Results from the fertility specialist.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Got the results back and I have to go for more tests. I have what the doctor thought I had(PCOS) and I have started on medication. John has plenty of swimmers, but they are a little sluggish. He says that no matter how little I eat or how much I exercise I would never have lost much weight do to the syndrome I have. Now with medication I should be able to get thinner which will help with getting preggers. It is still going to take a while. Good news is we have started the treatment. I have to take 1 pill a day with a meal for 1 week, then 2 pills - 1 with each meal for another. Then I am up to 3 pills per day - 1 with each meal. I am not a breakfast person because it makes me nauseous on the bus. But the doc says that I need a full breakfast - things like bacon and eggs. I have to seriously cut out carbs. I reallt hope this works!

That's good news ady, that they found something that can be treated! I hope you do better with the meds and diet. I would hate to have carbs restricted, but my co-worker (male) did that, and lost about 30 pounds, feels great, and has had his blood levels monitored throughout, and found not cholesterol problems or anything else.

I am always available to share recipes with you if you'd like. I'm a very committed for life, "balanced carb" eater, who loves to cook and I have some awesome recipes!!

Best wishes to you with the metformin and to you and your husband with conceiving a child, I know what it's like to go the fertility workup route.

Oh that's so good that you at least know for sure what is going on, and there is a way to potentially fix it. I hope it works out for you Ady!

Adrienne, I'm really rooting for you. But - if it doesn't work out, please contact me. I went through the same thing - family pressure, fertility tests, hormone treatments, sex according to the calendar/temperature, five miscarriages. I'm lucky - I have six nieces and nephews, and about eighty students (also my "children") at any one time. I had to have a hysterectomy last year, due to problems apparently caused by the hormone treatments. I have come to the conclusion that having kids is simply not my fate in life. I've tried not to be bitter about it, i.e., not to become too "pro life", i.e. anti-abortion, or to flip out when I read about child abuse, but it's difficult. Don't let this take over your life. Whatever will be, will be, or, as the saying goes, "Man proposes, and God disposes". Take every opportunity available to you, but if you reach the point where you begin to question what is "too much", listen to your inner voice.

Ady, you should check out the PCOS support group message board at WebMD - I don't have PCOS, but it is right near the endometriosis board (which I do have) and several women who post there have both conditions. I've been visiting that board for several years through my diagnostic process, and it has been great.

Here's the address -
