With my little Vitu, it had taken exactly eight months of constant trying for us to get pregnant. My Gyn (Doctor A) then had diagnosed us both and was of the opinion that I didn't have PCO; I ovulated well (I'd gone once for a follicular study on 13,14,15th day of the cycle). The only concern was my H's count. At 32m/ml and 40% motility, the Gyn thought it was a problem and gave him lot of pills to take. Luckily we got pregnant after few months.
This time in April, I went to a completely new doctor (Doctor B), very famous in Dubai, who conducted Insulin Resistance test for me and on the basis of that concluded I was mild PCOS and put me on metformin. About my H's problem, she said its not a problem at all and he doesn't need medication. 'Since you had managed to get pregnant once before with that count, its not an issue' was her exact words.
Okay, August is the second month of trying again. Few days ago we visited Doctor C in Dubai who is a high risk specialist (didn't go back to Doctor B because she is against us getting pregnant before 2012, Doctor C thinks its fine to get pregnant now) - who put me on Letrozole. With roughly 25-28 days period, one should ovulate at least around CD 15 correct?
I tried the OPK from CD 9 onwards till CD 17. No positive. With my little Vitu, I know I used to ovulate without assistance. So, it baffles me how am not able to ovulate even with Letrozole. (I think its also called Femara).
I did the temperature charting too but its pretty confusing because they oscillated between 35.9 to 36.2 degrees throughout the cycle and on CD 17 and CD 18, they have been 36.3 degree celsius.
So we have decided to go to a full time infertility specialist next month (That's when we get a soonest appointment). This clinic does IUI & IVF etc. Am planning to try a IUI for us as all this is SO maddening.
Does anyone has any suggestions to offer?
Meanwhile, just thinking about my sweet baby son and waiting to see him again.
