: Hi.
: Im a 15 year old girl and i recently was diagnosed with polycistic ovarian disease. I don't know very much about this disease and i am curious to know more. I am on medication to get my insulin level down because it is at 66.4 and the normal is 33. My first question is will I be able to have children when I get older? My doctor didn't really say anything about infertility but I have read a little about it and i have found out that it is a factor. If anyone has any info on this topic i would greatly appreciate it.

It is much harder to conceive when you have PCOS. I tried clomid after 13 months of trying for a child, and after one cycle I was pregnant. Unfortunately I lost the child, this is another symptom of PCOS, you are more likely to have miscarriages.

Everyone is different though, some people I have spoken to haven't had a problem with having a family.
