New PCOS diagnosis

Hi all, I got a PCOS diagnosis today and I just feel really sad about it. I am TTC for the first time this week and was so excited that we might get pregnant but this has cast a real cloud over that. I have no idea how to manage PCOS or what it might mean for my ability to conceive now or again in the future. I have regular periods and have had ovulation confirmed at past scans but I just feel a bit frustrated that there’s something wrong with me that might affect our ability to have a family and a bit like I’m broken. I don’t really have a question, I just wanted to express my worry and hear from any of you who might have gone through this too! Lots of love xx

Don't worry, it can cause problems but doesn't mean it will. I have pcos, very erratic cycles, could be up to 50 days. My first I conceived in 2 months, just got pregnant again first cycle trying, though I used LH strips. The only thing I did was take pregnacare conception, myo-inositol (which helps if you have pcos) and followed the SMEP method. I didn't track ovulation the first time but did this time. Anyway, don't worry you only just started trying and might not have any difficulties. Good luck!

@Tanya do you mind explaining the SMEP method please?

Of course, basically having sex every other day until ovulation, ovulation day and the day after. With my first I just did every other day between periods, this time tried to follow SMEP. You can find more info here. (Miscarriage trigger warning),again%20on%20the%20fifth%20day.

@Tanya thank you so much. It’s really kind of you to have been so reassuring!
