PCOS And Pregnant

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!

Sorry, I meant to say this will be my 2nd child. The 1st pregnancy just off birth control was successful and I have a 16 month old DD. After she was born is when I started suffering all the m/c and trouble getting pregnant again b/c my hormones were all out of control again.

hi, i am married for a 1 year anf 8 months, been diagnosed of pcos for 6 years already, been going back and forth to my ob for series of check ups. recently, my ob was about to give me fertility pills since we are dying to have a baby. your stories lifted my spirit and gain a glimpse of hope that i can be pregnant in the future (hope sooner). I just want to ask, if you can recommend an endo to me? im so desperate to get pregnant. im 26 years old already. thanks a lot!

i had just found out i am 3 weeks pregnant...finally! i dont know whether i should be happy or terrified for the fact that my chances of miscarriaging are high. i am extremley confused because this is my first pregnancy and ive been taking fertility blend and metformin for the past few months now. i am scared if i stop the fertility blend,my hormones will go outta wak again thus causing a miscarriage. does anyone have any advice????

The BEST advice I could possibly give You is to MAKE sure to Stay on the Metformin until you are at least 12 weeks pregnant. I did not do this with one of my pregnancys and had a miscarriage!! With my next pregnancy I stayed on the Metformin for 12 weeks and had a beautiful healthy baby!!! And well 6 babies later,,,from taking clomid & Metformin I am over joyed to encourage everyone that there IS hope!! After 10 years of greif and not being able to get pregnant!!! It was the most awesome thing ever, when I found the Slution to FIX my body long enough to at least get pregnant!!! :0D So my best advice is to stay on the Metformin for 12 weeks and take your Vitamins!! Be Blessd, Yvonne

I am 16 and it's possible I might be pregnant... I was diagnosed with PCOS about a year and a half ago and was put on birth control pill then. I was taken off of it because it made me sick. Without the pill I get my period about every three months. It's been about two months, but I don't know when I would get my period again. How long should I wait before taking a pregnancy test (I would have gotten pregnant about two weeks ago)?

I am 30 and was dx three years ago with PCOS and started the drugs. They made me so moody that I stoped taking them. I had a child when I was 22 and never thought I would have another since I had PCOS. I started 6 months ago working out and doing lots of cardio and eating a low fat, low carb, high protein diet and lost 20 lbs. My periods started becoming normal again and my acne was better (only broke out right before a period, like before). I just found out I'm pregnant. There is hope for someone like us to get pregnant with this. You have to work really hard and just relax. Good luck!
