New here

I have been a regular on PW and now I've made the transition to this group. DH and I have been married a little over year and we decided to start TTC.

I've been off my BC for almost a week now, I was of Lo Loestrin. I am also taking Metformin for PCOS.

I've gotten checked to see how bad my cysts are and good news is- I have very few and very tiny cysts, so hopefully there will be no problem TTC. Here's hoping that things go well.

Anyone else have PCOS and have any stories about TTC with that problem?

Welcome!

I don't have PCOS, but I wish you the best since it seems your dr is on top of things! GL!

Seems like my entire family has PCOS. My daughter is 17 and has it very bad. She has to stay in bed 2 days a month due to pain.


I have PCOS and my cysts are quite large I don't have too much pain anymore.


My SIL also has PCOS and she had to go the IVF route.

Thanks ladies!


 


My mother and sister both have PCOS, my mother never knew she had it until recently. I got checked out and as soon as I got the results I told my sister to get checked. My sister actually as a BAD case of it, luckily she is nowhere near having kids (dont think she is even interested in kids)


Luckily my case is less severe. I don't have many of the symptoms that most women face (just the unexplained slight weight gain which is under control now thanks to Metformin and Phentermine.) Plus my cysts are so small that my doctor told me I shouldn't have anything to worry about. Only time will tell though.
