Hope from your PCOS Stories

by Abbey
(USA)

I'm very thankful for this site.

I have reason to believe that one day I'll be able to conceive a baby even if having polycystic ovarian syndrome aka PCOS.

I've been recently diagnosed beginning of last year & must I say, felt very distraught. Only to find out not only will I have high risk of heart disease, high blood and etc. but harder for me to get pregnant.

I also just got married last March & my husband & I were planning to get pregnant right after that, unfortunately it'll take a lot more patience.

From reading some of your stories, gives me hope that I will conceive one day.

My OB/GYN was the one who diagnosed me w/ this disease and referred me to and endo (fertility specialist). He has encouraged me to go on a diet & exercise.

With the coaching of my supportive husband & my determination, I have lost 20 lbs.

I feel great.

Not only that, the specialist also put me on metformin & soon will start clomid.

Pls. everyone who has the same problem as I do, wish me luck & I will do the same for you all!! And don't give up hope....!

Editor's comments: Good work with losing the 20 lbs.! Weight loss definitely improves your odds for conceiving.

Here's one little secret to long term weight loss: consume more home-made soups and salads.

And don't forget to exercise and be physically active daily.

A healthy diet + regular exercise is as effective as taking metformin, according to medical studies.

In addition, selected nutritional supplements such as vitex or d-pinitol can be useful in helping you to normalize your hormones and improve fertility.
