This is a fabulous (yet heart-wrenching) article. But maybe I consider it so because it hits so close to home for me. Having suffered OHSS (Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome) after every IUI round and my IVF round landing me in the hospital for a week, and on bed rest for another two, this would definitely be something I would have considered. It’s refreshing to see that medical professionals are looking for options that will specifically help PCOS patients.
I have not posted on my blog since October 5, 2012, wow how time flies. I miss my blog and the community but had troubles putting my energies into it for a number of reasons. Shortly after my last post my pregnancy started getting very complicated and I was focusing all of energies on keeping my babies healthy and growing (not to mention being in and out of the hospital). They ended up being born on December 28, 2012 at 31 weeks + 1 day. We spent 5 weeks in the NICU and the first year in and out of doctor’s appointments and Michael had two heart catheterization surgeries. On top of all this I took a large promotion at work and we bought a new home (our cozy condo quickly become tiny after we brought the twins home!)
I have recently been thinking a lot about getting back on track with things especially since my PCOS has flared back up since the boys were born and I have also recently had a number of people reaching out to me for help with PCOS and infertility related issues. I love helping people which is a large part of the reason I started this blog and Facebook page. So, as I said, I’m back! It’s time to break the silence and get down to the nitty gritty, help myself, and help others. Stay tuned!!!
