Hi everyone, I'm new here

Here's a little about me. Been trying for a baby for over 3 years now, I was diagnosed with PCOS and was put on tamoxifen to help ovulation. Just been through 3 goes of IUI just waiting to see if last go has worked but not feeling very positive. Next step is ivf so just wanted to see if anyone else has pcos and what their journey has been like. Thanks 😀

Hey, I have PCOS and endo - I've had 7 unsuccessful cycles of clomid. Last year I had my first fresh IVF cycle fell pregnant and miscarried. Have since had 2 FET cycles and waiting to start stimming for my 4th cycle (2nd fresh). Sorry I can't offer any success stories but I always think we've just got to keep hope that it'll happen. Hopefully your IUI brings positive news 🤞xx

Hi, I have PCOS too. Have been TTC for over 2 years now. 6 failed rounds of clomid (awful awful drug) and have just had our first unsuccessful round of IVF (see my posts). Waiting for our FET in a couple of months. I would love to give you a success story, but we're still on our journey. It's been bloody tough at times & hard to stay positive throughout. I'm just trying to be kind to myself and let myself feel what I need to feel without judgement (though I don't always manage it!) the ladies on here are wonderful and so supportive. I do feel like TTC becomes an obsession and can take over your life, so since my BFN I've been trying to keep busy and distract myself with other things. I must say I am generally feeling more positive now and having more good days than bad since my BFN - time is definitely a healer. I keep reading everyone else's posts thinking will that be me, but I guess we all make our own story. I'm hoping we'll be successful and still believe IVF will work for us.

I know it's hard to be positive so I'd say don't put any pressure on yourself. There's lots of posts here about the pressure to be positive and worrying that a negative mindset will lead to failure, but many have said the your emotional state doesn't actually have an effect on the outcome - a lot of it is just down to luck.

Anyway, wishing u love and luck on your journey. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed for everyone on this journey. Always here if you need to chat so PM if you like. Take care xxx

Hi I'm currently 9 weeks pregnant with pco don't loose faith. We went straight to IVF ICSI as we also have extreme male factor also. First round I really struggled with poor quality eggs and after a good collection of 17 ended up with next to nothing. However it didn't stop me getting pregnant. I unfortunately miscarried at 6 weeks. I then set to work improving my egg quality by cutting out sugar, carbs and alcohol and amazingly it paid off. I'm also on metformin. Good luck!! Xx
