i was 17 when i found out that i had pcos it was heartbreaking for me, am now 20 and me and my partner have been trying for a baby for over a year now and we are having no luck at all we got transferred to a gynecologist (not sure if thats the correct spelling) to get help and they have took the piss with helping us, i feel like its taking for ever and i feel like giving up. i dont want to say to my self its not goin to happen. i have tried everything i could think of doing to help but nothing. i think it would help me if i could talk to someone that has the same and knows what am going tho coz i feel like i have no1 to talk to about this. hopefully someone could help thanks

It broke my heart reading your story, i too have pcos and have been trying for another child for 7 years with no hope. i recently have started going back to see my gynecologist after having a year break from him, due to all the stress and the let downs of not getting pregnant i decided i would take a break, but now i feel fighting ready to get back on track and put some proper effort into trying again.
I have been prescribed metformin off the doctor and the side effects are hideous, but im persevere with big hopes it will work for me, im having my tubes flushed next week so hoping that will have some positive affect on my ovaries. i have done alot of research online and bought books to read to see if i can up my chances of having another child, i already have a 9 year old which was conceived naturally, so i understand that it is possible, but the thought of never having another child is so upsetting and depressing to think it will never happen its unbearable. I have a fantastic boyfriend who is amazing but im pushing him away with the negative feelings that i cant give him a child we both desperately want, im starting to feel like it will never happen and its justs gods way of saying now's not the right time, i don't know which way to turn, my gynecologists has insisted i wait before i am prescribed clomid as she wants to see if my ovaries are releasing eggs on its own but the longer i'm waiting the more i feel that sense of loss and i feel like i'm wasting vital time which could be time getting me pregnant.
Does anyone have any tips or advice i can use to increase my chances of getting pregnant and also does having a HSG and taking metformin help? im beginning to think it will never happen for me and i feel like i should be giving up!!
I feel so alone, and embarrassed i cant speak to any of my friends or family about this because my sister has the same condition but as i already have 1 child (from a previous relationship) i feel as though she is priority over me and i feel as though my family would judge me as been 'greedy' or 'selfish' for considering another child knowing she is fighting the same battle as me, and i should be grateful to even have 1 child rather than not have any!

I'm really sorry to hear about your struggles to concieve your second child. I know exactly how you are feeling, in sort of in the same boat as yourself.
I was diagnosed with pcos when I was 18 so 10 years ago now. In 2013 I fell pregnant with my first child completely naturally and had a normal healthy pregnancy. However, my husband and I have been ttc our second child for about 7 months without any luck. We thought we should get some tests done just to check if anything was wrong. Again I was told I had pcos which was probably the cause. I was put on clomid immediately which I took for 5 days starting cd3. I was called in for an ultrasound on cd11 to check my follicles but I was told they were too small and that I wouldn't ovulate. I went home and felt sharp twinges for a week so went back for another ultrasound and this time I had 3 good follicles. The dr said it looked like I would ovulate in a couple of days. I asked him to give me the hcg trigger shot to make sure I ovulated which he gave. I'm now in my 2 week wait, have no symptoms but don't have pain in my breasts like I do every month.
Advice I would give you is if you feel you are wasting time then ask your Dr for clomid because I feel it does force ovulation as I felt all the aches and pains as soon as I finished the pills. Also, every woman's body reacts differently so having the weekly scans are so beneficial as you might not ovulate when your Dr expects you to.
Just hang in there and things will start looking better!

Me and my husband have been trying for 2 years, now we are 10 weeks pregnant with our first child it's was a really shock and a exciting moment. I must have been pregnant on my wedding day and I didn't know. It's been a easy pregnancy so far 😊 xx

Hello ladies. I have some hope to give you! I had the same issues. I found a wonder doctor that helped me. I tried clommid which only caused my numbers to drop. I tried art I was on metformin for 3 years. The combination that finally worked for me was the doctor tweaking my thyroid keeping me on metformin and a few treatments with a medication called letrazole which cause me to ovulate each month I took it. Finally after a few months of trying I can say I finally became pregnant! I now have a beautiful 3 1/2 month old baby boy. The most important thing in all of this was prayer. Don't lose faith girls! I tried to conceive for over 15 years and finally with the right doctor and prayer I have my baby boy.

I also have PCOS and me and my partner are finding it very difficult for us to conceive.. Before I found out I had PCOS I had the marina coil in for around about 2 years. I am 19 years old. But I had the coil out last year in February and we was trying for a baby until May/June and that is when I found out I had PCOS! My doctors had never really given me any information on PCOS so I just looked it up online and it didn't really make any kind of sense to me. So ever since me and my partner found out that I hav PCOS it's been very difficult for both of us. My partner has been tested and he is completely fine.. it's just bringing me down.
Sometimes I miss my period by 2 weeks, I get all the pregnancy symptoms, I do a test and negative..
But I have just heard of something of HSG? is that any good?
Please hep xoxo

I do not have PCOS however I found out I have not been truly ovualting. I have been TTC #1 for 20 months (soon to be 21 due for AF any day now). I have very long but consistent cycles of 37-39 days. My progesterone level was 1 with last check prior to clomid. Just did first round of clomid 50mg CD 5-9 this month, currently on CD 36 all negative pregnancy tests. I know the feelings you're having. It's incredibly depressing never knowing when it's going to be your turn or if you're ever Going to have a turn. I've had at least 4 friends who on first month of trying (or not trying) have gotten preggo. I will keep you in my thoughts , good luck and baby dust you are not by any means alone!!!
