    Hi Jess welcome to BB!

    You might like to check out our article on PCOS [url=]HERE[/url] and also a [url=]THIS[/url] Post might help you.

    I too suffer from PCOS, have had PCOS since I was diagnosed in my mid teens.

    Just wondering how you were diagnosed? Did you have insulin resistance test? Ultrasounds? Are you seeing a Gyno?

    PCOS is not the end, it does not mean that you won't be able to conceive it does make things more difficult but not impossible. I have a GF who had really bad PCOS didn't ever get her Period and recently gave birth to a little boy. I conceived Paris straight away after I went off the pill, but with #2 we have had difficulties, and I am now on clomid to get pg. Getting pg on clomid for us isn't a problem its getting the little babies to stick (I have had 2 m/c's Oct 04 & Feb 05). If you aren't seeing a gyno I would definitely recommend it. And I would get them to sit down with you and answer EVERY question you have thoroughly until you understand PCOS inside and out. If they try and tell you its not important until you are TTC tell them you want to know, and if they aren't supportive then find another gyno (I was treated that way before TTC).

    I am really sorry that you have been diagnosed with PCOS but please understand it does not necessarily mean that you won't be able to conceive!

    Feel free to ask any questions, and we are all here to support you!

    Jess, I'd just like to add that many women with PCOS conceive (and do it naturally, too). Don't take one doc's opinion too seriously, find yourself a good specialist.

    I have PCOS, unfortunately I found out as a result of TTC but without success. Well, after many cycles of clomid, then 2 rounds of IVF, I finally managed to fall pg on my own (with help from a drug called Metformin). If you are TTC I suggest you seriously consider asking to be put on Metformin, especially if your doc only thinks about clomid.

    Good luck!

    Hi Jess

    Like Sal I only found out I had PCOS when TTC with no luck.Please don't think its the end of the world as PCOS differs greatly from person to person.My condition is quite mild compared to some other people as I have no major cycts on my ovaries,I don't ovulate, my period was always very inconsistent though and thats what tipped me off and thats about all the symptoms I actually have, oh I do struggle to keep weight off my tummy.Trust me there are many options for you when you do start TTC.Like the others have said, find yourself a great gyno/fertility specialist as this makes things so much easier as they can explain things to you and help you work through them.

    I'm one of the lucky ones who fell pregnant on my second cycle of clomid 50mg.My sister also has PCOS and fell pregnant on her first cycle!Please don't give up, you can come to us for any questions no matter how stupid you think they are and we're here to support you.
