Thank you for your sympathy and thoughts. My Dnc was last May and I was irregular at the beginning but have been regular for the last several months. I keep thinking, I will start any day now, but if I don't I will take a pregnancy test and call the Dr. It is just frustrating.

I am new to the whole tracking your cycle, could it be that your body is healing? I am so sorry for your loss. What does your Dr. say about the cycle change? I am so fortunate that my Dr.has a great nurse that I can email with such questions she keeps my mind at ease. I am keeping you in my thoughts!

I agree, find a doctor who listens and cares about your perspective and what is going on with your health!

My rant. This is small in comparison to what so many are going through but after losing 35 lbs I got pregnant, but miscarried and had a DNC at 10 weeks. I had been regular and after an adjustment time have been at 28 days regular for the last 4-6 months. This month I am at 34 days and counting. I have no signs of pregnancy. I gained about 10 lbs back with the pregnancy, but I just feel like my body has betrayed me. Why this month am I not at 28 days. Again minor in the grand scheme of things but I felt like I was moving in the right direction.

You definitely need to Dr. Shop and don't settle for a mediocre one because you deserve better.I hope you find a doctor that can make your dreams come true and I'm sorry that you have this dreadful condition. I was diagnosed at 21 and told that it would be very difficult for us to conceive. I am not going to give up and I don't take no for an answer when I know what is possible. Keep the faith!

Good Evening All!

I'm pretty new to this whole thing and don't really know how to start or the "right" thing to say. But I'm here and I supposed that's the whole point. I've been bigger than all my friends my whole life and have always had a curvier figure. I didn't become fat/obese (honestly that's what I am at this point, not derogatory smack, but a statistical fact) until my husband moved in back in 2005. My husband and I have both gained a lot of weight. I've gained about 100 lbs and he's gained about 70 lbs. Right now I'm at about 291-295 depending on when I weigh.

I haven't officially been diagnosed with PCOS, but my previous OB/GYN said she was sure that I had it and put me on progesterone and metformin. Then she had a little girl and decided to take time away from her practice. So, I got a new guy. I'm not sure I'm at all happy with him. I had 2 paps in 3 weeks and both came back "unclear." Basically he said my cervix was too inflamed and there was blood in the tissue so the test was inconclusive, made it sound like it was my fault even thought I've NEVER had this problem before. He put me on an antibiotic (for STDs - yeah try explaining that to the hubs when you've been married 7 years!) And now, trying to schedule a third pap and it's literally taken me a month to get anyone to call me back. So, I've been putzing around for 3, almost 4, months and haven't made any progress.

My periods have always been irregular. One month I'll have one, the next I won't. Sometimes it'll be "regular" and some months barely 2-3 days. I've been taking Ovulation tests for the last 4 months and nope not ovulating. And he just won't listen to me. I told the nurse when I finally got her on the phone that I wanted to talk about fertility meds (clomid, whatever) and she said (I kid you not) "Oh, well I'll have to make sure he knows you want to talk to him about that and not just get another pap. Because he'll probably want to run more tests before doing anything."

So, now it's looking like 6 months before I even get to start trying to actively conceive. I'm 31 years old and everyone I know is pregnant or has a child or two. I really do feel like a broken toy and that there's no use in doing anything anymore because I haven't even started to get "fixed." Which is definitely effecting the marriage.

WOW! That's a super long rant. I'm really sorry. Just had to vent and get that off my chest. Any ideas or tips on how to handle this new doctor? Should I just move on and find another or vent my concerns and frustrations to him?

Michelle

I have been so bad over the past several months. My hubby and I have been trying to get pregnant and my PCOS is being a you know what. *grumble* We have surpassed the oral medications and are now onto the injectables. During the past several months my emotional eating has gotten out of hand. I lose weight then I gain it back with this emotional eating. I need to get this under control but not sure how. I too have been dealing with depression alot and stress about how we are going to pay for all these medications. I am thankful that my parents are helping but still does not feel good having to ask for help. Arg!

I am new to pcos. I so far HATE IT! I try so hard to remain positive and motivated to do what i need to in order to reach my goal of conceiving but it is so hard and emotional. I am beginning to wonder if i will ever be blessed with a child of my own. Mike and i have went through 2 miscarriages and i am terrified of another.

Dear PCOS sisters,
I also have PCOS. After a m/c and a tubal pregnancy in 2010, I decided to make a change. I started exercising on a daily basis for about 30 mins a day. (Wii fit is a great place to start) I became much healthier, and my menstrual cycles became more regular. After losing 40 lbs. I found out I was again pregnant. I tried not to get excited due to . the loss of two prior pregnancies. After going to the o.b.g.y.n. we found out we were blessed with a healthy baby. In December of 2011 My sweet baby boy Luke was born!! Do not give up hope! I had become very discouraged at one point, but if you want it bad enough, it WILL happen. Best of Luck to you!

