Hey! I was wondering if anyone has PCOS or is familiar with it. I was diagnosed with it in january after having many painful issues with my uterus  lady parts for about 4 months. I had to leave my old job and move back home on bedrest for a couple of months. I am so new to this and i know BHM keeps it real!

Was anyone able to have kids? That is my main concern.  I know this is a sensitive subject so feel free to PM me. I am just going for my 3 month follow up after being on BC to see if the issue has been resolved. If not I may have to get my ovaries removed. I am only 20 so I am trying to do everything BUT that. Cry

I have about 20 cysts on each ovary. *sigh*

im a little familiar with it. thought i might have it but its supposed to start a lot younger than what i am. 
so my symptoms are probably more increased estrogen related but not PCOS per se.

sorry i have no say about fertility, no interest

I've heard plenty of stories of women having children, but it was always one of those cases where they didn't know until later.

PR, the health section had a lot of threads on it. Look for soulcysters.com (or a forum like that) where women talk about conception. Methformin seems to help a lot, milk thistle or something else. I know we've had at least 5 threads in TTT on this. Diane - 35 helps too.

My gynae is always like when you ready to get pregnant i got you what his treatment is i dunno. My derm and my gynae suggested the methform derm cause of the spots gyna cause he said my blood sugar was the higher side of normal (i crave sweets cause thats what PCOS does lol) 

When i finally gave in to  methform it had me all the wayyyyyyyyyy messed up (for a week). dropped my blood sugar too low and i had the nauseau, shakes, hallucination, and the hot and cold i sworse i was gonna die. UNTILLLLLLLL i realise i needed to break the pill in half and eat half before a meal, alf after. then i stopped taking it and that was quite fine with him.

The cysts can be a issue with conception but do you know if you are ovulating? Do you know the signs of ovualtion? Can you buy ovulation test kits? Ive been putting that off for 2 years now smh.

I know for a fact I am not ovulating. In fact the doctor said "your not ovulating". I'm not producing progesterone ? Idk what it was called. But the ovulation cycle isn't going all the way through resulting in cysts. So he gave me 4 months of BC free. I think he felt bad :-/
