Advice on PCOS

Hi i have had my PCOS since i was 16 and now im 27 after having 8 yrs of struggle TTC i would like to here if anyone on here has had a healthy pregnancy with PCOS? also what is the longest time you have gone without your period? my longest to date is 70 days, at the mo on day 45 so seems like another long cycle again.for the last 2 yrs my cycle has not gone over 40 days so just a little worried now that it has seemed to take a back slide and go abit irratic again.

Any Help will be appriciated.

Hi
I got diagnosed with pco last month but have probably always had it as periods have been bit irratic just thought it was me, but did fall pregnant in 2005 and had normal pregnancy and gave birth in the august to my son. Unfortunatly i also had a misscarraige in april last year but have been told its unlikely that this was down pco just one of those things. As far as periods go it is actually 8 months today since i last come on!! They just stopped with no sign of returning!! After 4 months of not coming on i went to the docs and had bloods which showed elevated LH and low progesterone i then went for scan which confirmed PCO, I am waiting for DH SA to come back-should get results today xfingers then if o.k will start on clomid.

There are many girls on here that can give you more info on this as i am still in the dark really

Good luck to you

Hello
I am 26 and I have also been diagnosed with PCOS.
My periods have always been very up and down, sometimes i can go 6 months with no period and then I can be quite regular for a few months.. you just never know lol!!
I currently take metformin 3 x 500mg daily.
I have been pregnant 4 times. 3 were conceived naturally and One by a clomid cycle... Sadly 1 pregnancy was ectopic, and the other 3 resulted in miscarriages. Sorry to be sharing not so happy information.... I have had alot of investigations, tubes, chromosone testing, thrombophelia testing, etc and the conclusion is that : I have been very unlucky and the PCOS is a contributing factor....
I started IVF treatment last year, all embryo's were frozen as I was at high risk of OHSS. FET - Last week! Now on the 2ww.

Good Luck on your journeys. :xxx3:

Hi thanks for your reply i hope you got your results today and they were good news did you start your clomid?

I have not had any pregnancies just late periods and still not had mine!!! I assume as you have already had a pregnancy your DH sperm will be fine and im sure you will concieve again. I am still waiting to for my Clomid and Metformin to start but hope to have some good news to put on here soon.

Hi thanks for your reply my cycles to be pretty similar sometimes they come every month and sometimes 2-3 months without what is it that causes this i guess its to do with the PCOS. When you started Metformin did they start you on a lower dose as i am starting on 500 mg and hoefully that will do the trick with 50mg clomid. Can PCOS make you more prone to misscarriage? I also have had a IVF cycle about 6yrs ago but no pregnancy i started to bleed befor my 2ww.

Fingers crossed for your BFP and hopefully have some good news to post.
