Welcome Adrienne!

Sasha, go see another doctor. Proper treatment will help you lose the weight - in addition to the lifestyle changes you're making from here, of course. Dr. David Ehrmann at the Center for PCOS at University of Chicago Hospital will work with local doctors to educate them on treating PCOS patients.

I'd like to go slap your doctor in GR. Would he/she refuse treatment until you lose weight if you had cancer? Heart disease? Diabetes? If you don't get treatment for PCOS, you're at risk for all of those. It's not just a piddly fertility issue.

OK, off my soapbox, sorry! Anyway, welcome aboard!

I'm in limbo right now. My specialist in GR won't do anything until I lose some weight so that's where I am.

We just were in South Haven on Saturday. Ate at Ma's Coffee Pot...yummy.

I'm sorry for your loss. It's never easy.

Are you doing anything to get pregnant again?

Hi Adrienne,

I live near South Haven, MI! We're not far from each other.

I'm sorry for you loss. I miscarried in 2002, the only time I've ever been pregnant.

Good luck to you and best wishes on trying to get pregnant again!!

Hi All,

I'm Adrienne and I'm in Benton Harbor, Michigan. SW Lower corner.

I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and went thru fertility treatments only to have them end in miscarriage. I have a healthy and happy 4 1/2 yr old daughter that was conceived with no problems. Just can't get preg again.

I've started taking Metformin, 1500 mg a day. I'm hoping to loose more wieght and have another child.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Adrienne
