Jessica - August 2

Hi Lisa, I was also dx with PCOS last year and my doctor told me I would have a very slim chance in becoming pregnant. And I am 10wks now. I 27 years old. And I do have a child already. But sometimes doctors don't know alot of things especially with pcos. I was on the pill and I got pregnant. Hang in there.

I have PCOS and have successfully conceived with the help of Metaformin and Gonal-F. I'm approaching my 11 week and scared to death losing the baby. My OB took me off the Progesterone Suppositories at 8 weeks. What are my chances of losing the baby this far long? Also will my delivery be a C-section because of the PCOS? Thanks in advance. ajjb1020@aol.com

Amanda, Pcos does not affect how the baby is born. I have PCOS and apparently will deliver v____ally. I too got pregnant with the help of metmorfin. I never got my progesterone levels checked and now I am at a healthy 15 weeks. I think the doc. did not bother with me because everything seemed normal from the beginning (hcg levels, ultrasound at 7 weeks.) If the doc says things look good please trust her. If you have made it to 11 weeks and have seen or heard the heartbeat you are totally producing the right hormones and will be fine. Have a happy pregnancy!

Evy-Thanks so much for your reply! It gives me hope. My husband (& his buddies) keeps telling me to stay off the internet, but it helps to know there is support out there and others who are going through the same emotions. Thanks again! Good luck to all! Keep on glowing!

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I am 24 years old and have gone through a miscarriage. I was so upset. At the age of 17 I was diagnosed with PCOS, RH Negative Factor, and insulin resistance. My husband and I tried for two and a half years to get pregnant. In 2005 we had success. I carried 3 1/2 months and lost the baby. Completely devastated, my husband and I stopped trying. We want more than anything to have a child but because of insurance, we cannot to Clomid. Is there any other way to get pregnant with these conditions? I was told that taking birth control actually harmed my chances of getting pregnant because of how low my counts were. We are at almost three years now from losing our first child.

I am sorry for your earlier loss. My husband and I tried for years to get pregnant, and gave up. I went on Metformin for the PCOS, and it was a new doctor. She said I should start birth control or I might get pregnant. As shocked as I was DH and I discussed if we wanted to try and bamm three months later we got pregnant. I devivered a healthy baby 3 monts ago. However, I did get GD and had to eat healthy. Because of the GD he was in the NICU for 2 weeks with RDS. Good Luck!

After 2 Miscarriages, I learned the hard way. But You MUST~~ stay on Your Metformin for at least the first 12 weeks, to prevent~ Miscarriage. Once my Dr. made me stay on the Meds, the Pregnancy took!! And well,,,6 Children later. I still have PCOS but refused~ to let it take Control of my life!! I am also Over weight & I am 35yrs old, and pregnant with my 6 child. My others I took clomid, but w/ this baby all I did was up my dose to 1650 and apprently that was enough to get me pregnant, w/out fertility drugs!!! I was shocked~ to find out I was pregnant, when I was'nt even trying!!! Before I had always only took 500 to 850 mg.to make me have periods. So this pregnancy is proof,,that you CAN~ get pregnant, just by being on Metformin!!!

I was diagnosed with PCOS and with my first baby I got pregnant after two rounds of clomid/metformin. My son is now a year old and in April I found out I am pregnant again. With this pregnancy I did not use fertility meds. It just happened naturally. I truly believe that once you have your first child, it becomes so much easier to have more children naturally because you aren't constantly thinking about how badly you want a child when you already have one. So yes, you can definitely get pregnant without meds!!

I need to know how successful clomid is, if anyone can help. Thanks


PCOS83 - July 11

I have PCOS and got pregnant right away after treatment of birth control for 2 years. Then I suffered 3 m/c after trying with Clomid. Finally, I began the Metformin and without the use of Clomid I got pregnant about 12 weeks after starting the meds. I am now 6 weeks along and continue to take it. I know it is stressful but you can get pregnant with PCOS, you just have to have everything balanced just right and find what works for your body!
