    There are several treatments out there. You need to see a reproductive endocrinologist. If you can't find one close try a regular endocrinologist.

    I have had PCOS since I was 6 and endometriosis for years. I now have 2 little boys!!!! Don't give up. See a specialist and insist on getting treatment!

    Unhappy Re: i need support with my pcos

    I have been also using metaformin for about 17 days.
    I have severe acne and i did everything but nothing works, instead of working those treatments has made my acne worse.Last month one dr. of medicine told me to have USG and testosterone test. in report i have very normal hormone level and no cyst in ovary but my ovary size became large, right side is over the limit and the left side is on the top most limit. I don't have any hair growth. The only symptoms are i have irregular period, sever acne and large ovary (without cyst). So dr. concluded that i have pcos. he told me to take metaformin 500mg (1/2 + 0 + 1/2) and giane-35 (or diane-35). I also went to a gyno and she told me positive about the pcos but informed me that nothing to worry about this and she will give me treatment once i get married.

    I am single...so now not in tension about having baby but i am very much worry about my acne. i want reliefe form this. so i am taking the medicines that were perscribed by the medicine dr (metaformin and giane35). I think these will work both for my pcos and acne.

    so, kim86 don worry about having baby, you will definitely have it. but can anyine tell me whether i'll get rid off my acne with these medicine or not? if my pcos is cured ( as i heard that it can be cured) and ofcourse i'll have to stop medicine, will that situation bring my acne back??? though this is not a doctor forum else i am asking with the hope whether anyone would have experience or knowledge........

    oh hun, I am so in your shoes and walking with you. I'm 28, I was diagnosed at 17 too. I've been married for 4 years and trying to have a baby all this time too. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I pray a lot yet when I look around my friends who party all the time and drink and smoke are all preggers and seem to be be as healthy as horses. That upsets me! I'm brought to tears too sometimes but I haven't lost hope. I still trust that God will bring me my reward in time.
    I gained about 50lbs since I was 20 and losing weight has been so hard, I'm currently having a 135 day period and it is frustrating. I had a biopsy done yesterday and I'm on meds to stop the bleeding, hopefully it'll work this time.
    I understand your hurt and frustration, has your doc prescribed Metformin for you? I'm supposed to be on that but it upsets my stomach a lot but from what I've heard it works wonders.
    I started seeing a specialist in PCOS and she has dealt with lots of cases and she has assured my that I can get pregnant I just need to stick with the meds and keep trying. Hang in there, you'll get there soon.

    I know what ur going thru i really dont know what to doif to just honestly make myself live with the thought of fear i wont get pregnant or if it one day happens for me be scared i will mis carry idk. I will just have to see and pray everything turns out in the end because i do believe that one day when we are parents we will be better because of this and cherish everymoment to the fullest so really it could be a blessing in disquise b cuz some parents dont know what it feels like wanting a child so bad and not being able to have one as easily as other nondiservant parents that abuse their children...
