So my Partner and I have been trying for 8 months and nothing is happening. 3 years ago we did get pregnant (after 2 months of trying after I stopped the pill) but unfortunately had a misacrriage. Since then I haven't taken the pill. after stopping the pill I realised that my cycles are a bit irregular and the Dr thinks I may have polycystic ovaries. They did lots of blood tests and said it's not the menaupose. I am 37 years old. My Dr said I need to lose weight (I am about 14st) but I was the same weight when I got pregnant last time...

Anyway I think I need treatment but am not sure which. My partner's sperm was checked and it's all good on his side....

What do you think? Perhaps these meds that make you ovulate?

Help! would really appreciate your advice!

Was it clomid he prescribed you? Clomid is a drag that encourages your ovaries tor elease an egg each month. The side effect is that if you are ovulating you might get two eggs released (so could get twins etc).

Do you know exactly in your cycle that you ovulate? It could easily be that you ovulate late or early and so you are DTD at the wrong time of the month. I would be unwilling to try climid unless I knew for certain i was having trouble ovulating.

Thank you for your reply. No we haven't been prescribed anything. The dr said I need to lose weight and won't help us but I know there is something wrong. I know I did ovulate several time last year but nothing happened. I am also pretty sure I have polycystic ovaries. Does Clomide sound like the best option?

Ovulation has been anywhere between the 11th and 24th day if the cycle with irregular periods and sometime no period or no ovulation... Any thought what it might be??

Will they give you a day 21 blood test to see if you are ovulating? If you aren't this will give you extra ammo to be referred however I do know that before any fertility treatment they want you to be a certain weight but what is your bmi? Maybe the bmi will be within their 'acceptable' range. I understand how frustrating it is to jump through hoops to get something that comes so naturally to everyone else...
