Hi! My name is Beth. I am 29 years old, been married for 6 years and have 1 daughter, age 4 years. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2007 when I was unable to get pregnant. I was put on a method with Femara (LOVE IT) and I was pregnant, but m/c. 3 months later, I did the same method, but with progesterone and baby aspirin. I got pregnant in the first cycle, again, this time with twins! One twin did not make it past the first trimester, so I had my one girl. The pregnancy was horrible, with ultra sounds weekly and pre-eclampsia! I had my daughter 11 days early, after 3 weeks of inductions. She was a very healthy 6lb 14 oz and has had no problems as a child!

Now, I am turning 30 in September, reaching a point where we want to complete our family. We had tried on our own from October-June, and have had our first cycle of Clomid in July, with no success.

Since my progesterone was measuring at only a .43, they are doubling my dose of Clomid for August, and we will hope I can conceive. If not, we will go to 200mg for September.

It's taking a lot longer than the last time, and I am nervous it won't work.
