maybe that nurse shouldn’t have raised an eyebrow when you told her the internet told you… eh? 

 

seriously though.. I’m sorry 🙁 i think you got lots of great info in the last thread though and i’m sure that now that you have an answer you’ll be able to work around it to conceive.

I’m sorry but there is stuff they can do to help you get pregnant.  Clomid will probably be prescribed.

Sending you (((Hugs)))  At least now you know what you are dealing with, and you and your doctor will be able to figure out how to proceed.

At least you now know what it is and won’t go through guessing games for treatment!

I’m sorry to hear that. Like the other bees said, now that the doctor knows your specific issues, he/she will know how to proceed with treatment. Many, many women with PCOS have healthy children. Hang in there, we’re here for you. 🙂

It’s a common thing, so the doctors know all about the options and such. They might give you Metformin – a friend at church with PCOS got prego within 1 month of taking Metformin. I have PCOS too. I know at least 2 others who do too. Very common, nothing to be afraid of. But, knowing is important because it does require you to treat it…

@heathaah:so sorry to hear this 🙁  But good for you for pushing your doctor to get you tested – patients really need to be their own advocates!  And now at lthe very least you can start doing things now to help you conceive earlier rather than spending a bunch more time trying with no luck.

Don’t worry there are lots of options when on PCOS (I have it too)

At least you now know and you can start treatment (likely metformin) and hopefully you will get preggers soon 🙂

Sorry to hear that!  Good luck addressing it from here on.  FYI, my best friend has it, too, and needed some help conceiving but has a beautiful 9-month-old now.

I have PCOS too, so I know what you are going through.  But at least now you know what is going on with your body.  

But there are plenty of women out there with PCOS who do conceive naturally. Go on Amazon and look up diet books and PCOS, read them and discuss with your doctor or have her refer you to a nutritionist.  Changing your diet may also help your chances of naturally conceiving. 

The next time you talk to your doctor see if they have someone there that specializes in fertility issues (if your doctor doesn’t already).  If not, ask for a referral.  The doctor I go to is awesome.  Luckily she was already in the practice and when I told her my symptoms she knew exactly what it was and ordered the tests to confirm.

PCOS sucks but it definitely doesn’t mean you can’t have kids.  I have PCOS also; there were many times I would only get my period every 6 months or so and I was so nervous that when the time came, I wouldn’t be able to get pregnant.  About 7 years ago, I changed my diet (cut out a lot of carbs and stopped eating so much junk food) and started running, eventually focusing on marathons.  Not only did I lose about 40 pounds (and my skin cleared up!) but hen I went off the pill 2 years ago just to see what my cycle would be like, I was so happy to find out that I was getting my period every month.  My husband and I tried for 5 months and now, I’m holding my beautiful 6-week-old daughter.

You may already have a great diet and keep in shape, so maybe none of this applies to you!  Smile  For me though, diet and exercise really made all the difference and I’ve been able to keep the PCOS under control.
