This ends my case of thinking thinking some doctors are just quacks. I tell you if I didn't need to see an ob to get the drugs I wouldn't deal with doctors at all!!! Just makes me want a home birth more.

Please ladies don't get offended about what i'm about to say because i'm getting the same short stick.. Babymaker, you and i are young ( I'm 21 too) and newly married thus the ob's think they can pull the sheet over our eyes and make us wait while they hold out on the real treatment. And Luvmykids, I bet your ob is thinking she already has two children she doesn't "need" anymore.

I'm sick of being labeled for what I am that has nothing to do with bringing a child into this world. Yes i'm young, that means I have more energy to chase after my bundle of joy, Yes i'm newly married but did you ask how long i've been with my man in a commited relationship. Did you ask what kind of employment me and my spouse have no??? oh how funny. Did you ask if while i've been trying have i been stock piling everything i will need for my future bundle.. No that's right you didn't.... What I love is what they are doing is sooooo illegal they cannot discriminate care based on disability, gender, orientation, ethnics, or religion and that is soooo what they are doing!!!!!!!!! I wish I was sue happy and i'd go after my ob,

And I know i'm the biggest culprite of this but i forget that i employ my doctor so i have a choice.
I totally agree. I basically raised my siblings, I am raising my nephew, I was a nanny for my best friend from the moment both of her kids were born. I KNOW how hard being a parent is. I KNOW it is expensive. I KNOW it is going to be emotionally draining and frustrating. It's not like I am some stupid kid who wants a baby to keep my man. My husband and I are VERY happy. We rarely argue, we agree on parenting styles, he is my BEST friend, and he is amazing with children. I have a five year plan, I have a ten year plan, hell, I even have a twenty year plan. Doctor's never bother to ask about that. They never bother to look past age and realize that not all 30 year olds are ready to have children either. Maybe they should care that we pay our own bills and have our own house. Maybe it should matter that I am in school to gain a great career and he works his ass off to provide for us during the time I need to be in school. But no. All they care about is that I have only been able to legally drink for 8 months like that has ANYTHING to do with the AMAZING mother that I WILL be whether she likes it or not. I am SO done having other people tell me how to live my life. My children WILL be number 1 for the rest of my life and I cannot wait for that. UGH.

Sorry for the rant. I am an emotional mess and this stupid metformin is making me so damn sick.

I love Cyst sisters. What about just Cysters?

I am so glad that you ladies commented. It is SO nice to know that I am not alone because sometimes it feels that way.

My aunt and I are starting a weight loss challenge and I am going to try to go Gluten free because someone told me that will help the symptoms of PCOS so hopefully that will help. I have decided to try some natural things to help me because I really would rather not take the birth control.

Hey I went gluten free for my pcos. It was very hard and kinda expensive. If you like cooking its a good thing! My doc told me because I was trying to become pregnant that going gluten free isint the best option. I would gradually lean off gluten and do it that way. Completely cutting out gluten all together at once can give some nasty side effects. Upset stomach. Headaches. Extremly sleepy. But. even cutting out a little gluten I saw a vast improvement! It's a challenge but worth it! I am still cutting out a lot of gluten. I feel better than ever. Except for the clomid side effects!

I want to go back to gluten free, maybe. Or if not "free" then limit the gluten I do eat- like bread, etc.


I like Cysters. Idk if I have cysts, but that's okay.

Update-

Just found out today we can't get the insurance Dh is being offered at work- it's too much $$, nearly 1/3 of his whole paycheck to get it.

Soooo it's off to agnus castus to try and regulate me, and if that doesn't work- planned parenthood, as they have a sliding scale.

I'm sorry I don't have any success stories, I was just diagnosed too. You can join our group in the groups and discussions called Cysters.
