Nervous

Postby Pamela25 » Thu Jun 27, 2013 6:09 pm

His all-
I am new to this. Here is my background. I am 35, married for 5 years. I was on bc for close to 7 years. Before bc I always had a regular cycle. I have always been on the heavier side but always healthy. Over the past 4 years I gained a lot of weight which I attributed to stress as my husband was out of work for a long time. I eat ok- no fried foods, no sugary drinks but am a fan of carbs. I went off bc in December and got my period in January and February. I missed my period in march so my dr. Had me take provera in April which worked. In may I bled for one day and have not gotten my period this month. I am not pregnant but am breaking out like a 13 year old. I have read up on pcos and I can relate to the symptoms. I am just nervous to call my doctor to either find something terribly wrong or find that I am healthy and in limbo.

Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Well I too am a little fluffy but I am also irregular. My AF was MIA for the whole month of April and it messed me up a little to ttc.

This could be caused by stress ir illness, etc so not sure but how many dpo are you?

Pamela, I can understand your nervousness. I think that your condition is very critical and you should go for a whole treatment. I think that a doctor will guide you in a better way. my younger sister was also indulged in this condition and then she joined the best clinic. The clinic proves very beneficial for her. it removed all of her pain and suggest her an appropriate treatment. It’s a great dedication indeed. Take the opportunity.

Hey Pamela.Hope you are doing well.I know it must be tough right now.But nevertheless it will come out someday.So rather then wait.I would say to call your doctor and discuss it with your doctor.IF you need a second opinion or another clinic.I could recommend you one in Ukraine.I am having my treatment done from them and they have been great.A lot of women with similar problems like yours are being treated there.I hope nothing major comes to light and wish you are healthy.

I think all this is quite common. You should just focus on losing your weight. You're doing it all in the right manner. I know, losing weight can be a little difficult. Don't give up so easily, though. You can do this, I'm sure of it! Lots of love and prayers for you.

Hey, the symptoms you have mentioned do point towards PCOS. I would say don't be scared! It's better that you get to know before its too late. Its soo important to get yourself tested at the right time. It will save so much of your time. I know it is scary but it will be worth it. Once the problem is determined the doctors will be able to help you out in a better way. Good luck to you.

This could be a case of PCOS. You shouldn't be nervous, though. There are many methods available to sort with those things. Stay focused on the things that can improve the situation. That should be losing weight, first of all. Keep testing and stay in contact with your doctor, as well. There are many methods like IVF and IUI which you can opt for if you want to conceive! Good luck, hun!

@ maddy, the moderator, talks a lot on PCOS on viewtopic.php?f=35&t=222085. She writes~
Symptoms of PCOS:
Reduced menstrual cycles than normal or complete lack of having any cycles. 
Some can have monthly cycles but not actually be ovulating.
Heavy bleeding during your period, and spotting in between cycles.
Hair loss on your scalp
Excess hair growth on your body such as your face, chest, back, stomach, thumbs, or toes.
Acne and oily skin
Weight gain that is mostly gained around your midsection.
Miscarriage and infertility
Insulin resistance. This can cause miscarriage, poor egg quality, and irregular periods.
Cysts on your ovaries
Difficulty to lose weight despite dieting and exercise
Multiple positive OPKs throughout your cycle, but no ovulation happens.
There is no one single test that is done to diagnose PCOS. It is more a combination of different test results and your symptoms that will lead to a diagnoses..
And plenty of other info!! Have a look!!
