Dream come true

by Leela

Dear All:

Well, I was diagnosed of PCOS when I was 28 years old. Have been trying to conceive since I was 30. Went to a gynae for a year and nothing prevailed. Frustrated like many here.

But I didn't give up. I started to exercise, lose weight, going through all the tips and reading all the success stories in this webpage. Dreamed that one day I will also write my success story to be an inspiration for others.

I ended up switching gynae (fantastic one) and within four months got pregnant with Gonal F injection.

It was a dream come true, finally we were preggy!! Had a great pregnancy, enjoyed every moment of it. Gave birth to a healthy baby girl on the 25th of October 2013.

I'm enjoying motherhood, fully breastfeeding my 7 weeks old baby girl. Every time I look at her, I feel I have finally won my battle against PCOS.

I sincerely wish that all here will experience motherhood soon, as it's the greatest gift of all!!

Never give up, think positive and always remember you are not alone in this battle!!

Other ovulation induction options
by: PCOS Editor

Congratulations, Leela! Glad to hear you had a successful pregnancy and are breast-feeding.

Fertility drugs like Gonal F and Clomid are commonly used to induce ovulation. While they are sometimes effective in helping you become pregnant, they don't always work. And they have side effects and potential risks if used in excess. So choose your options carefully.

Here are some additional ideas for anyone who wants to induce ovulation and become pregnant.

1) Make sure your vitamin D level is not too low. Get a blood test.

2) Make sure your thyroid gland is producing the right amount of thyroid hormones.

3) Reduce insulin resistance by improving your diet and increasing your exercise. Insulin resistance is the inability to efficiently utilize the hormone insulin. This causes you to have excessively high levels of insulin, which force the ovaries to over-produce testosterone.

4) Take nutritional supplements like berberine or d-pinitol to help you control insulin resistance. Vitex can help you to produce more progesterone, which is necessary in order to have a complete menstrual cycle.
