Hi nlk! I am 23 years old and was diagnosed with PCOS in 08. Dh and I are currently TTC baby #1. We have been trying for 13 months and are really hoping that 2012 is our year! Are you on any meds to help with your PCOS?

Hi!

not on any meds yet, because they insisted on putting me on the bcp for a while to see if it made any difference so now i have to wait a few months before i can be referred to a fertility specialist. i get referred in february though, kinda excited!

its taken me soooo long to be taken seriously by doctors, who insisted that i was ruining my life by not wanting to wait. but it seems like its getting worse, with longer and longer between AF!

are you taking meds? how have you found your journey so far? xx

they wanted me on it for about six months, but after 11 weeks of constant bleeding (no exaggeration!) i had enough, and told them that i was ready to start ttc. so now i have to wait until feb to see if my periods come back (which would be nothing short of a miracle) before i can be referred to a FS to start clomid.

how are you finding clomid? has it helped to kickstart your ovulation?

Hi, I'm 25, me and my hubby have been trying for #1 for a year so they have just started to look into why we aren't pregnant yet.

I had bloods taken 2 weeks ago and a scan last Monday. Tuesday the doctor rang and told me I have PCOS. I have my first face to face meeting with doctor since the diagnosis on Monday, I have been told I will probably be put on 2 different meds one for ovulation and one for insulin intolerance.

oh my gosh! 6 months of BCP!! while your TTC is ridiculous! and now waiting till feb! must be frustrating!!! hopefully the time fly s! Clomid for me hasnt worked as great, as you can see by my sig, i had to up my dose alot, this is the last month of clomid and then they are moving me onto something new, but i hope i dont need that something new!!!

Mrs B that sucks. it is truly awful, but at least now you can get the medical help you need to get your ! and remember there are loads of us around, so if you ever need to talk we're all here for you!

ourfate: it was more of that they disagreed with my decision to start ttc, because i was young, and they basically thought i was going to completely ruin my life, which is why they said the only thing i could do right now was to go on bcp. initially i was so upset, i didnt really say how i felt about them treating me in that way, but a few weeks back i went back to the doc and said that i wasnt happy, and wanted to start trying right away and refused to take them anymore! so i cant get referred until feb, its probably looking like i wont get to actually see a FS until about may/june...thats how long the doctor reckons it will take to get an actual appointment

what were your cycles like before you started with the clomid? i have this awful fear that it wont work for me


i really hope we get lots of people on this thread! i know theres a pcos club in lttc, but i dont really feel right posting in there because its only recent for me...and i think i am by farrrrrr the youngest person in that thread!

Thanks nlk I cant wait to start to get help and maybe I'll ovulate!

I always thought I would start to have children when I was 20, but Hubby (bf at the time) wasn't ready back then, then when he decided he was, I was over the moon and I thought we would have a baby before this Christmas when we started ttc last year. Now I am hopeful for next Christmas lol.

I don't like to intrude on threads that have been going for what looks like forever and when people are ltttc for like 5 years! Makes me feel like my 1 year is worthless?? Anyone ever feel like that? Or are you guys ltttc for ages too? how long is ltttc?! lol 101 questions

i always knew i wanted children young..its the only thing that i have always been absolutely sure of.

i know how you feel about intruding...i dont feel like i belong in there at all, because people in there are talking about trying for years. i know i dont belong in there because ive literally only just started trying, even though they have a thread specifically for pcos. i think its because im still young, and i would feel so awful trying to say im in the same position as they are when i havent been trying as long as they have. maybe in a couple of years i will feel different, and be able to join in more with their threads, but right now i dont feel like i should post in there, mostly because im definitely not a lttc'er, but also because i feel like im too young.

im not really sure how long is considered lttc...maybe more than 18 months? because after a year of trying unsuccessfully, i think youre meant to seek medical help. but thats just my opinion.
