Q: PCOS and losing hope.... :'(

I have PCOS. I had a stillborn baby girl at 28 weeks in 2004 and DH and I have been TTC ever since then.. I feel like there is no hope. Have any of you had PCOS and had a baby? I have never been on anything for the pcos because my Dr. must be an idiot, so I changed Dr's and I have my 1st appt. with the new one on Tuesday. Can anyone give me a glimmer of hope? I'm 26.. I just need some hope because I feel so much despair.

I was told I would never have children due to my PCOS when I was only 15 years old. All the information and treatments have changed since then, and what I've learned from all of it is NEVER LOSE HOPE!

It does, however, like you may never get help from your current doctor. 8 years is far, far too long to be denying medical assistance in conceiving. There are so many options, I'm thinking immediately of Metformin, Vitex, and Clomid, that are commonly prescribed a year after having no luck, IF that long!

I wish you all the luck in the world. We've just started trying for our first, and I'm already frustrated with my doctor and my body. I can't imagine how you feel.

Thanks Ladies! :) The new Dr. I went to didn't take my insurance, even though I told them what kind I had when I made the appt. UGH! Anyway, I called my old Dr. yesterday and DEMANDED to have an appointment because I'm just so frustrated, after having an attitude with me, they agreed to give me an appointment. I do NOT like this place, but they seem to be the only ones around that take my insurance. I also have made an appointment with an endocrinologist. I really hope he can help me out. Some days I feel like I am losing it. Other days I feel okay.. It's up and down and up and down. Baby dust to yall!

I am 26 as well with PCOS and have a 3 year old son. I get a cycle every 48-65 days naturally. I started taking VITEX chasteberry because it naturally helps with your levels and will help you Ovulate naturally. However if you get put on clomid do not take vitex they cancel eachother out. I am ttc now and my soon to be hubby just had a VR done so we are doing provera and clomid. Baby dust to you!

I'm also 26 with PCOS and currently on my 3rd cycle of Clomid. I know plenty of women with children who suffered from PCOS. There are plenty of options which your new doctor should give you! Good luck :)

I agree there is no reason why you cannot conceive! You already which ended sadly :( I feel for you on that one! But I am quite certain your new doctor will be much better for you!!! There are lots of women who conceive with pcos! It is a very managable disorder like the other lady stated. Try to eat healthier and maybe exercise a little :) I am in the same boat as you! Its not certain yet but my doc thinks that's what I have as well. I am waiting on bloodwork for confirmation. I don't think you need a glimmer of hope you have the whole sun shining down on you :) Don't get discouraged you'll be fine and I do think that you will have a baby of your own really soon!! Good luck with your new doctor and if you don't like this or if they seem not very helpful then find another!

Hey, I have PCOS and have a 5yr old little boy. I have also been pregnant twice before but miscarried. What I have found is that when I get my weight down to a healthy weight I have regular periods and catch quite easily. I dont take any medication for my PCOS I just manage it myself, I also have diabetes due to my PCOS as all my weight is round my tummy, im pretty slim everywhere else, although not ideal I use this to motivate me to keep my weight down and excersise as often as possible. I also gave up smoking which and caught straight away with my 5yr old whereas before I was a heavy smoker which I think contributed to my miscarriages. I am 35 now and just about to try for a baby with my new partner, terrifies me because of my age & PCOS but just keeping as healthy as possible. How is your weight & lifestyle? From my experience this is the main factor with PCOS, hope this gives you some hope xxxx

While having PCOS can make it more difficult to get pregnant, it does not mean you can't ever get pregnant. i am really glad you are seeing a new dr--hopefully you guys will come up with a plan of action that will have you getting your BFP soon!

I was told I have PCOS and wouldn't be able to have children without medical help. I fell pregnant with my DD unexpectedly while on holiday. Just about all of my friends have conceived while relaxing on holiday LOL. I'd highly recommend one.
This time round we're having a bit more trouble and are seeking medical help. I see my specialist on Tuesday too funnily enough! I'm hoping that with a little help from medical intervention then we can succeed.
Best of luck to you,

I have 3 sisters, All of them were told that they could not have kids due to PCOS, and one was told something else. Do not lose hope, because all 3 of my sister all have beautiful babies who will be 3 years old this year.. I think that you maybe trying too hard or thinking about it too hard. As I told my sister who lost all hope and wanted nothing more than a baby, "If you stop trying, then it will most likely happen when you least expect it."

There is still hope and a chance that you will have a baby. My sisters were told my many doctors that they could NEVER have kids, well we got to laugh at the doctors and prove them wrong.

Good Luck.
