    Hi everyone! Married in October. Started TTC in November. I have hypothyroid and PCOS and doc says I will need help ovulating. I have an ultrasound Monday and he will decide if he's going to do ovarian drilling first or just start me on Clomid. I'm 33 and my husband is 43. He has two kids, I have none. Never tried! Right now I am having a very painful medically induced period. Ugh! My labs came back "normal" which I know doesn't mean much except that I MAY not have a very severe case of PCOS and may respond well to treatment. We'll see!

    I'm also drinking Fertilitea, eating healthy low-carb/Paleo, and exercising.

    Best wishes to all of you! I hope we get our BFPs in 2013!

    Hi all! My fiancé and I have been officially trying to conceive since June, but we've off birth control for over a year. We haven't been to a specialist yet, but my GP has said she suspects that I have PCOS. I'm still holding out hope that we can get pregnant on our own, but we're in a crunch for time because I'm 38 (he's 34). So we have some obstacles. If we don't get pregnant by March, we're going to the doctor.

    He's still pretty hopeful, but me not so much. I worry about whether or no we can conceive, but I also worry about what happens if we do. I know if I get pregnant, it'll be high risk. I also worry about being an older parent. I want to be able to keep up with my kid, live long enough to meet my grandchildren.

    Thanks for starting this thread. All of my friends already have kids and can't understand my conception frustration.

    Good luck @missusaytch! I have PCOS as well just starting Clomid too! I recently went to a new doctor and was so excited to have such an encouraging and positive doctor. She firmly believes that Clomid is going to make it happen for me and is the first professional to be so sure of it. I cannot tell you how amazing this was. There is hope! I hope your ultrasound goes well and you will be able to get the best treatment for you and your body.

    @roseymaam I'm sorry that you are so discouraged. Good luck in the next two months and hopefully by March everything will be more clear for what you want and think is best for your life. My fingers are very crossed for you!

    Thanks @megmarie! I feel very hopeful!

    @roseymaam, I know this is a sensitive subject and how awful it can be to get unwanted advice. But I am gonna risk it because I feel like it's important for me to say: trying naturally is awesome, of course. But at 38 if you have been told you might have PCOS, you should really be screened for it. In my case, my doc told me there was no point whatsoever in "giving it some time" naturally because I was not ovulating. It would have been a waste of time for me.

    If you are charting and know you ovulate, ignore me. But if you don't, I urge you to see a gyno and get assessed. If you were 28 it would be different but you will already be considered at advanced maternal age.

    I also strongly recommend the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. I learned so much I didn't even know I didn't know.

    I have a friend who just had her first child at 39. Textbook pregnancy, perfect baby. It happens many times a day, every day. But time is a factor. I would just hate to see you waste time when you could be getting much needed help.

    I hope you haven't taken any offense. I wish you - all of you - all the best, lots of baby dust and a fertile, fecund, frolicsome 2013!

    @roseymaam I actually agree with @missusaytch about going now. If you think you have PCOS then going sooner rather than later would be beneficial. I am in my mid twenties and my doctors have always said that when I am ready to have a baby, to go straight in for some type of fertility treatment. For me, at least, it wasn't even worth seeing if I could conceive on my own. I don't know if that seems like an easy way out but being proactive is important to how I mentally deal with my fertility issues.

    Hope that helps :/
