I just wanted to share something very interesting! I am 37, have pcos and a 2yr old daughter (concieved naturally), a m/c in april (concieved naturally). If left to nature I would have maybe have 4 periods a year and ovulate randomly. Since April I have been on 1500mg metformin, with no ovulation. In Sept I took prometrim (very light spotting period), 1500 mg metformin and100mg clomid, which my RE considered unsucessful. Although I did ovulate day 25, according to temps, cwm and opk. It was my first opk ever! No pregnancy. This month I decided to stay on metformin, drop all other meds (my RE wanted to go to injectables which I was not ready for) I have just been relying on my acupuncturist and herbs (this last week I went from pills to tea YUCK!). She brought on a nice healthy period and on day 16 (sat morning) I had a nice big temp drop and ewcm! No opk yet, but I am not waiting for that! I am assuming that I am ovulating. I am soooo excited that this is working for me! I am hoping for a bfp this month, if not this month maybe next at least now I am ovulating which is better than the meds were doing. I have a great feeling about all this and have had no side effects like the cyst from clomid or moodiness. It is great! I recomend it to anyone and everyone. I'll keep you posted.

way to go Jodi, is the acupuncurist related to your fertility clinic at all or someone entirely separate. My clinic believes in it also but i have yet to try it. They strongly suggest it for ivf patients.

completely seperate..As a matter of fact I gave up on my fertility clinic. Am going to a new one this week just in case. I am giving acupuncture until December and then reasses. But It is working better than drugs so far...I have also heard that it greatly increases the success of IVF.
