PCOS Update 2
I was diagnosed with PCOS June last year, and even though hubby and I wanted to start ttc, I went back on birth control for 6 months to try to get my out-of-control symptoms back under control.
My plan was to regulate my hormones enough to ovulate right after stopping them again and have a shot at pregnancy.
Went off the pill at Christmas, tried in Jan without success, but I did end up getting my period right on schedule, so I sent in an update, all excited that my cycles were back to normal.
Unfortunately, the following month, my cycle disappeared - 3 months passed and still no period.
Frustrated, I decided to tackle the problem head-on.
I started trying to change my diet, I ordered a bunch of products online including fitness/yoga dvds and various supplements (vitex, etc).
Imagine my surprise - before I was even able to implement my new plan properly - to find out I'm pregnant!
It's still early days, and I'm obviously concerned about possible complications, but I wanted to send in an update and encourage you that pregnancy is possible.
Hopefully future updates will have more good news to share.
