I have PCOS, so I apparently i’m gonna have trouble getting pregnant. Naturally, I get about 3 periods a year. Right now i’m not trying to have a baby so I don’t know how difficult it will be. But it makes me nervous just wondering.

So sorry to here about your struggles. I’ve heard of so many couples that have overcome fertility issues. My aunt thought she’d never had kids, and now she has a boy and twin girls! So I think things could work out really well for you. But the fertility drugs and such doesn’t sound very fun right now. Good Luck!

Hey girls!  sweetkate, i am dealing with the same issues!  i am in the middle of a 10day cycle of progesterone to induce a period and it is awful!  i am a raging emotional overly happy depressed fool the last few days.  it’s terrible, but hopefully it will work!  how long ago was your progesterone treatment?  You are welcome to pm me anytime, it’s always nice to have someone who understands your struggles.  we are ttc in march after the wedding, so we are trying to prepare my body for pregnancy now since we feel ready to be parents.

Me!  I was just diagnosed with PCOS and am seeing the reproduction specialist on Aug 17th.  Luckily I do have “periods” (possibly just breakthrough bleeding if I am not actually ovulating). 

As for keeping it exciting…toys!  🙂  Take a trip to the nearest “dirty store!”

Oooo no fun. Been there done that with the crazy hormonal medication.

Nothing but good luck and baby dust! (not sure who coined the phrase ‘baby dust’ but i like)

I’m sorry you’re going through this, Sweetkate. That can’t be fun. I think it is a lot more common than people realize, though. I know a lot of people who struggled with infertility, including one friend who spent 5 years trying, had 4 failed IVF’s, and then had some surgery on her thyroid (for unrelated reasons) and she got pregnant pretty much right away.

So wait- How do you know if you need progesterone to get a period ? I went off the pill in mid-June and have yet to get my period despite having lots of PMS symptoms. Is that normal or is that the kind of thing that caused your doctors to put you on progesterone?

monalisa, i quit taking bc in february, and haven’t had a period since.  i was put on birth control to regulate my cycle, but as soon as i went off, i quit having periods again.  i went to the doctor because we want babies soon so anything i can do to prepare i want to do now.  i’ve read all sorts of conflicting statements, some say 3 months, some say 6, some even a year before a period returns, but if you are worried, make an appointment.  better to deal with it now then after you’ve been ttc for a year or two… or five.  🙂

I am sorry you are having fertility issues…I think quite a few of us are dealing with these issues as well. I haven’t had my period for over a year and my doctors are trying to figure it out now, before we try to conceive. I have taken several medications of progesterone and neither has worked. I am worried, because I used to be so regular in my teens and early 20’s. Anyways, I am crossing my fingers for you.