Dear all,

I am new to this community, but not new to PCOS.
I too feel very bad and devastated when I see everyone getting prego so soon and not me :(.. I even had one m/c.
but one good thing is if i run regularly i get my periods back and regular, hope I ovulate too...though cycle is longer 34 days or so.
So I am hoping again for something good.But I too think people doesnt understand our pain in real.I have niece,nephew and I love them a lot.But still when I see a prego woman or someone with small kid i feel bad. I know i should not, but still i feel like that :(.
My DH is very understanding, but i feel i am unworthy, an incomplete woman without a kid.

Yes this is a very hard thing to get through. I have been married for almost 4 years now with no luck of getting prego. My sister just married in june and was prego by july. It is very hard for me to see all my friends that i graduated with having kids like its nothin.I really do get so discouraged sometimes that i want to just say forget it i don't even want to try again. And i don't know about anyone else but it really takes a toll on my husband too. I didn't think it would as much on the man but they can really be hurting too. I suppose it is just hard all around

I too believe that people don't truly understand what it's like to be in this situation. It seem like everyone around me is getting pregnant. My sister in laws have no trouble popping out kids, nor does my husbands ex-wife. My husband has two kids with the ex and don't get me wrong, I love them to death but it's not the same as having one that is mine. He doesn't understand the pain, anguish, and frustration I feel when we find out one of our relatives, friends, etc. is expecting. It's comforting to look at this board and realize I'm not a freak, there are others that have the same struggles I do. Good luck to us all on our SP and baby quests.

I felt the same way. when i see people having babies so easy and i cant i cannot help but to get jealous. We will one day get our little ones that we so desperately. I went through a couple rounds of clomid with no help and i kind of gave up. I got so discouraged and being 23 with fertility made me even sadder because most of the time i feel like nothing will ever help and that i will never get my little family that i so desperately want. I have done a lot of research and for the pcos i found that a lot of people have "reversed" if you shall say the effects of the pcos by simply cutting out sugars. well once i started really looking at sugars on label's its hard to do when EVERYTHING has sugar. I'm not even a snack eater so for me personally i felt like what am i doing wrong then? most people truly dont understand what it is like to have this and deal with the fact of trying for months or years without being able to conceive. its a hard thing but having people like this around us will help. I still keep trying because i want to have my little family more then anything. Good luck to you on your baby journey and keep your head up :)

Ok, so I have been a member of this thread since July and have not yet posted. I was working 3 jobs (2 of them fulltime) for 4 months and have not had time to get on the internet period! I have not had time to excersize or eat right either. Now that one of the jobs is done I am looking forward to having the time to do those things again. I have been feeling really down lately with all the people continuaklly getting pregnant around me with no effort. My husband and I did fertility treatments for 3 months with our son (who will be 6 in Marfch) and then tried for 18 months after he was 6 months old with nothing. I am now 30 and he is 33 and we have not been trying, but not preventing it either and nothing. Now it's time to get back into the excersize and eating right routine so that we can really being trying. Reading everyone else's posts here made me sad for everyone else trying (because I know how it is!) but at the same time made me feel for once that I am not alone.

Well heres a little bit about me ladies. Since I'm new to all of this i figured the best way to go about this is to share a little bit of information. I'm now 23 years old and for most people my age its very simple to get pregnant. but not me. The first time that i got pregnant was months before my 21st birthday. I have always been family orientated and i have been with the same guy for 6 years now so having a baby was a no brainier. I know a lot of people question having a kid this young but honestly I'm glad that we got pregnant unexpectedly because had we not i never would have found out about the pcos. well once i found out about the pregnancy I was so happy until I miscarried at 11 weeks. Then i got pregnant again a couple months later and lost that one too. well forward to now and i have been trying every sense then and have had no luck. i try to be as active as possible but find that my diet isnt helping anything that i do. Its so hard to see everyone i know and literally everyone i know become pregnant around me. Its so hard to go thru this and not a lot of people my age have to go through this at all. so does any one have any tips at all concerning pcos and trying to get pregnant? any help at all would be more then welcomed and appreciated.

I feel your oain too....

I got married first, out of four siblings.... older brother has two boys, young sister, who went through IVF and had twins, but lost them. Then got preg again with my neice who's 1yr.old and now she's trying again. She was implanted last week and now I'm just waiting for the call to say that yes she is indeed pregnant again!!!!

To make it worse, my little sister (21 in Jan, college drop out, living the wild life) is three months pregnant!!!! The father is not in the picture and she has mental issues. I am beside myself, but thankfully I know jesus, so I know my time is coming.

I know what your going through.. except it's worse for my situation. My friend and her boyfriend tried for a weekend.. Yeah you read right.. a WEEKEND. Then her boyfriend decided he wasn't ready for another kid and tried to force her to have an abortion. Thank god she never did. Her baby is 7 months old now and it's still hard sometimes to talk to her with feeling jealous. I was there for the birth of her son and stayed in the hospital with her after she had him cause her boyfriend is garbage.

