Diagnosed with PCOS and have pregnancy success!

by Amanda
(St. Paul, MN )

I had been on the pill since I was 17 years old. When I was 29, my husband and I started to try for a baby, so I ditched the pill.

To my surprise, my period became very irregular (and it has never been irregular!). Some months I wouldn't get it at all and would go 2 or 3 months with no period.

I also had gained some weight and could not lose it even with exercise.

I went to the doctor and had numerous tests done. The first doctor said she saw nothing wrong with me and gave me no explanation for my irregular periods.

I switched to a new doctor and she told me she thought I might have PCOS. She put me on a low carb, low sugar diet (no pop, cut out desserts, cut down on carbs).

I lost about 20 lbs. in three months and my periods became regular and I began ovulating.

My second month of ovulating, I became pregnant! I am currently six weeks pregnant after 18 months of trying to conceive.

My doctor is keeping a close eye on my progesterone and hormone levels to make sure they are within normal range for a healthy pregnancy. Also, I go in next week for an early viability ultrasound.

I know PCOS is a very frustrating and depressing syndrome, but I am proof that you can get pregnant with hard work and determination!
