I got pregnant with PCOS. Got pregnant on accident - no meds, no nothing. I had lost some weight and finally had regular cycles again, but didn't worry about taking precautions as I was told I wouldn't be able to conceive. Four months into having regular cycles, I conceived again (my doctor seemed a touch surprised). I was 35/36 years old during the pregnancy, ended up with gestational diabetes - but that runs in my family. The only real trouble was making it through the first 12 weeks. It was nerve wracking because women with PCOS have about a 50/50 chance of miscarrying before 12 weeks. After 12 weeks, the miscarriage rate drops to that of "normal" women. So, we kept the pregnancy quiet for the first 3 months. Moral of the story - don't be too sure your doctor is right. Tons of women with PCOS have had babies. For some it takes a lot of effort. For others, not so much.
Hi I had to have ovarian drilling to remove all my cysts, Then we did 5 rounds of injectable drugs with IUI I got pregnant on the 5th round. I'm currently 10 weeks :). I agree with myenzoorka these 10 weeks have been so nerve wrecking. I over analyze everything thinking I might loose the baby. So far my only issues were normal pregnancy stuff, nausea, vomiting, fatigue. I am also taking metformin, baby aspirin and prometrium and have to continue all three until 13 weeks. I had two doctors that told me I would never get pregnant :). It's possible just don't loose hope :).
yay for you and your babies! <3
I have a healthy 7-year-old, conceived naturally (despite dr's warning that it wouldn't happen). I went into labour 9 weeks pre-term, which I understand might be related to PCOS, but other than that we haven't had any problems.
Now trying for #2, I have much higher hopes, but must admit it's frustrating when cycles are irregular. Charting really helps keep hpt costs down :)
Best of luck! Hopefully we'll both be pregnant soon.
good luck to you too sweetie! i really need to learn about charting. but i don't want to be so focused on this i don't focus on anything else. its already becoming that. lol
I am 25 weeks pregnant with pcos, i was taking metformin(diabetic med) to keep my insulin level down plus i lost like 60 pounds before getting pregnant, it took 18 months on metformin and losing weight at the beginning of that than i got pregnant. With no other meds. I did have to take progesterone during the beginning of the pregnancy so I would not lose the baby. I took the progesterone till the second trimester started.
