I just found out about 2 months ago that I have PCOS – I have been pretty much hiding in my apartment since I found out because it’s so hard to see the massive swarms of people that are expecting or have newborns right now and I always just want to go home and cry afterwards.(most of them being in my family)
My fiance does want to wait to have children and I feel like between that and the PCOS I will never have children but I’ve been making an attempt to get healthier regardless. :/ Even though I heard weight loss is supposed to be more difficult with PCOS?
I just was wondering if anyone else is going through this right now

*Hugs!* You’ll find that there are quite a few bees that are dealing with the same thing! I was diagnosed almost 6 years ago and it can still be hard to think about, I know I was really sad about it at the beginning too.
The good news is that it doesn’t necessarily mean infertility. I’m sure that your doctor will be able to give you more information about it. When I was first diagnosed I was only getting my period naturally about 3 to 4 times a year. My doctor was able to put me on supplements to regulate my period. About 2 years ago I started running and lost almost 50 pounds and my period then regulated itself. For the past year and a half I’ve had normal 31-33 day periods naturally 🙂 It can be harder to lose weight with PCOS but your doctor will be able to help with that too. The best advice I can give you is to find a doctor that you really trust and can be really open with. I did a lot of research so that I could ask my doctor really informed questions and I also started charting so I had an idea about what my cycles were doing. After all of that my husband and I were able to surprisingly get pregnant our first month TTC. Unfortunately that ended in a miscarriage but it gave us hope that I can get pregnant!
It can be a really hard thing to deal with but don’t lose all hope. If you ever need to talk there are lots of really nice ladies on here who have dealt with this issue. Feel free to PM me if you ever want to 🙂

yes, I have pcos. I was diagnosed 1 year ago. I started gaining weight rapidly. 50lbs in 1 month! From a size 3 to a size 14 now. 🙁 very depressing. I’ve put myself on a great diet and excersize 5 days a week but nope, I can’t even loose a freaking pound. :
my Dr first put me on metformin 500mg 2xa day but it gave me EVERY side affect . It was horrible! So he told me to stop taking it. I’ve had a hsg °hystosopenogram° where they put dye in your fallopian tubes to see I’d there’s an blockages and tears, which mine were good… My Dr told me the next step was Clomid. We haven’t started that yet, but waiting till the wedding is over.
