    Hi ladies.

    I have today been diagnosed with polycystic ovaries after 3 1/2 years of trying to conceive baby no 2. I don't see my specialist until 20th December so really would appreciate any advice on your experience or thoughts you have on this before I see him. I'm kind of hoping he will give me clomid and this will work miracles!!

    Although this isn't the best outcome for me I am just so grateful my tubes aren't blocked and I may be able to conceive without IVF. Its been so uppsetting each month to not be pregnant and finally I have a reason and can hopefully make progress now.

    Thanks in advance and lots of luck to you all too

    Hello Tracey, the best advice that I can give you is to start eating the low GI way now as this will normalize your hormone levels, making it easier to conceive. I have PCOS but we also struggle due to hubby's poor swimmers. Good luck x

    I have been trying to LTTC #2 for almost four years and i went to every doctor i could imagine. I even went four months without a period they suspected that I has PCOS. then I went to my OBGYN and she said I had no signs of PCOS so i am at a complete stand still on why i cant concieve. it should be easy right seeing as how we have one child already! I am so lost... It will work out for you!! Best of luck and baby dust.... :)

    Welcome to the forums! I too was diagnosed with PCOS this year after over a year of ttc. PCOS stopped my periods completely though, so I was pretty much at a standstill until June 2011.

    For me, finding out about the pcos was scary, but also very comforting. At last I knew what was going wrong with my body and had an idea of what I could do to try and correct it. I've been working really hard on the low GI diet and it's been working really well - I've lost over 40 pounds so far since June.

    Did they put you on metformin or anything to help with the pcos? *hugs* Stay strong, it might seem not so good, but you get a chance to learn a ton about your body AND have a goal to work towards.

    Thanks for your replies. They haven't put me on anything yet although I am seeing the specialist on 20th December who I'm hoping will give me Clomid. I have started looking into the low GI diet and generally being more healthy (I'm a normal size 12 and 5 foot 6 and bmi of 24 anyway so not overweight). Hopefully if I eat a little less in the way of carbs and exercise a little more it will have a great effect on me.

    Thanks again and good luck to you all too xx
