I am very very new to the world of forums but I am in dire need of some support! I have been diagnosed with both hypothyroidism and Pcos since I was in my tween/teen years. I use to see an endocrinologist regularly until my college years and now I have my pcos and my OB/gyn check my thyroid levels (which have been stable for years on 75mcg of Levothyroxine). I had been taking BCP since I was dx with pcos as a teen and have been off of them since my husband and I started our ttc journey in March 2011. Since then, I have only had AF once in the beginning of June 2011, and then nothing until my OB/gyn gave me progesterone for 3 months over the summer/fall. With no luck in getting pregnant on our own, I was prescribed 50mg of Clomid. My bmi is in the good range, as my thyroid is under controll, though I do not know my exact tsh level…but I think it’s in the 2.0 range.
As of late, I took progesterone, had AF, and on CD 5-9 took Clomid. I had side-effects galore! Hot flashes, mood swings, nausea, headaches, etc. but those quickly went away after my last pill. Now I am on CD 17 and have been testing myself with a kit to see if I am ovulating…so far I’m only getting a faint line and a bold line…I’m hoping I’ll get the double lines soon, if at all! Until then I keep imagining cramps but its hard to tell if it’s all in my head or real.
I have read from others that O may not come until CD 20 or longer but I am worried that maybe I’m not doing enough to get pregnant!!! I can barely sleep at night from all the anxiety, hence why I’m writing this now at 1 in the morning! Is there anyone out there who has had success getting pregnant with just Clomid and is suffering from pcos and hypothyroidism? I plan on asking my OB/gyn for a referral to a Reproductive Endocrinologist when I see her in a couple weeks.
Any advice or stories to help calm my nerves would be greatly appreciated! We’ve been ttc for almost a year now, but having my dx’es hovering over my head since my teens has made this an ordeal I’ve been dreading to battle and I’d love for some inspiration to keep battling on.
