    Question: I have 2 children and have been trying for one year to have another (had a MC in March 2009). I had a sonohystogram and my gynecologist said that the doctor who examined me made a note of possible polycystic ovaries. He didn't seem concerned at all. Is it possible to get PCOS now (at the age of 36) even though I've had two very healthy pregnancies?

    I believe it could be possible. I have a good friend who had 3 girls with no trouble whatsoever and then later developed PCOS.
    It probably wouldn't hurt to get further testing done.

    What type of testing? My gynecologist/obstetrician is also an infertility expert. He didn't seem concerned with the results from the ultrasound/echovist/sonohystogram that I had done.

    I believe they check testosterone levels and insulin as well...I'm not completely positive on that since I haven't been tested myself.

    Thank you. Reading the symptoms made me feel a bit better. I don't seem to have any symptoms (other than oilyish skin and having trouble trying to get pregnant now).

    I am making an doctor appointment today. I think I could possibly have PCOS! I have been trying to keep myself from getting to down about it until I get checked out. But based on the "symptoms" of PCOS, I am pretty sure this is what it is!

    Talking First Time TTC

    Hey Everyone! My name is Samantha. Just recently me and my husband have decided to try and have a baby but I went to the doctors because my periods have been irregular this past year; and he diagnosed me with slight PCOS. (but I'm confused because I still get my period) I have an appointment 24th of August for a follow-up. To help out the process I just started using ovulation tests to see if I even ovulate and Im going to start charting my body temperature; just reading up on everything right now so I know I'm doing it right. I would really like some advice; would really appreciate it. Thanks

    you don't have to have NO periods to get PCOS. I still have mine, they're just further apart than they should be, and can be very unpredictable.

    Hi, I just found out I have POS. We should have been checked along time ago.I found out while I was having Endo removed. We have been trying for 8 yrs for another baby. My son is turning 9 and really wants a little sister.: ) Today is my last day on Provera and I think I may be starting. YAY!! lol It's really light so i'm not sure. Dr. said I would know but I've never been regular so I never know what my body will do. Hopefully it is so I can get to the other pill and begin trying AGAIN to get pregnant. Well that's all for now. I'm tired and can't think straight. lol I'm just rambling. My story is very long and crazy, but that's for another day.

    Well ladies I am a PCOS old timer. I have had it for 9 years. It can occur at any age and it is able to reverse itself. I have reversed mine alot, but the damage it did to my body is still very real. I was told at age 15 I will never have children and if I plan on having any kids at all, I will have to have medical assistance just to get PG.
    I have GERD, type 2 diabetes, joint issues, cystic acne, and hypertension because of PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome. I was told 6 months ago that I am able to get PG, but the doctors don't know why I am not staying PG because right now I have no cysts on my ovaries. I have regular cycles of 27 days and I ovulate CD 13 to 16.
    If you think you might have PCOS it's sooo important to push the issue and get your doctor to do blood work and an ultrasound! I was diagnosed by ultrasound. My blood work was perfect, but I was 200lbs by age 13. My doctor knew I had it and kept doing all the testing she could until the last test was a u/s and sure enough my ovaries were clustered with cysts. I have one of the worst cases every documented in the midwest according to my 6 OB/GYN's and the endocrinologists that saw my file. After the u/s they did more extensive testing...I had the testosterone level of a 15 year old boy at the time...I have done birth control and diabetic medication. Nothing worked until I went on depo for a 2nd time and then I started loosing weight. I went from 250 to 195. And right now I'm at 200 and I'm an insulin dependent type 2 diabetic with hypertension and everything else. So if you all have any questions about the treatments of anything, you can PM me.

