Thanks, everyone, for the welcome, the enouragement, and the information!
Kaycie: Yes, the Metformin is for PCOS. I wonder if there is any link between Crohn's and PCOS, or Crohn's and Metformin? I started Metformin just before I had my IVF in 2003. Stopped mid-way through pregnancy, then started again in 2006. That's when the Crohn's trouble started, although it took until last month to get diagnosed properly. I've been off the Metformin since May 2008, but my endocrinologist wants me to go back on it because my testosterone levels are rising again. I'm not so sure it's a good idea.
I was so sorry to hear about the loss of one of your twin daughters. What a heartbreaking experience. I conceived quadruplets during my first IVF cycle (they transferred 3 embryos due to my age, and one split into identical twins.) Sadly, my identical twin daughters passed away before they were born, but the fraternal boys were born alive at 32 weeks and are now 4-1/2 years old and doing very well.
We are actually considering another pregnancy... but I have been dragging my feet with all of my health concerns, and now time is running out for me.
