Our TTC Journey

May 2006: Removed Nuvaring and officially started to TTC

September 2007: Decided to go for medical assistance with TTC. OB/GYN did annual exam as well as fertility workup. Doctor did an internal ultrasound as well as bloodwork. Internal ultrasound showed very thin lining as well as immature and limited amount of follicles. Bloodwork confirmed that I have PCOS with IR. Doctor started me on 500mg of Metformin Q D. Scheduled HSG at start of next cycle.

October 2007: HSG complete. Painful but good news. Everything is nice and open, dye flowed freely. Uterus is right shape and position. Cervix is tilted. Doctor orders 850mg Metformin Q D.

November 2007: Start Clomid 100MG CD 5-9. Ovulation on CD 17.

December 2007: Start Clomid 150MG CD 5-9. Ovulation on CD 16. Intense pain from left ovary area. Doctor has me come in for internal u/s. 1.5 cm cyst has developed. Given pain medication. Decision not to remove cyst due to it being very small. HCG Beta done 2dpo. (.73)

January 2008: Start Clomid 150MG CD 5-9. DH will have SA on January 1. I will go in for internal u/s on CD 12 and if enough follicles are present will have HCG Trigger shot.
