Hey All! I've had PCOS and Metabolic Syndrome X for 6 years now! I have tried Fertility medicine to get pregnant, and nothing had worked.... It's very sad to hear that having children probably isn't in the cards for you... especially when having a family is very very important to you.

THEN, I started feeling weird, I was drinking bottles of Pepto a day and couldn't understand why I was feeling so queezy ALL THE TIME! I took a pregnancy test just out of curiousity and WOW! I was Pregnant!! I took 3 at-home tests, and had two different doctors confirm it... haha. I'm STILL in shock, and this was in OCT. of '08! I was put on bed rest, however, because I was high risk- but I am over 6 months now and due July 11 with my baby girl! =) I couldn't be happier.

If this has shown me ANYTHING, it's that what's meant to be will happen. Be patient... dealing with infertility is stressful, painful and sometimes depressing.. but havin a baby will happen for you, one way or another =)

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I had been having problems with my periods from the age of 15. I experienced weight gain and when I say weight gain, I mean I put on just over 8 stones in a period of 12 months. At the age of 19 I suffered from a miscarriage. I had seen several doctors, had scans and various tests over the years. I was finally diagnosed with PCOS. The main worry was that any child I did manage to conceive would most likely end in miscarriage. I tried to put the negative aspect of PCOS and pregnancy problems to the back of mind and I concentrated on managing the symptoms instead. I was given the pill and despite already trying a variety of different ones, this one made me worse. I was then given Metformin (used to help diabetes sufferers) to try. The side effects of Metformin were severe stomach cramps and diarrhea. Then one of my friend suggest me to read the Getting Pregnant Plan e-book from http://aboutgettingpregnant.com . Thank God, I have a healthy pregnancy until now.

I have a slightly similar story. I had irregular cycles since I was a teenager (minus the time while I was on birth control). My husband and I decided to start trying to conceive, after 1 yr without success I spoke to my doctor. Anyway, after 3 yrs of trying with no success, I began seeing my amazing and currently OBGYN. He was amazing. I began fertility treatments (Clomid, HSG injections, Metformin, IUI). After 5 months I was diagnosed with Unexplained Infertility since all the medications were doing their job and it wasn't successful. We were told to start saving for IVF. That was 3 yrs ago. March 2008 to our surprise, with no treatment, I was pregnant. My daughter was born Oct. 19th. She is 7 months old now and is very healthy. My cycles have become pretty regular since having her and we're about to start trying for the next baby. I think it's easier to deal with infertility once you have one child, or at least I'll be more able to handle it as she was my miracle baby and if I am not lucky enough to have anymore, I love her to pieces and having her is all that matters.



I also believe that everything happens for a reason though when you're in the middle of dealing with infertility it's hard to remember that.