My sister in law tried for a month. And my sister got pregnant with my niece after trying for 3 months. Had the baby, then 2 months later got pregnant AGAIN. And she's not even with the father(s). It's crazy how life works out right??

hello! No one has posted here for awhile so i'll add a post! :)

I am 25- married about a year ago. i lost FORTY pounds in college. OMG wow! you go girl... and then gained it ALL back... plus more.

I'm 250 pounds- OMG - the ladder that we bought for our new house supports only 250 pounds- that's a kick in the ass!

My husband is hot and he loves me to death! but it's hard for met to feel all that love that he wants to give me when i don't love my own body.

I found out i was pregnant the day before my 25th birthday (june 5). i was shocked- we weren't trying. then i was wondering when i would actually show since my belly is already big. i wanted to lose like 80 pounds! but what a miracle! no fertility issues i guess? We were starting a family- what a perfect life.

Then about four days later, I found out that I miscarried. We think i was early in my pregnancy so it would be considered a "chemical pregnancy" which is a miscarriage before 5 weeks gestation.

So now that i want to conceive soon.. i am trying to work out and eat healthier again. I got a DVD from Biggest Loser- Power Walking. love it! great way to start out. Do it in morning and when i get home from work- for now!

First Baby! It's a boy!

omg i know how you feel girl when my step sister announced she was pregnant 1 month after getting married which by the way she didnt want in the first place said she didnt think she was going to get pregnant very easy lol, but i felt the same way my hubby and i had been trying for 2 years when that happened and i just wanted to cry all the time and she would rub it in my face every time i saw her or at least it felt that way to me and when she had the baby i didnt go to see her i pissed a lot of people off but why punish my self thats all i would have been doing but anyways after she had the baby she complains all the time she cant do this or cant go here and she wishes the baby would sleep all the time. you just keep your head up girl try not to let her bother you it will only make you more miserable and give her satisfaction if she is trying to annoy you im only saying because i have been there and i wish you all luck on ttc and losing weight :)

Last week was a super rough week - my older sister announced that she is pregnant after less than two months of trying. I had told her when they decided to try that I really didn't want to hear about it. Apparently she didn't think that applied to finding out they ARE pregnant. Then to add to the crappy feeling - she's stealing the baby name I picked out a long time ago. (and yes, she knew it was what I wanted) Then when I called my mom about it, she just said that she was staying out of it.

Ugh. family is the worst. emoticon I fell off the wagon for two days and now I am trying to get myself back on track. What I really want to do is just lay down and cry until I can't cry anymore. But I won't because I am worth more than that.

I used to go to the gym religiously, 5 days a week. Lately, my workouts have been tapering off, and I make excuse after excuse as to why I can't go. I'm depressed, I'm exhausted, and I don't have the energy, but I know I'm not going to be able to get pregnant if some of this damn weight doesn't come off. Ugh! I'm so frustrated at MYSELF.

Don't feel bad. Part of the process is allowing yourself to have slip ups....don't think that I haven't been on the other side of a whopper wrapper....we all go through it. Just allow yourself the slip up and move forward!!

Yesterday was a rough day that started at 6:30 a.m. I filmed a career day and had my lunch bag with snacks and stuff to get me though but when we were still going at 6:00 p.m. and the company bought burger king... I indulged. I didn't stop at the whopper... I also ate the fries... every last one! Oh man!

Thanks for the encouragement MANDY.

I was kind of low on the 7th. I feel better yesterday and today.

I know that part of my weight gain is due to thyroid but a lot due to just having a lot of stress at work and home (my husband and I started a business 2 years ago and we are really struggling with it plus I work Full-time as a nurse and a 1 yo daughter). I just haven't been eating well at all.

I'm trying to be faithful in a few small things in the next few weeks.

Sounds like you're having a tough time. With the medical conditions listed on your page, it sounds to me like you need to work closely with your doctor for the best approach because both of your conditions, from what I know, make it extra hard to loose weight. I wish I could wave a magic wand for you, best of luck. emoticon

I am a stress eater and my life has been spinning out of control and that plus a health condition has enabled me to gain 28lb in one year! I feel terrible and am 2 lb. away from my all-time high which I was at 5 years ago but haven't seen in nearly 4 years.

Ugh!! I want to eat my cookies and ice cream but I can't take just a little....

My work schedule has been pretty crazy this past week so my routine was all screwed up. I didn't get to exercise like I wanted to. I think the stress of the job is finally getting to me, I'm a juvenile detention officer so I deal with highly stressful situations on a daily basis. Only thing to do now is move on......so here I go!

I myself am slacking again this week with excersise. I don't know if it is the weather or the stress from holiday shopping that is making me so darned tired. By 9 at night I am wiped out and I don't want to get up at 5 am....so the last three days no workout..I'll get back on track. And the snow is coming today so I'll burn mega calories shoveling....

We all have our funks that we get into. Especially with the weather being cold (don't know where you are though). If I need to kick myself in the butt to get going again, I like have a BIG mug of coffee and take a good walk. I know it's not the greatest way, but works for me.
