This is my first post so a big hi to all from me! Im really confused and i am hoping someone can help me. I have PCOS and have had problems all of my life. I am 21 and my system has never worked correctly, which i partly blame on poor advice from docs. The reason i say that it becuase my periods were so heavy when i started, i was almost amnemic so they put me on depo provera (at the age of 13!!!) without explaining that this would have a detrimental effect on my fertility. After doing my own research once leaving school i realised what i was doing to myself and decided to make a change. I stopped using the contraceptive injections and tried to let my system naturally settle - which it still hasnt 4 years later!!! I am considering purchasing a fertility monitor but i recently i have been seeing posts about how this may not be the best thing for PCOS, especially since i very very rarely have periods. I know of the clearblue one but i have been hearing very good reviews on the duo fertility monitor - do any fellow PCOS sufferers use a monitor? What are your thoughts on these? Is it worth the investment for my condition? Does anyone have experience of clearblue AND duo fertility monitor?
Also, sorry forgot to mention my tubes are partially blocked, i very very rarely ovulate......
I want a baby more than anything and typically (as im sure is the same with you all too) i have always known my life will revolve around hvaing kids and being a mother and ive felt this was very strongly since i was 14! I have met my prince charming and now i am desperate to start a family - tho i fear it will never ever happen.
please help and share your wealth and thoughts, i will be eternally grateful.
Hi sorry to hear that you also have to walk the line many of us have to. i have always had cycle issues, but i never knew until a few weeks ago i officially have pcos. i dont fit the bill of it at all, so thats why im sure it was over looked. i found an amazing OB when i was pregnant with my first daughter and they discovered now 2 years later this is why it took 5 years for me to conceive her. anyway, i have no idea about the monitors, i just bought one too, before i found this out and have yet to ttry it. my only advice would be find an OB...not just a GYN ...you want an OB that specializes in fertility issues. had i not found this one im using i would never have known that i have this hurdle. now the way i conceived my first chilkd was i went thru a test where they injected die into my tubes to see if they were clogged, and the die actually pushed loose anything that was there. not sure if this would help with your blockage but its an option maybe....NOW I WILL TELL YOU THIS...IT IS A TERRIBLE TEST TO GO THRU, BUT WORTH IT IF IT WILL HELP CLEAR YOUR BLOCKAGE. then after they did this i did a folicle study starting on day 13....found out i ovulated that month on day 18.....this may be something you will have to do for a few months until you produce a good folicle, but once its there you should be able to conceive. find a good dr and go from there. i just went and saw the fertility specialist last week, well see what happens from here. good luck with everything.
I don't know if this will help you, but this is supposed to get your system to work all naturally. No pressure! You can check it out here. But then again, I assume you've tried everything there is to try, as you say it has been over 4 years now. Anyways here's the site http://pregnancymiraclereview.org/
There is really so much you have to consider when trying to get pregnant. The truth is PCOS is not really a friend as far as fertility is concerned. Trying to get pregnant with PCOS is difficult and many women who have gone through this will say same.
I think you have done almost all you can do, but I would like to suggest this great guide which helped when i was trying. It might not cure your fertility but it will teach you some few things you can do right so as to increase your chances. Here is a review on the guide: http://www.articlesbase.com/pregnanc...w-1089695.html
