I wasn't trying to conceive, but I did! I had on-time ovulation on my own--first time ever, since I started my period at 12 years old. It may be too much info, but it was also 4-day-old sperm! I put my husband on the same diet I am on, and apparently it must have made his "boys" healthier, too! So, if this little baby sticks around, that would be great. If not, I'm prepared to go through it again. I think if I really watch my sugar, I'll be fine, as my hormone levels will be kept in-check that way. Anyway, if this one sticks, I am due the first part of November.
Hopefully, this will give someone hope. I have endometriosis, PCOS, luteal phase defect, the list goes on. I have had one chemical pregnancy already. From what I have read, there is over 60% risk of miscarriage when hormone disorders like PCOS and luteal phase defect are present. How this relates to endometriosis...I feel the implantation cramps mostly on the left side, near where my intestines are attached to my pelvic wall w/ endo. Hopefully during the pregnancy the adhesions will shrink. If not, it sounds like it could be quite painful. Anyway, pregnancy is possible with more than even just endo.
Hi, Tan. Well, since I first started my period at 12 years old, I would always have late, late periods, sometimes 3 or 4 months without a period--and I don't even know from back then if I even ovulated or had a withdrawl bleed. I started charting my temps. about a year ago, and they revealed several ovulation and cycle problems, leading to testing for PCOS. I was put on diabetic medicine for insulin resistance, which allowed me to have on-time ovulation. I decided to quit the diabetic medication bc it was treating the symptom and not the problem and went on an insulin resistance diet. Charting my temps. showed that I ovulated on day 16--all on my own, just by eating a healthy diet and keeping my blood sugar low. It was on my own because I wasn't taking any medication to induce ovulation. Lowering my blood sugar regulated my hormones LH & FSH and led to on-time ovulation and my little pregnancy
Thanks ouchy. I don't know whether I ovulate of my own. my chart is biphasic, but temperature drops after first rise, then again rise after 2-5 days. In my last cycle(with clomid) I did ultra sound regularly to study follicles and two ruptured. In that cycles also chart was biphasic but with no rise-drop-rise pattern. So I am confused, whether I ovulate of my own. If I can confirm, then can TTC without clomid. My LH was also high in last march when it was tasted. So PCOS was suspected. Then I was put on metformin for two months. In those cycles also there was no rise-drop-rise pattern in my chart. But later endo found. Then my dr told me high LH caused by anovulation, which may be from endo also. But i didn't find any articles related to high LH and endo. Hi denna, how are you. no message for long time.
Hi, Tan. Nope. I've never found any articles related to endo and the LH being high. Only from hormonal disorders. I think you are on the right track in thinking possibly PCOS. I can look at your charts if you want to see if I can help you make sense of anything. Do you chart on paper or use an online service?
hi all...my laptop was 'dead'..meaning need to replace so i can only use my office for now..will get a new one very soon..
