Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Message Board

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Board Index

I am 21 years old, and I was diagnosed with PCOS at 18. Every Doctor I saw kept telling me I needed birth control, while each one also disregarded my extremely irregular periods. They told me not to worry about it and just get on birth control. Finally I decided to go off birth control and get the answers I needed. Well, I was told it was PCOS, and that I needed birth control. I never filled any of the prescriptions from the doctors. I have also switched doctors many times. The one I see now didn't even write me a birth control prescription because I told him how I felt about it and that he could write it, but that I would not fill the prescription. I was taking multivitamins and these vitamins I ordered online called "Fertilaid". My periods were about 6-12 weeks apart. I would have about 5-8 cycles a year, although I have skipped 8 months before. I am not obese, normally weighing about 110 pounds, and I have had no evidence of insulin resistance. My current doctor told me that I should try on my own to conceive, but that it would be unlikely for me to ovulate or conceive. His words crushed me!
My husband and I started trying right away, figuring it would take a while. My sister also has PCOS, and she was seeing a fertility specialist. She was getting ready for IVF, and she kept discouraging me. She would tell me that her doctor said that my vitamins wouldn't help, and that I should just get on Clomid or something. It really depressed me even more. But I did my own thing anyway and tried the natural way. As soon as I quit worrying about getting pregnant, it happened. I took 6 tests before my husband or I could believe it. A few days later, my progesterone tested low, and my doctor put me on suppositories. And a few days after that I was in extreme pain and bleeding. It was a horrible experience and I feel for anyone who has to go through it. After the miscarriage I forgot about having children again, but in 2 months I was pregnant again. I was put on suppositories again just in case for the first few months. I am now 6 months pregnant, and doing great. I am due the last week of July, and I did it on my own! No treatments of any kind, just vitamins, and against all the odds from what others told me! I advise everyone to have hope no matter what anyone else tells you. Some women need the treatments, but obviously some of us do not. Nobody knows your body better than you do! So do what you feel is right and don't let what others say discourage you because no one has all the answers.
