PCOS and Fertility

Hey all! I am new to Peanut. I have always wanted to have a baby, that much I know, but I have been worried I will not be able to carry due to PCOS. I have an appointment with the fertility doctor in October who can give me some insight on what to expect, however, I was interested in seeing others stories. What has been successful in combatting PCOS symptoms and fertility? Anything I need to prepare for? Things I can do health wise? Thank you in advance!

Hi! I have PCOS and am 22 weeks pregnant. It is definitely not as easy of a journey but it is possible. I had to take letrozole to help me ovulate to get pregnant and I watch my diet very carefully now that I am pregnant. He is healthy so far. There is hope!!

I have PCOS and I am currently pregnant. I did lose 2 babies and had to completely change my diet and life, but it’s been worth is to be so close to having this baby. I was determined to try the natural-ish route before going full fertility support. We literally had our first fertility appointment in LA 2 weeks before finding out we were pregnant with the little girl On my belly now. I did seeding, Whole Foods, plus supplements and gut health products. I started waking everyday and not gonna lie I was the healthiest I’ve ever been before conceiving this baby! I’ve stayed consistent through this pregnancy and haven’t even put on as much weight as I had lost before starting my health journey. My pregnancy has been amazing compared to life with Endo and PCOS. I hope you get as lucky as me! 🥰

Hello, I tried for years and years to conceive to no avail, with different medications and fertility support. After practicing a gluten and dairy free diet for 3 months and having good old fashioned sex for the fun of it we conceived and I’m now 6 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I never ever thought this would happen after so long of trying but it has and it can. Stay positive xxx

Good call on the gluten! I actually have been managing my PCOS for the last 13 years my being gluten free. Mind you, key word is manage, but it has been life changing!

My PCOS affected me differently.. i had great difficulty concieving because my ovulation couldn't be tracked and i only had maybe 4 periods a year and they were completely random. But conception was my problem, I had absolutely no trouble carrying to term with a healthy baby.

Hiya. I was diagnosed with pcos this year after coming off my implant of 15 years. I wasn’t getting periods and weight gain that was unexplainable and my dr referred me straight away. I have been to see the fertility doctor and I am now on metformin 1500mh a day. Also taking inofolic alpha to help. Hope you get the answers you want xx
