No I didn't, being a single parent wih a multitude of other health issues wasn't something I would choose. I would bet an adoption wouldn't even have been a possibility anyway in my circumstances. I am ok with it now. I have had many other children to love, nieces, nephews and friend's children, so I have been blessed in that respect.
I saw your own post about the OBGYN...time to get one who'll take you seriously and get working with you ASAP on fertility. I wish you luck.

I am sorry to hear that you weren't able to give birth, but did you adopt children?

I wanted to post a message I originally posted in the Insulin Resistance group's forum a few minutes ago since it was about PCOS Hope my story connects with you ladies too. Here's the message and the link to the rest of the thread follows below.

I totally agree, we were born with it! My story is the same, super skinny kid, puberty, odd periods from the beginning(skipping 6-12 months, having one, skipping more months and usually 32-35 day complete cycle if they were regular...ever) weight gain at puberty, excessive hair growth, high blood pressure by 18, extreme weight gain in early 20's, high tesosterone levels then full on Type 2 diabetes by age 30....and never a pregnancy.
I didn't know anything about insulin resistance before being diagnosed with Diabetes, back then I don't even think doctors connected that and weight gain with PCOS. I have done all my own research once the internet came into my life but when first figuring out that I even had PCOS it was at the library and weeks of sitting there reading the medical reference books on the endocrine system. So little was known about PCOS at the time that my gyno(a top fertility specialist where I lived at the time) went so far as to say my symptoms were psychological and lets worry about it when you want to get pregnant. Not having periods for 2 years at a time was in my HEAD and not a physical problem???? I was 27 by then and married for 5 years and wanting to be pregnant! His main concern was putting me on hormones to cause me to have 3 week periods a few times a year so I didn't develop uterine cancer.
So for you younger ladies...walk, walk, walk and reduce the insulin resistance early in your lives. And get the weight off so you don't develop Diabetes. Make the lifestyle changes early and stick to them, it only gets harder the older we get.
Advice offered from a woman who always wanted children and will never have them from her own body.
