    Default New and ready to start a family

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Sarah and I'm 25 from Melbourne. My partner and I are looking at trying to have a baby at the end of July and I'm super excited!

    However I was diagnosed with PCOS about 2 years ago and almost feel like it's never going to happen.

    Hoping to hear stories of ladies who have had PCOS and what they did to fall pregnant. Particularly those who have regular periods

    I'm hoping to keep you updated with my journey ❤️

    Hi Sarah. Welcome to Bubhub.
    I havr Pcos and now have a healthy 2.5 year old. It took us 3 years trying but i didnt get a diagnoaes until almost a year so may hsve been better if i knew before hand.

    I was on Metformin. I also took some natural thinga such as vitex, red raspberry tea, eating low gi and trying to exercise more. I also loat 15 kgs and i think a combination of thibgs helped me.

    Good morning and good luck. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 15.
    I was told I had soooo many cysts on my ovaries that I should get a hysterectomy. (Not something you want to hear when your 15 years of age.
    I was also told I was infertile. I had irregular periods, periods wouldn't come at all etc. I was given the pill, but only took it for 3 months. I wasn't interested.

    Sooooo many years later I met a man, now my husband. Told him my issue, he accepted it, he said we will try, so we did. Took 9 months, naturally, and now we have 2 amazing, beautiful kids.

    Welcome to Bub Hub!

    I have pcos and was diagnosed almost 10 years ago at the age of 16. When dh and I got married we decided to start a family so went to a gyno to discuss our options. I was also then diagnosed with a deformed uterus so we were facing an even tougher road.

    After 25 months of fertility treatment we were finally successful on an injection cycle and now have a 14 month old ds.

    Having pcos made me at higher risk of having gd and unfortunately I was diagnosed at 18 weeks. However in good news, according to recent tests I am no longer classified as having pcos, so we will see how we go ttc number 2!

    I would recommend getting a referral to a specialist to discuss the best path for you.

    I wish you the best of luck with your ttc journey and am sending you lots of baby dust!
