My bloodwork

So, they said I 100% have PCOS.   

So frustrating.  This explains my inability to lose weight the past few months despite trying various diets and exercise routines.    This is even more frustrating because now I need to see a fertility specialist/endocrinologist, because I am not ovulating and you can't get pregnant when you don't ovulate..  I also need testing for insulin/prediabetes as apparently thats common with this disorder too.   I saw the hell one of my best friends went through with this disease and really don't want to follow those footsteps.

Whoever it was who emailed me saying they had more info, email away... I'll read everything I can get my hands on at this point now that I know it's a fact.  

and Ben's away, so I don't even have someone here to vent to/hug .. sigh.  

Frustrating day.

    So sorry to hear. At least you are able to know the cause of those problems.

    Just out of curiousity, what were your symptoms that made you decide to get bloodwork to find out what it is? I've had cysts on my ovaries before (over the summer one bursts and I was rushed to the ER) but I don't know that is considered having the sydrome or not? I don't have any other symptoms.

    So sorry Oods! I don't have any expertise or knowledge on this, but let me know if you'd like to vent/talk about anything! BP may be onto something with checking out TB message boards since they seem to have some experience with this. Wishing you the best!

    Sorry to hear the diagnosis, but I'm glad you have some answers now and can start to move forward in a productive way. Its also good to find this out now before you start really actively TTC so you aren't wasting months with no results.  You may not ovulate on your own, but there are drugs out there that will help you with that.  I know a lot of ladies with PCOS who have healthy, happy babies, so its not a "no baby" sentence.  good luck with the research and let me know if you want to talk/vent, etc.

    I'm so sorry to hear about all this.  I feel your pain-- I really do.

    If I can reccommend an endocronologist-- Dr. Kelly Loftus.  She's located at St. Mary's.  She's my endo and I think she's fantastic.  She gives very clear answers and won't sugar coat things.

    Sorry to hear.  I was diagnosed with PCOS in high school and my SIL also has it.  Being on BCP helped me with a lot of my symptoms.  Like I said in the post before my SIL has 3 healthy kids.  It may have taken them longer, but it can happen with PCOS.

    Sending some serious HUGS your way!

    Sorry to hear this, but at least you know for sure. It certainly seems to be a bigh PITA, but at least there are some positives - aka successful pregnancies.

    Good luck. We're here if you need to vent further.

    II'm sorry Ooodsie! I know it can be a tough thing to face. If you have any questions or just want to talk to someone, please let me know! There are couple really good books out there for you to read. If I ever get my boxes with books unpacked, I will give you the name of them (or you can borrow them). I'm going to be sending you a message on fb soon.
