I am so sorry to hijack this thread but I just wanted to as 6fornow a question
I thought you either had or didn't have PCOS but it sounds like you 'got' it after having 5 beautiful bubbas? It's just that we had DS naturally and without a drama and then didn't get my period back (regular pre pregnancy) after stopping BFing...we've looked into PCOS recently as while our FS can't say we have it ~ we only have one diagnostic symtom (no period) I certainly seem to have others...so I'm onto losing 10 kg (taking me back to pre pregnancy weight) at the moment in the hope it will bring on period and get us to the next baby in our lives...
Thanks and sorry again for taking over and good luck to your friend curiouschildcare, you sound like a friend that everyone needs...I truly hope this journey is not long for her...

I was diagnosed with PCOS when #5 was about 6 months old or maybe slightly older. I always assumed it was something you could end up with after having successfully conceived previously, ie secondary infertility, but then, there is a possibility I had it and just never knew. I am not sure why it took so long to conceive, but I had always had irregular periods from the time I got them, but never by much more than a week either side, so I might expect it on day 28 and get it on day 24 or day 31 etc but it got better as I got older. I wasnt actively ttc with my first few kids, it just happened!! It was 5 months for my 1st, 3 months for my 2nd, the first cycle for my 3rd and 4th and my next I fell pregnant when #4 was 11 months old, 3 months after she had stopped breastfeeding. Then, the first time I was actively charting and temping and ttc with #6, it all fell apart!! So I think in answer to your question, I believe it is possible to have normal ovaries and then have them become clogged with immature unreleased eggs, as you can have the polycystic ovaries without the syndrome and as I am not overweight, not pre diabetic/diabetic, not excessively hairy and not balding really, I have the slightest touch of some of these symptoms, but nothing to complain about, its just the mildly irregular periods and the misfiring ovaries!! My cousin has been told to lose abit of weight as they think she has a thyroid disease and it is causing miscarriages in conjunction with her blood clotting disorder.. Maybe you could get tested for thyroid issues too? And if no diabetes testing has been done, that might be useful too, as I have heard they give women Metformin for insulin resistance. Hope that helps!!

Oh and also, I recall a few ladies saying there is a medication they get prescribed to bring on their periods when its not arriving for whatever reason, but I cant recall the name..

Thanks for replying! Well we just got back from the FS and we start our clomid cycle tomorrow so fingers crossed with some weight loss we should get a positive sometime in the not too distant future. Thanks for the thought on thyroid problems ~ I had it checked along with all the other tests when we first realised that my period was not coming back...all clear so that isn't it either...but we are hopefully that the clomid will do it for us!!
