I am 26 yrs old and recently Diagnosed with PCOS while TTC. Mine is not the diabetic kind. I finished my first cycle of chlomid and have been using a fertility monitor as well, only to read that it may not work for people with PCOS and chlomid can make the results wonky.
Most of my friends are either not trying or already have kids, so I don't really have anyone to talk to it about. My husband is very understanding and sweet, but I don't really know how to explain it to him. This thing aboslutely sucks and makes me feel completely helpless. I don't like the extra hair and I have always dealt with my weight, so knowing this makes it harder to lose doesn't help either.
I hate whining, but today I just feel like I might explode because I feel like such a failure. I have been getting more active lately, but I am still finding it very hard to change my eating habits. Which in turn makes me think about why if I would like to start a family so bad can I not just change my diet for it. Then that leads to me thinking I am weak and feel bad and then eat some more sweets.
I really wish all you ladies luck in dealing with this awful thing. Like how unpretty can this disease make you feel. Not only can you have wonky periods, but weight gain with it being harder to lose, acne, hair loss, excessive hair in the wrong places, and trouble conceiving. Makes you feel all warm and girly inside right?
All right. I am done now. Thanks for reading.
