So...I have PCOS...


I just got diagnosed today.

I have mixed feelings.

They put me on a medication.

I feel a little nervous because...am I going to be able to get pregnant or is this when I just give up?

hey! I have PCOS and was put on Metformin and Clomid. I ovulated for the first time last month. Tons of women concieve with pcos...they just usually need a little assitance (herbs or medication). Don't lose hope! I'm here to talk if you need me

I might have PCOS myself and started metformin Dec 24th for insulin resistance, I had extremely irregular cycles, only had 3 periods last year, April, August and November, took metformin for two weeks and bam af showed up so it appears to be helping some how! I started bbt this month too to see if Im ovulating if not I will be starting on clomid at some point, so dont get discouraged my dear there are lots of options out there!!! Ive heard many success stories of women getting pregnant just from taking metformin, maybe you and I will join those stories

Thank you everyone! I feel so much better knowing that I am not alone. I didn't even know PCOS existed until I started doing research after the doctor told me what the ultrasound had shown.

I have been trying to read as much as possible to make sure I know what I can do to help my body. Luckily I started going to the gym with a friend and they say that excerise and weight loss can help. So I figure I am going in the right direction.
