Even though I am only just about 25 years old. I will be over 30 when I am finished with school. My boyfriend does not want to get married until I am finished and we both want to be married for a couple years before we start our family. It scares me that it will be too late at that point. It makes me crazy and I wish I could just have them now. :-(

I know for myself, I have had two doctors tell me two different ages about when it would not be recommended to have children. My endocrinologist said that it would be okay up until about 42 and my ob/gyn said no later than 35. He said after 35, having children becomes very complicated. However, everyone is different so I think it should be based on each separate individual situation.

I'd never heard the 35 thing before. I'm 31 and have been trying for almost 3 years and have had 4 miscarriages. Where did you hear that they recommend not trying for them after 35 with PCOS?

Life is wonderful. Live it to the fullest.

I completely understand your situation. I will be 32 in April. I also am single and have no children. I find the older I get the more that I feel the need to have children. I have decided that if I don't have children by 35, then maybe it is not meant to happen. There really is no easy solution for this problem because each woman is different and has different issues because of PCOS. For me, I keep praying and asking God to give me strength to accept things I can't change.

I am 31, will be 32 in April. I am engaged to be married in June. I have been off birth control with my fiance for 2 years now, no luck for me yet, but I'm not giving up. My mom had PCOS also and had 3 of us, she had me at 33 and my younger bro and sis (twins) at 37 because the hormones were still in her system. I believe it will happen if we are meant to be parents, trying to stay positive :)

Well, I can't answer to having luck after 35, but I'm in the same exact situation. I turn 30 in Sept. I am trying to meet people via online dating, but nothing has turned into anything serious. I definitely relate, because I want to have a family, and don't know if it will happen...

Okay so this is something that has been on my mind and I wanted to ask people that have the same issues I do. I will turn 30 this summer, I am still single, not even dating anyone. So marriage and a family aren't in the works yet, but with my 30th birthday rolling in this year, I am beginning to freak out because I know they typically do not want woment with PCOS attmepting to have children after 35 and I am not even close to start trying. I don't know if I can, if I will just have a series of miscarriages. I'm emotionally frustrated with it cause I'm feeling that tick tock in the back of my mind (and from mom & grandma). Has anyone had any luck after 35?
