Mild Success So Far with PCOS but Have Found New Hope
(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.
