I Want to Be Pregnant
I want to be pregnant. Age: 27 years
First I want to speak about before I got married, my Menstrual cycle was irregular since I was 15 years old, I have also a continuous problem with acne (in 2006 a doctor told me that my acne is because of a problem with hormones), I have unwanted hair(too much hair) in legs, breast, stomach. I had also sometimes a problem of hair fall.
I have been married since October, 2008 and I did not get pregnant yet. In the first year of my marriage I did not care about that (having children) but after more than 1 and a half year I went the doctor to find what the problem is.
I did analysis to check my hormones before getting married, and after 6 months of marriage and everything was normal. I had (still have) burning when urinating. I took treatment (ciprodar, Ciprofloxacin tablets) and when I finish the course, the burning when urinating comes back, so after 2 years of marriage I still take these tablets.
In June 2010 (after 1 year and a half of marriage) I started infertility treatment; I began to have (Clomid, 3 tablets everyday starting from the 2nd day to 6th day of my menstrual cycle) for activating the ovary. I have been injected with (Pergonal, injection) in the 2nd and 4th day of the menstrual cycle. In the 13th day of my cycle I took (h.c.g. Pregnyl injection) to help with ovulation, in the first month I felt the ovulation symptoms around the 15th day of my cycle.
I tried this treatment 3 months, but in the 2nd and 3rd month I didn’t feel any
ovulation symptoms. The follicles were very good in size (22mm, 1 or 2 follicles every month)
I changed the doctor and she prescribed me (Clomid, 4 tablets a day starting) and she asked me to do an ovulation test (LH test) in the middle of the cycle (day 12 to 15), when it is positive, I will be injected with (h.c.g. Pregnyl). The (LH test) was never positive, so I did blood test also to see the (LH), and it was lower than its normal range. The follicles were also good in size (around 22mm)
I took also (Gonal-F. injection) for (day 7,8,9 of the cycle)
After another 3 months (till December, 2010) of this treatment, the doctor did not know what the reason of un-ovulation is.
Since 3 months I have a hair fall problem and she supposed that I have (multi cysts ovarian syndrome).
I did checking of my hormones and I found that the (testosterone) is high, 200, while it supposed to be 80. I changed my doctor again.
The last doctor did (ultra-sound) and she told me that I don’t have (multi cysts ovarian syndrome), and told me that I have changes in hormones because of the medications I took, they were too much, and the ovaries are over-activated. She prescribed me (tablets, Diane, 35) to reduce the (testosterone) for this month and (yasmin, tablets) for the next month (February), as you know these tablets are for Contraception.
So I stopped activating the ovaries and instead I am deactivating them, she recommends that in March I will begin with activating medicines again.
I don’t know what to do now and I hope you will help me to be pregnant.
