Need advice
Hi there.  I'm new to this board but i am looking for some advice.  I had been having irregular periods for about 6 months (between 28 days and 40 days) and these could be very painful sometimes.  I went to the doctors just to check nothing was seriously wrong and was sent for an internal scan.  I got the results back and the doctor said I had polycystic ovarian symptoms (cysts on my ovaries) but then she began to list other symptoms and I couldn't match any with myself ie. excess hair, weigh gain, overweight.  I'm 5ft 8, 60kg, my bmi is spot on, i eat healthy, am fit etc.
My main issue is the fact that for the whole of last year my partner and I had been putting money away as we were planning to start a family in the new year.  Obviously this will be much more difficult now and i'm being put off the idea of trying as i dont know how i will be able to cope if i cannot get pregnant as its the only thing we want.  Just wondering if anyone knows the chances of me becoming pregnant naturally or if this is not possible what treatments will be available to me?

I have had PCOS since I was 16yrs old and I was able to conceive my first pregnancy naturally... with no issue. That was 6 years ago... I have tried to conceive since then and have had multiple  miscarriages. But my friend, who has 3 children has PCOS and was able to conceive all her children naturally. So I guess what I'm saying is that you never know till you start trying... what will happen... and you may also find that you are stronger then you think you are... and that you will be able to cope with whatever happens. I never imagined that I would have 4 miscarriages in my life... but I'm amazed that each time I did... I got through it with my husband... and at this time... we persevere and keep trying.

I hope all the best for you....
