Feeling overwhelmed

Postby Mrsurban2011 » Wed Dec 09, 2015 4:37 pm

I went to the RE, to get my results and start a treatment plan. It seemed like everything he said was bad. I have PCOS, which I hope is treatable, but the bad part was hearing my ovarian reserve is not good....1.86. My testosterone is high, 40, looking at all the blood work I've done I'm not ovulating. They want me to start birth control once my period starts, 2 cycles of letrozole, and if that doesn't work laparoscopy surgery. I have to schedule an insulin test soon. I cried all the way home. All I'm hearing is the struggle is even more or non-existent for trying for a baby. I asked would we be able to have 2 more if possible and he said it's going to be hard having one more and even harder having another. I just want to roll up in a ball and cry. I don't want to sound like Debbie downer but I'm so unfamiliar and confused. When I asked questions it was like him saying you can get pregnant but not really. Any help ladies would be greatly appreciated.

I have pcos and yes it's treatable. I don't have much experience with the low reserve but I think your dr will be able to help. I know how emotional ttc is especially when you find out there are issues. I was diagnosed with insulin resistance and dh has low morphology. Fx for you.
