    Unhappy so difficult to conceive

    I have been trying to conceive for past 3-4yrs. undergone 2 failed IUIs. been on lots of medications, scans & etc..
    It's been a very tough journey, eating medicines & injecting myself.
    Recently, I went to see a fertility specialist in JB, recmd by my sis in law. He diagnosed me having endometrosis & started me on Metformin. Apparently Metformin is an anti-diabetic medicine & also can encourage the eggs to grow bigger. At the same time, it can encourage the endometrosis to grow too. I have been on this Metformin treatment since Jan till now. My menses cramp have stopped completely. Eggs seem to be growing big each month. However, Metformin will cause diarrhea for no reason, easily hungry, weight gain & worse of all, bulging tummy which is terrible. Each day I see my tummy growing bigger & bigger not because of baby, but because of the medicine makes me feel worse & sad. How I wish it was a baby bump. I feel so terrible. I do have intercourse during my ovulation & yet I just don't get pregnant! Many a times, I do not have the mood to have intercourse but have no choice. (forced myself to do it...) Each month I get my menses, my heart bleeds too, get so agitated, ends up quarreling with hubby. Men will never understand what & how we feel about all this thingy. What else can I do...I am still taking Metformin, skipped my check-up this month because hubby refused to bring me. I don't know what to do next. As the clinic is in JB, it's difficult for me to go regularly too. Should I follow up here in SG??

    What is the name of the clinic or the doctor name? Is he reputable?

    As a couple desperate for child, we went all over the world in search of miracle. Finally our last fertility treatment was in Australia. With so many failures and disappointments we found out about DGII placenta. We didn’t think it could be so much simpler than the other treatment we had could give better result. Gone through the one course of placenta treatment as a couple, we were overjoyed when I conceived and was very thankful.
