been speaking to a friend and her sister in law has it, after chatting i looked up the symptons and realised that i have most of them
* Excessive body hair, my hair grows dead fast (including leg hair)
*irregular or light periods, i do have light periods, they cn range from 29 days to 32 days, i have started spoting in my tww. i have a short LP ranging from 7 to 11 days. i do think i O as i did temp for the first few months of trying
* problems getting pregnant, me and my OH have been trying for 7 months now
*weight gain, i started putting on weight quite quickly when i was about 19, 20, thought this was due to being on contraception.
*acne, i also started developing acne when i was about 19, 20, after never having a problem in my teens, seems to get worse close to O
*hair loss, my hair does come out in clumps
sorry long message, but thought you ladies might be able to help me. i do have a telephone appointment with my doctor next week to ask about it all.
Hi Hun I have pcos and it doesn't nessasarily mean you won't be able to conceive! I've concieved 3 times without any medical treatment so don't give up hope. And if you are having problems then there are lots of things avaliable to help. Please try not to worry about it lots of women have pcos and go on to have healthy pregnancies. Good luck and lots of babydust xx
If they feel you need help ie regulate ur cycle or help with ovulating then ofcourse they will help you. If u don't think ur getting the help you need then maybe get a second opinion or change docs. I'm currently trying for baby#3 I'm expecting it to take awhile but u should never give up hope.pcos doesn't always mean infertility I'm proof of that and alot of ladies on here have it and have got pregnant. Try to stay positive x
Good luck Loz10! I would advise you to push for tests! I went to the Drs and she wouldnt do anything! I switched Drs back to my old one after a few more months of her doing absolutely nothing and got my blood test taken straight away and then I got sent for an ultrasound and internal scan! My Dr said that I probz do have PCOS because of what my tests showed but at the same time you can have some symptoms but not necessarily all of them! Plus they usually are not concerned until you have been TTC for so long in case you fall naturally on your own which is hard and frustrating as Im currently waiting! My hubbys going to get Sperm Analysis done though in case theres problems on both sides to get referred any sooner? If not its a waiting game! But remember theres a lot of people on here that have the same and we are all here to support each other so never feel alone! Its so hard because its all I think and worry about and im so frustrated that the other Dr would have left me so much longer!
Kay Mum of 2 im so happy that you managed to conceive with PCOS naturally do you have any tips or advice at all please? Thank you!
Hi only tips I have is lots of bding! And I took pregnacare religously. Ate healthily and tried not too stress about it because stress is one of the main factors in ladies not conceiving. Try to relax and let nature take it's course. Good luck and baby dust to all xx
I don't have PCOS but I had all of the symptoms and I still do have some of them (Acne/ hair loss, etc.). These can also be caused by stopping birth control or giving birth. It is because of a drastic hormone change. I was tested for everything in the book and everything came out fine but I'm still dealing with the acne and the hair loss and I had to lose a bunch of weight, which I did. Now I'm pregnant and hoping that the pregnancy hormones will stop the hair loss and the acne. It's so stressful! I feel like I'm going bald even though I have been assured I will not. It's terrifying when clumps fall out! Also acne sucks because I look like I'm 12 or 13! So unattractive! Come on pregnancy hormones!
Good luck to you and I hope you do not have PCOS and get your bfp really soon!
hugs, it can be really scary thinking you have PCOS but don't worry yourself unnecessarily. It doesn't mean that you won't be able to have children or that it will be any harder than a normal ovary women necessarily. You need to see your doctor and ask for some blood tests and an ultrasound on your ovaries. xx
