I was diagnosed about three months ago when I went to the gyn for a preconception meeting. I was very sad/scared at first but I now know that it’s not super uncommon and is very treatable. I’m a bit scared about having to take medication to ttc, but my husband has sick insurance that even covers ivf  if we have to go that route. I’m a bad sad that the non-medical solutions seem to not be working (charting and opks are showing no signs of ovulation,) but better to know now than to ttc for a year with no results and find out later!

PCOS is not at all that scary.  Yes, it takes a bit more work to get to conception, but a lot of people do get there.  Pleanty of people concieve with PCOS without having to go all the way to IVF to get there.  Work with your doctor.  Diet and exercise are your two biggest friends with PCOS, and sometimes PCOS can be reversed with just diet and exercise.

I suspect that I’ve had it for awhile and met with a new obgyn a few months ago and she suspects it as well.  She put me on birth control for a few months so my right ovary can relax and I can get some pain free months (Only time I feel the pain is on the placebo).  Hopefully my dh and I can ttc again in Dec.  Good luck to you!

I have PCOS, and I’m 11 and a half weeks pregnant with our first baby 🙂 Diagnosed at 19, and I’m 25 now. I got ready to conceive by reducing my carbohydrate intake (50-80g a day) and increasing exercise- nothing crazy, just a 20-30 minute fast walk/jog 5-6 days a week, and about 5-10 minutes of light arm weights in the evening. We conceived on our second cycle trying- on CD93!! While it didn’t take many tries, it took a few months because my cycles were long.

I always appreciated hearing success stories, so hopefully mine is some comfort 🙂
