WOW finally... you girls sound so much like me! I was diagnosed last week with PCOS but I really dont have many of the symptoms. He did a sonogram and said I have not been ovulating... then some blood work that confirmed my levels are out of wack.

But I am not overweight, I do not have acne and really dont have excess hair growth either. Do you think maybe Ive been misdiagnosed???

The doctor didnt seem concerned with my weight at all. I have teeny bones (size 5 shoe and the smallest wrists) and am 5'1 and weigh 97lbs. Believe it or not thats up from 94.5 a few months ago. I went off the pill in June and my weight literally fell off me from 102 to 94.5. I guess because of my bone structure the gyn wasnt concerned about that though. Maybe he should be????

Like you guys my FI is in the medical profession too. Hes PGY3 in ortho surgery. Still a long ways to go so I feel your pain about the no money thing. I did 5 days Provera at 10mg and just got my period but only for 1 day... which seemed really weird for me. My gyn has me starting Chlomid saturday (day 5) and taking 50mg for 5 days to see if I ovulate. If nothing happens my FI is coming with me back to the gyn on day 30 (march 1) to decide what our course of action will be for the future. We may decide to go straight to the RE.

Im glad to see people are in a similar boat to me :-) ANd i am wishing us all goodluck.
I am SUCH a dork.

I jumped the gun--my estrogen and progesterone levels are NORMAL for day three of your period, my RE told me after I wrote all of the above. I had the report faxed to me before my RE appt so when I read "<32" indicating in the range of post-menopausal, I didn't realize that they dropped that low right after you get your period. LOL! Any, I still have HA he said, the disease of athletes, models and stress-cases (starting to think I may be part of the latter group, and it's not helping that I'm not pregnant. Plus I think my boss thinks all these "Dr. appointments" are really interviews for another job, but he is paranoid. Makes me hate him and my job more.).

Next steps: see if I ovulate in the next two weeks on my own (I doubt it--a quick look at my ovaries Thursday morning showed they were quiet. Boo). Do the provera to get a period and set my egg timer back. Then take Clomid. Aymie, what are the problems w/ Clomid?

My hubby will do endocrine surgery next year, which I am happy about because he tells me there aren't any unplanned surgeries. So far it sounds like he'll be able to take more vacation than I will next year, unless of course I get preggers and quit my job. I think I have the opposite problem as you do, Aymie. Dear hubby's in the camp of "under diagnose" when it comes to treating me. The other night I got terribly sick--nausea, stomach pains, and a strange itchy rash. After what seemed an eternity begging him to do something, he finally roused himself and told me to lie on the floor. I obeyed, thrilled that I would finally get some help from him. He starts pushing and prodding my belly and then finally he says, "You're fine. Go back to bed." Excuse me, but I don't think I am fine. Just because he didn't find my appendix to be the size of an obese gerbil, doesn't mean I'm not sick! You see, as a surgeon, unless he can find something to cut or cauterize, I'm not sick LOL! So funny. I know some doctors are the exact opposite with their families, obsessively worrying about every little thing. I don't know which is better to have, but I'm certainly happy that I have my own RE!

Have a great Sat, Ladies!
