    Exclamation PCOS & Fertility

    I had laproscopy surgery two weeks ago and my gyno found fibroid tumors and ovarian cysts. He removed everything he could. He did some bloodwork at my 1 week follow-up and discovered that I also have PCOS. He put me on 500 mg of Metformin and will be giving me Clomid starting next month.

    We have been trying to get pregnant for 7 months and I feel like I have just been kicked in the gut. I have asked around and nobody else seems to know anything about this. I feel so alone in this. Can anyone let me know what I am looking at as far as what to expect. My gyno was very vague. Your help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Well, first of all......if you have insurance, and they allow it......I would see a Reproductive Endocrinologist. They specialize in infertility and hormonal syndromes such as PCOS and would be able to better assist you in conception.

    Infertility is just one of the problems that come with PCOS. You should see a specialist not only to conquer that, but the rest of the problems as well.......which is why I recommend a specialist. OB/GYN's do not specialize in PCOS and often they do not know the best treatment options out there. Every woman is different. PCOS can affect people in so many different ways, which is why a specialist would be better suited for any woman with PCOS because they treat every woman individually.

    I have PCOS and did have success after 4 months of Clomid. Best wishes to you.
