PCOS But Ovulating
I having been TTC for a year and am 31 years old. I was diagnosed with PCOS in June '09 after my cycle became lengthy. It lasted 3 months after discontinuing 14 years of BCPs.
As far as my only PCOS symptoms - my LH/FSH level was 2:1 (10.6/5.4), I do have the follicle cysts on my ovaries, and I am 20 lbs overweight, primarily in my mid section. I have been seen by an RE and have confirmed that my tubes are clear and my husband's sperm analysis was normal.
I have been on Metformin since July. Additionally I just finished three rounds of Clomid, despite the fact that I was already ovulating. I am not interested in additional Clomid rounds or injectable options.
My cycles generally range from 31-38 days and I ovulate between days 19-24, with a luteal phase of 12-14 days. My ovulation has been confirmed over the last four months with 7 DPO progesterone levels of 13.3-20.3. My FP temps are low with an average of 96.8 and are very erratic. I do see a biphastic shift after ovulation with an average LP temp of 97.7. Sometimes a possible implantation dip is present 7-10 DPO.
For the last two weeks I have just started seeing an acupuncturist in Houston. But I am afraid the language barrier is significant and although I feel the treatments are helping, I don't understand the treatments (the theory behind the needle placements and heat lamp) and no Eastern diagnosis has been mentioned - deficiencies, weakness, dampness, etc.
I go for acupuncture every 5 days and have personalized herbs prescribed. My FP temps have increased to 97.18-97.45 and I am on CD 16 and feel as though I am ovulating soon. Please help explain the treatments or recommend a book so that I can better understand the process and the desire for terminology and explanation.
