I Need Help With Pcos

Morning aunty Eya. Please keep my identify a secret.
Am married for 2yrz now and have been diagnosed with pcos. 


I really want to have my own kids but I don't know how to go about this
issue. My health plan doesn't  cover fertility plans and we can't afford it. Don't know if anyone knows any gynecologist in the house that can help. Plus I have hormonal Imbalances  too. Please save a life.
Is there anything I can do?

    Ʊ я contradicting urself. How did you know you have hormonal imbalance and PCOS if you cannot afford the services of a gynae? Is it not a gynae that will arrive at the diagnosis after you must have gone through series of tests, scans and xrays? Anyways, if your tubes are ok, just the way Ʊ came online to post to Eya, stay online and take a course on fertilityfriend.com so you can know your body well. Also, google forums for women ttc, you will see forums where a lot of women had ur same issues consulted gynaes, the drugs they use, and are now mothers. That was what I did sha and now am due in November.

      Try fertilaid and preseed. Also take a really good prenatal vitamins. Most of all continously go to the giver of life and plead your case.

    Pcos is a bitch and thank God u knew early. I have it too and it has killed my self esteem via obesity,facial hair,deep voice and anovulation. I took placed on drugs and I had twins and without any medicatn I got pregnant and I just had another boy. Don't worry, its treatable. Where is ur location so I can refer you to a gynea?

  4. Dear poster, I can write a book on PCOS. I was diagnosed with it at d age of 18 and as u know its a lifetime condition.
    Majority of ladies with pcos do not ovulate and those that do only ovulate a few times a year and they might not know.
    If u really want to concieve plz try these:
    1. pray and fast like u have never done b4 on this issue.
    2. Try to see a good gynea who will run tests on you b4 and after ur period to ascertain if u are d type that ovulate.
    The tests will also include a scan of ur ovaries to see how big the cycsts on ur ovaries are and if u need surgery to get rid of the cycsts.
    3. Before any gynea can offer u fertility treatment they have to check if your tubes are fine by running a dye test on you which is basically pouring a dye substance in both tubes to check the substance will sip through. A sperm test will also b run on ur hubby.
    4. What type of test was done on you that shows u have pcos?
    5. Do u have other symptoms like irregular or no period, facial hair, excess body weight?
    6. Your diet is very important when u have pcos. Eat as little carbs as possible. Eat wholewheat carbs like brown rice, brown pasta, brown bread. Eat good protein like beans, fish, advocado, nuts and seed, veggies and salads. Drink lots of herbal tea like: green tea, lemon and ginger tea, detox tea and stay very far away from sugar and sweet food/drink. If u are chubby or not plz concentrate on having a healthy diet as losing weight is almost impossible for women with pcos due to hormonal imbalances (don't add any more weight and exercise regularly even if its once or twice a week but stick to whatever ecercise plan you adopt).
    7. Before you start any fertility treatment plz read up a lot about pcos and stick to the do's and don'ts of pcos. Remember that you can conceive naturally with pcos and you have been married for only 2yrs so always speak to God regarding your fertility and pcos.
    Have a very active sex life bcoz ovulation is not monthly for most women with pcos and its not easy t spot ovulation with pcos. When u see a gynea ask for a medication called Clomid to help you ovulate and the gynea must monitor u on this clomid proper as it has certain side effects.
    8. Pcos in 80% of cases runs in d family. Speak to ur mum or sibilings and ask how they managed theirs. Always stay positive as pcos comes with depression and other things especially when u begin to question why u are different.
    9. Believe God will do it and u can conceive with pcos.

    I have struggled with pcos since I was 16 but got diagnosed at 18 and now in my early 30's. I was referred to a gynea coz my period was only 2-3times a year and I wasn't ovulating, was getting mustache like facial hair, weight issues and lots more. I dated my hubby for 7yrs and got pregnant just after we got married however it worried me to death that I never for once got preggy within that 7yrs of dating. To God be the glory I conceived naturally and we are blessed with 2 kids and 1 on the way.

    Poster I can carry on till 2moro but don't let this get you down. You shall have testify very soon IJN. Amen

      I got similar advice from a doctor in nhs.bUT I would advicd you start with your diet first because hormonla imbalance whoch has to do with insulin resistance.And also ladies with pcos tnt to have a high probability of having diabtes later in life.So pls watch wat you eat especially sugar. do as lizzy has sed and eat in small quantities too.I usually don't recommend going on medication because they are all temporary(Lots of women say so plus my experience).Start with internal and natural treatment that is your body weight and nutrition and sleep well and THINK LESS!Also pray about it.prayer plus hardwork would give you all you want darling.

    3. Thanks for adding that diabetes bit. Very important to keep diet n weight under control to avoid diabetes later in life as pcos comes with insulin resistance.
      I pray my daugther of generation to come don't get this, its a lifelong struggle.

    I used to see my period every month before I got married but didn't really bother if it came out on regular dates or not since it always came out monthly. After I got married and started ttc, it was kind of difficult so I went to my gynae and was diagnosed of pcos,I rejected d verdict immediately befr d doctor but wen I got home,out of curiosity,I wantd to knw wat it was really abt and wen google came up with answers,that was d start of depression for me. Fortunately,my husband was by me all tru and saw it as a spiritual challenge,telling me that its d devil at work and is using pcos to get me faithless. He banned me from going to those websites and together we searched d bible for scriptures on conception and safe birth and had it pested on our bedroom wall,everyday,we wud remind God of his promises ising those scriptures and sometimes I would go naked literally and cry to God to turn d cysts to babies bcos ppl I got married at abt same time wit were having their babies already and frnds had already started talking about how I haven't been able to give my husband a child. I told God d house was getting boring wit just me n hubby alone and so he must give me my own child. Before I knew wat was happening I had implantation bleeding,I remember that fateful morning wen my hubby was parking his bags to travel out of d country,I had secretly tested wit a strip and d result was mind-blowing dat I sang songs of thanks giving to God while I danced to tell him d good news. Meanwhile we had told God hw we wanted d kids to come and had named them bfr conception. Exactly d gender we wanted first came forth and 6months after delivery,I took in again and am expecting the second and all diz came naturally because we activated our faith and saw it as a test of faith. D bible says "from d begining it was not so" so wateva dat wasn't put in ur body by God is an affliction from d pit

    1. Halleluyah!! I love testimonies.. They are proofs that our faith is not in vain and God that did it for one will do it for all that believes. He is not a partial God, he is faithful! All we need to do is to believe that there is nothing impossible for the creator to do.

    Thank you all for the piece of advice, I was diagnosed of ovarian cyst yrs back and had a surgery to remove it because the monthly pains it caused me was unbearable. Six month after the surgery I went for another scan and was told there is another cyst on same side of the abdomen. I resulted to prayers cos my bible tells me with fasting and prayer miracles happens, I am sure by the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth I shall come testifying for the delivery of twins on this site soon.
