Hi, my name is Melanie and I’m 23 yrs old. I found out that I have PCOS last month. I haven’t had regular periods since I was 16 yrs old when I was put on the Depo Shot.
I stopped taking it when I was 18 yrs old and haven’t been the same since. No one could find out what was wrong with me. This doctor siad one thing, this doctor said another. I’ve been married now for 2 yrs and we decided to try for a baby last year.
My gyn told me to wait for one year to see if I can try on my own, nothing happened. I went to see a fertillist and they ran some test and told me that I have PCOS and I can get through this and have a happy, healthy baby. He reasured me and that ment alot. When the did a sonogram they found that I have what is known as kissing ovaries. That tore me up just as bad as the news of PCOS.
This lessens my chances of pregnancy. Its so hard cause all my friends my age are getting married and having babies. My husband has been very understanding though it all. I couldn’t ask for anyone better. So currently I’ve taken the first round of Clomid and Metformin and my body resisted the dose of Clomid.
So now I’m on provera to onset a period and then an increase dose of Clomid. The metformin is a continuous. The metformin makes my stomache so upset, i’m running to the bathroom seems like every 5-10 minutes. How embarassing is that at work.? I guess its a waiting game from now on. I’m praying everyday.
Thanks for reading, its good to get to talk to others with the same problems. I really appreaciate it.
