This will actually be my 1st post, hope it's helpful.
Here's my story:
1. What's your diagnosis? (PCOS/Endo/etc)
6 months before the wedding - had myself checked (TVS, etc.) no problems. Around 3 months into the wedding, went back to OB now diagnosed with PCOS. Had a full work-up - all the blood tests, checking of tubes - everything else fine.
2. How many years TTC?
1 year 8 months of no contraceptives.
Aggressive TTC for 3 cycles
Charted my temps for 3 months or so
3. What meds did you take while TTC?
1 cycle of Clomid and HCG shot
2 cycles of Letrozole and HCG shots
4. Any fertility supplements?
Acupuncture for around 3-5 months for overall wellness
Folic Acid (in case of pregnancy)
Megamen Vitamin for Hubby (although he has no problems)
5. Name of OB - Hospital/Clinic
3 aggressive TTC cycles - Dra. Manalo in Makati Med and Asian
Acupuncture - TCM in Glorietta
6. Message/Tips for those still TTC
PRAY and BE PATIENT. Am almost 7 weeks pregnant now but I haven't seen an OB/acupuncturist in the last 5 months. I stopped charting my temps awhile back too. We stopped trying for awhile already and I just prayed for acceptance for whatever God's will is. Am still in my 20s so I wasn't in a rush but it was quite frustrating, especially when I was supposedly perfectly healthy (never missed a period til now when I got pregnant, no other problems). We just stopped thinking about it and stressing about it and it happened.
We found out about it a couple of days after my husband got a better job
Everything in God's time talaga.
Also, OB now, Dra. Illescas, suspects (seen sa TVS but not confirmed through laparoscopy) that I may have endometria in my right ovary, which would supposedly have made it more difficult to conceive. My last OB visit (with Dra. Illescas also) around 5 months ago before this pregnancy, no endometria seen. You can never say talaga. Just don't lose hope and keep the faith!
