    Default Pcos

    I know it's nothing to do with dogs but I needed to get this out. After 85 days with no monthly .... I visited doc who sent me for ultrasound last week. Got results today I have poly cystic ovarian syndrome

    I'm realy bummed out about this cos OH and I were hoping to start a family and have been trying for nearly a year.

    I have to go to a specialist in the new year hopefully can work on fixing this up.

    Don't give up! I have it too, it is heavily genetic for many generations BUT I still was given a bouncing baby boy nearly 4 years ago despite being untreated. To give yourself the best chance keep a good extra healthy diet and exercise routine and reduce stress and you can coax your body into letting you become a Mum.
    Best of luck and remember there is still a chance you and your partner will be parents, it might just take a little longer

    A friend of mine has psoc and I think hers is fairly bad coz she has some of the hormonal factors like darkened facial hair and weight gain. Anyway, she had a beautiful healthy girl 7 months ago so there is still hope. There is always IVF too.

    *hugs* It's a very disheartening diagnosis, but it is also treatable. Imagine have fertility issues and not knowing the cause.
    I hope your OB is able to help you achieve your dream of becoming a Mum

    Commisserations Tessalyon

    I don't know what's worse news - "you've got that will make it hard for you to do what you planned with your life" or "we don't know what's causing your problem - you'll just have to live with it"

    ARRGGHH !!!!

    hopefully this is something that can be sorted out in your favour.

    I hope you haven't got the pain that sometimes go with cysts.

    The only time I skipped a lot of periods was when I was doing an extreme amount of exercise and got very skinny.

    I skip a lot now - but on purpose - by skipping the sugar. Because I don't want the pain that goes with the "we don't know what's wrong live with it" menses.

    Thanks for the support.
    Unfortunatly I have always suffered pain associated with periods and was on the pill for 13 years which only eased it slightly. I have been having constant pain on my right side for about 5 days now.

    It's good to hear that others have got this have kids.

    I need to lose about 10 to 15 kgs so I'm goin to start a low gi diet. (bad time to start so might give myself a free day on Sunday )

    I've always been the weight I am 70kg as long as I can remember and just never seem to lose more than 5kg before giving up but I know this time will be different kids is what I want more than anything right now.

    a dill or a bloke?

    A normal packet of wimmins birth control pills contains about 7 sugar pills. Which allow the woman's period to happen "all going well". But for some women - "all going well" is a nice fantasy and reality can involve headaches, cramps, diaorrhea, grumpiness (can't think why), and some other unpleasant things most blokes usually respond to being told about by putting fingers in ears and going "la la la la la".

    So the hormone crash and unpleasant side effects can be avoided by skipping the sugar pills. A couple of my GPs have said this is an ok thing to do. I don't have any medical issues that might make it an issue like a family history of breast cancer, or smoking. Ie it's ok for some women to skip the sugar and maybe not for others. And there is a slightly increased risk of some things going wrong and a slighty reduced risk of other things going wrong - depending on one's family medical history and genetics. Ie best to consult with a GP that knows your medical history well and has done their reasearch on wimmins things before skipping sugar pills on a regular basis. But if one's menstruation just happens to co-incide with a big camping trip - skipping the sugar is a really good idea.

    So you are aiming to be 55kg-60kg? Unless you are 4ft nothing I can't see how losing weight is a good idea? Especially as being underweight lessens your chance of falling pregnant.
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    I have to agree with ClareBear I am 5ft flat and my Ideal weight is 55-60kg S0 unless you are shorter than me your BMI should be about right. Don't forget Stress is a big factor too, if you stress to much it cause certain chemical levels to change which can effect your chances. When I fell pregnant I was going through the happiest time of my life, I had fun, worked hard and generally enjoyed life (I was 18 lol). I actually had a really bad diet at the time but my 14hr work days in a kitchen kept me trim at the time.
    So enjoy Christmas have fun it will help if you trust that your body happy and healthy can do what you want
