so I am just waiting. I am not upset that badly, just happy to know that there IS a reason that AF is a no show!!!

((Jess)) I just came over to see how you all were doing. I'm sorry to hear you aren't pg but I'm glad they figured out what was going on and are working to correct it.

GL!

Jess,

I'm sorry things didn't turn out better for you but I'm glad your doctor is doing something about it.

I have a question...what exactly does poly cystic mean (I assume that's PCOS)? Is it just having cysts on your ovaries or is it something different? I'm also going to a TV u/s (on Friday) and won't get to see my midwife so I want to try to get as much info out of the u/s tech as I can so I don't have to wait 2 weeks to know something.

They way it was describe to me (someone correct me if I am wrong) is I have little tiny cyst's that go all the way around both overies that change my hormones so I am producing too much testosterone, so that is why I am late (they didn't totally rule out PG tho yet.) I also have high blood pressure too so when we get insurance they are gonna work on that by giving me a med for diabetics that has the side effects of shrinking cyst's and incresing fertility, which is good. We are gonna go on charting and play it by ear till we ge tthe insurance, then start everything if nothing is regular yet. *crossing fingers* I hope everyone gets their BFP real soon I am keeping my fingers crossed. I am going to be putting a lot of effort into my horses right now and try to sell some breedings to my stallion to make some money. I will still be here to update as well as offer advice where I can, but I won't be here as often!!! I luv you all you are a god sent every one of you!!!

((((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))))))))) Jess, I'm so sorry!! At least you found a dr and one who's going to work on this with you. I'm sorry I haven't been on the board or email much these past few days- work has been killing me and I had an allergic reaction to a med that dr started me on last Thursday- so I've kind of been out of it. More (((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))! I hope your cycle isn't too hard on you when that prometrium kicks in. Hang in there and just keep charting and on to the next cycle, you'll get that BFP soon- I know it!!! LOLove, Connie

((((HUGS)))) Jess! I'm sorry the news wasn't good, but I'm so glad you found a different doctor who will listen to you and actually DO something! I'm crossing my fingers that they are wrong and you actually are pg, but if not, I know it will be a relief to be treating the problem. Hope everything works out for you soon.

Jess,

{{{{HUGS}}}} I'm so sorry to hear that. And at the same time I'm glad you found a good Dr. and now know more about what's going on with your body. There's still a chance that you're pg, right? And I still hope that you really are.

I found out yesterday that I've got a fibroadenoma(sp?) in my left breast, it's pretty big and I'll need a surgery. Dr. said he doesn't really like to operate on pg women so it means that we'll stop trying for a couple of months, till we save up enough money and have the surgery. We won't be using any BC though, so if I do get pg before the surgery, I'll be happy. If not, it means it's better for me to have that surgery first. It's kind of hard to know that we can't really keep trying, but we are learning to be patient and know that the things will work the way they are supposed to.

Again, {{{HUGS}}} to you. You're in my prayers...

Olya :)

Oh, I'm so sorry Jess! I thought for SURE you were pregnant! Well, there's still hope, I haven't given up yet anyway.

I hope everything works out with this, and I'm glad that you aren't too upset over it all. What a long frustrating trail!
