Recently dx w/PCOS after getting labs/ultrasound bc we’ve been trying for 7 months (30, regular, active/healthy). Ordered Mira for hormone testing at home but not sure if it will help any. Anyone used it before and willing to give an honest review? I’m always a little skeptical of reviews on the seller’s site.

Hey all, I’m in the midst of IVF stims and last week a woman came to morning monitoring with her two small children under 3 yo. I figured this woman had a last minute emergency lapse in childcare and that’s why she brought the kids that time as a one off. This morning at monitoring, here she is again with the kids in the waiting room. I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt the first time, but this time I’m feeling like it really is inconsiderate. Am I being too sensitive?

Hi all. Hubs and I have been trying to get pregnant for a few years with no luck. Tried IUI, no success. I’m scared of IVF and the toll it takes on your body but we may be looking at that soon.
But I want to keep trying naturally for 6 more months.
I’m a relatively healthy-ish person but wondering what I can do diet-wise.
What healthy diets did you go on? What foods did you cut out/introduce? My naturopath told us both to reduce red meat and dairy.
I’m south Asian if that makes a difference.
