Hi, everyone!

My name is Sapna, and the last time I posted was almost a year ago! Well, it turns out that I have PCOS,  hence my weird periods during that time. Was diagnosed last July, and have been on Metformin since then. Lost a lot of weight (15-16 pounds, a few more to go!), started getting normal periods on my own i.e. without Provera, again in November (knock on wood), and started TTC again, beginning last October. I took Clomid and Ovidrel and was on estrogen patches this past cycle... But now it turns out that I have thyroiditis or hypo-thyroidism, and may have to delay the TTC process again... I'm 42 now and don't have time on my side... Ah well... My husband and I hope it happens for us this year, and I hope the same for all of you... I'm very sorry for any losses anyone has had recently, and am sending them stick-to-it baby vibes...

Hi, Melissa, Likewise! I will know more about my thyroid in late-March... Thankfully, it's not severe hypothyroidism. They just want it to be closer to 2; it's 4.something now when they repeated the blood test on Feb 5 and was 6.something before, after a fasting blood test on Jan. 7. Hope you're doing well. Sapna

Hi Sapna, it's nice to meet you!  I'm glad they figured out you had PCOS, it's a step in the right direction.  It sounds like you are responding well to Metformin, although it stinks that you might have to delay again.  When will you find out about your thyroid?
