Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

New to this board and just really wanting to ask for I'm not sure what? Reassurance that all is not lost? Experience stories? Perhaps just a bit of sympathy.
I'm a 26 year old newly wed not that me and husband are ttc right now but it's something ever since I remember I wanted.
Over past couple of weeks I have been having tests for a couple of things and today doctor agreed I have a lot of symptoms of pcos weight gain very rare/odd periods that are very painful and a couple of other bits.
I am not really close with any women and I don't feel comfortable talking to family yet until I know if or not I have it.
I don't know how to handle the "you'll be having babies next" or even worse a lady at work thought I was going to tell her I was pregnant today and it makes me really sad inside each time it happens as it's something I want more than most things and I am at a stage where I may not be able to have it
Sorry for the woe is me I just needed to share my feelings.

Welcome to MD.
I think we have a few ladies on here with PCOS. (Me included) : Take a look at this post : mumdrum.com/.../18167.aspx might give you some hope :)
I have been lucky enough to have fallen pregnant twice now - Inositol you should google it :)
I am sorry to hear your already finding the pregnancy announcements - They don't really get easier either :(!

Welcome to MD.
I have PCOS and almost non existent cycles. I've just started taking a fertility drug called Clomid which helps women with PCOS to ovulate - it doesn't work for everyone but fortunately it's worked for me. So there is definitely treatment available, although I completely understand how frustrating it is when your body just doesn't do what it's supposed to do naturally.

Welcome to md. I used to be a regular here but now I never get time. I have PCOS, ttc for 2 years with my ex h, then we split up as I was supposed to start clomid. TTC with ex partner and fell pregnant 6 months in. My 11 month old is now sleeping soundly in the next room.
I have PCOS, anovulatory cycles, had missing periods for 10 months at one point, failure to develop uterine lining and still managed to have a baby, there is hope but it can take a long time. I cried when I saw kids or babies by the time I got pregnant, I found it really really difficult and I know others have had a longer wait than me to get their precious bundle. I also take metformin to manage my weight as diet and exercise do nothing, might be worth chatting to your doctor about as often losing weight can help with the pcos symptoms
