My name is Amanda. I am 29 and have been ttc for 2 years. I have PCOS. My DH and I have went through 5 IUI's in 4 cycles. Far too many pills and shots to count. March/April will mark our first attempt at IVF. I'm turning back into a basket case. I have turned here for support that nobody can give if they haven't been through it. I really look forward to chatting with others and hearing everyone else's story of their journey.
