Mild Success So Far with PCOS but Have Found New Hope

by Sherri
(Quesnel, BC, Canada)

This past March, I suffered a devastating miscarriage at 10.5 weeks. I had previously suffered 2 losses and one premature birth, so I now qualified for infertility testing. After the miscarriage, I had to have a laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, ovarian cyst removal and ovarian drilling.

When I woke up from the anesthetic, a nurse told me I PCOS, and that was it. No one else gave me any more information; I was left on my own to try to figure things out on the internet.

The Dr's did some testing to try to find reasons for the repeated miscarriages, only to come up with nothing. At my insistence, they tested my hormones and found that I am deficient in progesterone, brought about by the PCOS.

As a way to try and fix this, they put me on Clomid, and the first round, I got pregnant again; only three months after my last miscarriage. I was put on Progesterone suppositories to try to sustain the pregnancy, but unfortunately, not even two weeks ago, I lost this baby as well at 13 weeks.

My Dr's have since told me that there is no hope that I will ever have another baby again.

I'm not satisfied with that answer, since I believe that there is a reason for these late miscarriages.

After finding this site, I now have hope that with some of the suggestions, I too will be able to carry a baby to term. My weight isn't too bad right now, but after two miscarriages within 8 months, it is a little higher than it should be.

I'm willing to try the diet changes, and am looking forward to working out again to lose some of this weight. I am also going to ask to be placed on an extended release form of glucophage, as this is something that I feel will help out tremendously.

But as of yet, my Dr's are very hesitant to place me on this. I'm glad that I have found this website, and will definitely be using some of the suggestions, and hopefully I too will become a success story.

Don't give up....your on to something with that diet idea!
by: Jodi

Please don't give up hope!! My heart goes out to you as I have also suffered from PCOS for 12 + years. I have had 3 miscarriages and the last one was at 20 weeks. Me and my husband were devastated and this ultimately led to our divorce in 2004. There is hope for PCOS and when the glucophage (metformin) and the januvia did not work for me like they were supposed to I went to the natural stuff. I've been taking the Herbalife products for 2 months and I've now had regular cycles and have lost 16 lbs. I have energy again and no longer feel depressed. Just don't give up, let me know if I can help!!

Multiple Miscarriages
by: Anonymous

I have had 6 miscarriages in 8 eight years. I just found out last week why I've been miscarrying as before it's been explained for no obvious reason. My cervix has been my culprit. Apparently it began opening up and then I would miscarry. I've had miscarriages at various weeks, my longest pregnancy sustained till 22 weeks and the shortest 7 weeks.

Don't give up hope, but maybe you should find a doctor who will really listen to you. That was my key to finding out some answers.

My heart goes out to you

When I went through Clomid treatment, I got pregnant on the first try. 6 weeks later I started to bleed and they sent me to the hospital and began very painful injections. I had to take these injections for my entire pregnancy. Actually at 7 and 1/2 months my doctor felt it was safe to stop the injections and 2 weeks later I went into labor. I got to the hospital at 8:30am and my son was born at 10:15am. Those shots never should have been stopped. But there was a good result.....My son is 6 ft.5 inches tall and has 2 children of his own. So I'm trying to tell you to not give up. Perhaps you need a different fertility doctor. One who will use something else beside the progesterone suppositories on you. I hate it when the doctors make the decision for you that you will be unable to have any children. If you want to continue to try you should be able to. Maybe you might need one of those cerclash (sp?) It's where they tie your cervix closed. I will be keeping good thoughts for you so that you can have a full term baby one day.
Sincerely,
Cathy
