Hello everyone! I thought I'd introduce myself and ask a question.
My name is Kristin. I'm 24 and married my husband, Ben, last November. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 14 after I developed long term amenorrhea (longest time between periods was 3 years). I was an obese teenager, I almost reached 300lbs. I had a gastric bypass when I was 21, and after I got under 200lbs I started having monthly periods. I've had them every month since Nov 2007. When Ben and I got married, Ben and I decided to TTC. I thought because of my monthly periods and weight loss I wouldn't have problems getting pregnant. It's been 10 months now, I just had my period for the month of August, and I'm not pregnant yet. :( We're thinking our next step is clomid, and we are preparing to pursue that route.
So, I have a couple questions:
1. Has anyone tried the supplement d-chiro-inositol (d-Pinitol)? Has anyone had success getting pregnant with it? Do you think it's worth a try or just go with the clomid because the supplement is a waste of money (it's expensive from what I've seen),
2. Can I get prescribed clomid by a regular OB/GYN, or do I need to find a reproductive endocrinologist? I'm thinking of finding one anyway because my current OB/GYN scratched inside me my last exam, but I wanted to ask.
Good luck to everyone, and hopefully someday soon I'll get to post a BFP. :)