    Hey all. New member here.
    Just wanted to start out by saying how I loved reading all the stories... makes me feel not alone! I've never known anyone else diagnosed with PCOS.
    I was on BCP for 10-15 years or so... went off in the beginning of 2006. Got pregnant in August and miscarried at the end of October. For most of 2007, we really weren't trying at all. As I said on the "TTC after loss" board, I was hoping in the back of my mind that it would just happen, but it never did.
    The time between my periods (all throughout 2007) was long - one month would be 40 days, the next would be closer to 50 days. I had a feeling it wasn't normal, but I never had normal periods to begin with. That was the whole reason I went on the pill when I was so young (plus, I also had a HUGE cyst). Anyway, when we decided to start trying again, a few months go by with nothing happening. I was doing OPK (they worked for me the first time I got pregnant). Went to the doc and she orderd a blood test and it comes back that I'm not ovulating. So, I go on clomid and the second month it worked for me. Miscarried at like 6-7 weeks (this was in June of 2008).
    After that I went to see a fertility specialist. Not only did he suspect that I had endometriosis, but he said I had PCOS. I was a little confused - I'm not overweight, don't have excess hair, don't have any symptoms what-so-ever, except that I don't ovulate. He said that not every women that is diagnosed with this has the same symptoms.
    Long story short (well kind of), all my fertility tests came back negative. I had laparoscopy/hysteroscopy in Aug. 2008 to remove lots of endo. Got the go ahead and try again at the end of October. November, December, January - NOTHING. No BFP. As the mental strain was seriously getting to me, I decided to go off clomid - I was only on 50mg and HATED it!!! Well, what's weird is that my periods have been normal since then and I've had positive ovulation tests. The nurse at the clinic said that I'm probably ovulating on my own which is good. What sucks is that it still hasn't happened yet. We did take most of the summer off though - we just started trying again this month.
    I guess what I'm wondering about is the PCOS... I would love some input from anyone! I dont' know if I really have it, or if he was off on his diagnoses? I do need to go back and see him, but it's so expensive! Anyone else out there like this? I actually got pregnant the first two times pretty easy! It's so frustrating not knowing what is going on with your body!!!

    I don't think he diagnosed with you PCOS or he would have told you. PCOS can just occur and it can also reverse itself. And it's very true not every woman has the same issues with PCOS. Sometimes it just takes one medication failing to actually getting the body going again.
    If you are concerned, just call. It's your medical records, so you have access to them! As long as you are Oing and you're having regular cycles I think now it's just a matter of timin1g. DH and I BD from cycle day 9 to 19. KUP!! I'm stalking you!

    Oh yeah..I also wanted to add that I have excessive body hair because of PCOS....I am not afraid to admit that I have excessive butt hair....We all have it, but mine is very noticeable and darker than the hair on the rest of me...so I wanted to just put that out there. So if you have it...don't be scared...it's normal!

    Hi Everyone. I was just diagnosed yesterday with PCOS. Before then I haven't heard anything about it. I am hoping to learn from all of you ladies who have it.
    Here is my history. Been TTC for 6 years after M/C. Sought medical help in January. Was diagnosed with Ashermans and had surgery to correct this. Still no PG after. I was using Ovulation kits but it would never show up that I was ovulating. My cycles are always different ranging from 26 days to 36 days. And flow is only 1-2 days and very light.
    I gained 25 lbs this year and have no idea how. I haven't changed my diet or exercise plan. Also have extra body hair. I will be having an ultra sound next month to confirm no ovulation and starting clomid on the cycle after that. I really have just started looking into these topics, so I am hoping I can learn alot from this forum
    Thanks for listening Kara

    Question for you gals: Is it more likely for me to have a BFN with the PCOS? I've been gaining weight lately and my boobies are sore. Every time I poas, it's negative. I'm thinking about scheduling a blood test since it's more accurate, right?

    It's been a while since anyone posted in here, but Starsgoblu - your problem with staying pregnant makes me wonder about your progesterone levels and luteal phase defect. You should ask your doctor about these possibilities. If your luteal phase (time between ovulation and period) is too short, or if your progesterone is too low, it could be the cause of your recurrent miscarriages.

    here is a little bit about me...
    My husband and I were TTC since a few months after we were married (Jan 09). My period came randomly (every 2 months, every 4 months etc). I talked to my GYN and she said it was totally normal seeing as how I had been on the pill for 8 years and was just coming off of it. I didn't buy it. I knew that there was something else going on. After a year of heartbreaking BFN's, I decided to go to a different (and better!) doctor in April 2010. He ran a bunch of tests and gave me an ultrasound and confirmed that I had PCOS. He started me on Clomid (50 mg). With a failure last month, I returned to the dr this afternoon...he gave me another ultrasound and upped my dosage of Clomid (100mg).

    Here's to a new month (and hopefully a baby!! )
