My Story

Thanks for reading my blog.  It really means a lot to know that there are people out there going through a similar journey.  I appreciate any and all support.  Here's a brief synopsis of my journey so far:

  • April 17, 2010 - Went off birth control
  • July  9, 2010 - AF
  • September 2010 - Had only 1 period since April, so I went to my primary care physician.  
    • Had a ton of blood work done.  
    • Was put on Vitamin D pills
    • Was told to wait
    • AF the next day... figures!
  • November 2010 - Still no period.  Asked to be referred to an Ob/Gyn.
    •  Ultrasound
    • Diagnosed with PCOS
    • Prescribed Metformin 1500mg/daily
  • January 25, 2011 - AF
  • January 31, 2011 - Ob/Gyn said he was certain that I was responding to the metformin so I should wait and I'd probably ovulate normally in Feb.
  • March 2, 2011 - Referred to Reproductive Endocrinologist (I knew I hadn't ovulated and I was looking for answers)
    • Diagnosed with Hypothalamic Amenorrhea
  • March 3, 2011 - Started Clomid 50mg/ 5 days
  • March 11, 2011 - Follicle 11mm
  • March 14, 2011 - Follicle 17mm x 21mm!
    • HCG injection
    •  Prometrium capsules
  •  Battling with Bulimia since middle school. 
  • I've been in therapy for over 10 years. 
  • I have definitely made great strides in controlling my disordered eating, but things are pretty inconsistent.  Sometimes I feel like I'm in a good place and then the next day it's like I haven't learned anything.  
  • It's a work in progress...
