I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was about 14 years old. That’s when my periods started getting few and far between so my mom took me to the dr.

She said, your testosterone levels are high and progesterone levels low. My weight was good when I was 15-17 but then I got into a relationship and I don’t know if I got too comfortable or what but now, I weigh more than I ever have. My husband and I have been married for 3 1/2 years, TTC for 2 years. We were trying naturally but now I’ve exceeded all my options.

I have an appointment on the 29th of this month and I’m both scared and excited. I’m scared because I’m afraid she’s going to tell me there is nothing she can do for me. Not that adoption would be a bad thing I guess I’ve always just pictured myself with the big pregnant belly and being able to say, you have your fathers eyes or my nose.

Of course I’m excited because I will hopefully start meds and hopefully get pregnant. I know it’ll take a while but I know it’ll be worth it in the long run. If anyone has any advice for me as far as what to say to the dr or anything, please comment. I don’t know what questions to ask or any of that.
