    Hey all

    Wowsers, it's been a long time since I've posted in this forum. I used it a lot in the led up to conceiving baby #2, kept me sane!

    Anyway reason for the post today. I'm wanting to try for baby #3!! Exciting game stuff. Let me give you a little history, I'll try not to bore you lol

    So I conceived my first child neutrally at the age of 19. Split with his dad. Met my current partner many years later and decided to ttc for child #2. Ended up ttc for near 3 years, had all the tests under the sun performed nothing was found with OH. They found cysts on my ovaries - but don't have other markers for PCOS :-/ saw specialists and he, against his better judgement (I was a sobbing begging mess in his office, poor man) gave me a trial of 3 months 50g clomid. I'm very fortunate that the second cycle worked.

    I now have to very healthy children but would love to add to my brood if I can.

    My question is will I have to go to a specialist again and have all the tests done. And will I be allowed clomid again.

    Thanks for any replies. And if this is in the wrong category i'll apologise now xxx

    Hi hun

    Sorry I can't really help re the clomid and tests, but I just wanted to say that the only way I got diagnosed with PCOS was from a scan too. Other than the cysts and dodgy hormones, I have no other symptoms. I over-responded to clomid though.

    If you can't get clomid, you could try soy isoflavones and/or chromium with cinnamon. Soy isoflavones are like clomid, and chromium with cinnamon is like natural metformin. It's really helped me although I'm yet to get pregnant.

    Good luck xxx

    If it was me I would go back straight away. I'm pregnant now after cloned treatment, if I don't think I'm too old, will be asking for it pretty soon again afterwards.

    Thanks girls. I'm going to ring the doctors this morning. I'll have to see the gp for her to make my referral.

    Thanks phonixgirl I'll give the soy isoflavones a try if I have no luck with the specialist. I know previously the doctor was reluctant to give the clomid in case my ovaries became over stimulated, I was very lucky. PCOS sucks, I hope you have your happy ending soon cc

    Claire congratulations, wishing you and happy healthy pregnancy :) xx

    Mine were over-stimulated on clomid, it's not nice! It did stop my spotting though which suggests it helped something but they won't give it me now. I'm going to try a tiny dose of soy though I think xx
