I was off the pill for four months. My doc put me back on the pill because of PCOS. I went to her with Ovarian pain. I am getting married in Nov, and soon after my Hubby and i would like to try having a baby. What should i Expect? I am 27 years old. Never been pregnant, and honestly untill this diagn, i wasn't sure i could get preg! I had plenty of times i could have got preg, but i have never been.

I don't know anyone else who has this disease. I would love to hear from other women who do. My name is Jamie, i'd love to talk. Sad

Hey Jamie,

I was diagnosed with Pcos abut a year after I got married in 2008 after me and husband tried unscuessfully for one to have a baby with no luck. At first it was really devastating but we have learned how to cope with it.

When we first found out my doctor recommended a fertility specialist she recommended that we try clomid which is an inexpensive pill; it was not bad but didn't work for me and the fertility specialist didn't give enough attention because she was also a regular ob/gyn so my cousin recommended a reproductive specialisth I went to her about a month after I began to see her and it was a long but amazing experience.

My doctor paid a lot of attention to me and fortuntely fertility was covered through my insurance with my job. We went through about a 1 1/2 of treatment and we did invitro fertilization and it worked the first time and I became pregnant with twins. I ended up getting an infection and lost both of them at 17 weeks 6 days and although it was rough me and my husband tried again a few months ago and I am currently eight weeks pregnant. I haven't told many people because we are very nervous but this goes to show God's grace and that it can happen for you too!

I know this is hard to go through and don't stress yourself out about it. This is not your fault and when you and your husband are ready go to a reproductive specialist and they will talk to you and give you their recommendations then just hold on for the ride and it will work out. The process is difficult but just hold on for the ride and don't give up and you and husband stick together! You guys are going to have some difficult moments and their are things that he just won't understand even though his intentions are good just keep the faith and hold on!

Good luck on the wedding and let me know if you want to talk or if you have any other questions!

Jamie, welcome to the group, first and foremost! We're glad to have you here! In terms of trying to conceive, it's really different for everyone. You might need to see a reproductive specialist in order to get pregnant. They will probably start you off on the fertility drugs, like clomid before going into anything extensive. I personally haven't been down that road as I have yet to find a guy I'd want to actually start having babies with, haha! Either way, you are in my prayers, hon, and I wish you luck with your wedding! Let us know how everything goes!
