    Default New Diagnosis - PCOS

    Hi All,
    My DH and I have been TTC baby #1 since May 2012. I have just recently had an external and internal ultrasound and they think I have PCOS. I have just had blood tests this morning and get my results back on 2/4 at 4.45pm. I was just wondering if ladies out there that have PCOS as well could shed some light. I do get AF - since May I have CD 32, 29, 49, 32, 36, 46, 35, 36

    I am so scared and so upset that I have been "diagnosed" with PCOS. I feel like I am letting DH down not being able to give him a family just yet. I am slightly overweight so I am going to start a low GI diet. Until I can get my blood test results back and see a gyno I am not sure what I can do other than wait.

    I was just wondering if you lovely ladies could tell me how you got through it and share some of your success stories. Just don't know how to cope with it all. DH and my family that know are a huge support and told my boss at work so that way I can go to appointments when needed.

    Thanks ladies :-)

    Don't stress smash I have PCOS and it's not the end of the world if you do have it they will put you on a stricked diet of zero sugar so start reading labels and cut all sugar from your diet. My FS also got me to cut out potatoes, pasta and rice as your body turns it to sugar. Sugar causes cysts all over your ovaries but good diet and losing a small amount of weight you should be right. Keep positive you will have a baby.

    Take care Twisty

    Being diagnosed with PCOS is definitely not the end of the world. I was diagnosed in 2009. I started fertility treatment in Mid 2010 and did 3 cycles of clomid which were not successful. In 2011 I did a cycle of FSH injections and fell pregnant first cycle and had a little boy Jan 2012. We are now TTC again and have just started an FSH cycle today. I know of a few ladies who have been able to fall pregnant without any fertility treatment or who had treatment for their first pregnancy and conceived naturally for their second.

    Hi Ladies,
    I know it's not the end of the world but feels like it at the moment. I guess there is nothing we can do until we see the DR and then go see someone else to see where to start. I just don't know what to do with myself as really want a baby and really wanted to give hubby one and thought it would be easier than this. How do you tell people? I just feel like I am disappointing and letting people down :-(

    The biggest bit of advice I can give you is to cut out all sugar from your diet and find an exercise you enjoy that you can stick to.

    Oh and try and stay positive. I know it is hard but it may or may not be along road, but it will be so much better if you can stay positive and remember why you are doing it.

    Good Luck.

    As far as telling people, that is up to you, but you will find that people will be a lot more understanding than you expect and may have had their own issues. So don't feel bad if you need to confide in someone or you feel like you don't want people to know. Both are totally normal. Just do what you feel comfortable doing.

    Reading your story feels like I wrote it. I went through the same feelings of letting my husband (back then my fiancé) down. I even went to the extreme of giving him a free out of the wedding (I'm a bit of a drama queen). Thankfully he told me I was crazy lol.

    I have been put on Metformin which has helped a little to regulate my cycles, I even had lapband and have so far lost 20kg.

    4 months ago I was given the all clear to TTC from my lapband specialist, but I still wasn't ovulating. My FS put me on clomid which didn't work but then on letrozole. My progesterone levels went from 1.4 to 22 on the lowest dosage in the first month I had it, so finally I ovulated. This month FS doubled my dosage and my level was 52. Now I'm waiting to have test to see if I am pregnant.

    I used to be so negative until I saw my levels increase and result in ovulation. I am now so much more positive that I will have the family I always dreamed of.

    Good luck smash and I have fingers crossed for both of us
