Trying for a baby - April 6th 2017, 06:23 PM

Hey guys,

About a month ago my partner and I decided we would like to have a baby. I'm going to my doctor this weekend to discuss my options with them. I had a large cyst removed from one of my ovaries 7 years ago, they had to remove part of that side of my ovaries. I was told my fertility would be totally normal but since then I have been since been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, so I know my chances of conceiving naturally smaller than that of other women. I am giving up smoking as fertility treatment would not be given to us if either of us are smokers, and plus I would have to give up smoking when I become pregnant, so I may as well start quitting now. Have any others had an experience with fertility treatments themselves. I am just so frightened that this may not happen for us.

Thank you in advance!

Hi Paige,

I'm sorry that you've had to go through all of that scary stuff with your ovaries and everything.

My friend has been having a lot of trouble conceiving as well and is actually starting IVF next week.

With working on the Delivery unit, I do see a lot of girls able to get pregnant with other methods. Unfortunately, with having polycystic ovary syndrome, the chances that you can become pregnant naturally are very slim. So your only choice may be some type of IVF.

I will try and find some more information for you.

Please keep me updated,
Brittany

I haven't had experience but I know someone who had trouble with their fertility (can't remember if it was PCOS or endometriosis) and after many years of trying is pregnant. My mum's friend did have IVF and it took a few tries and was expensive but it worked for her.

I can't imagine how disheartening it can get for you at times. But I think that looking into fertility treatments and trying not to lose faith can help.

Hey Holly,

Thank you, that gives me some positivity. It was never the plan to start trying now. I just look at everyone having babies and I think the longer I leave it the harder it is going to be for me. Since I was 17 I have dreaded the day I decide to have children. Hopefully my doctor will be able to shed some light tomorrow.

Hey there. My husband and I are currently trying for a child, and I also have PCOS. We are on two different types of medications that are taken in the form of a pill. Provera and Clomid. I take Provera because I don't have a period, and Clomid helps me ovulate. We have been successful with this, we have gotten pregnant on it once already. (We ended up miscarrying though, but that had nothing to do with the medicine.)

I truly hope that soon enough we will be hearing an announcement! Best wishes!

Hey,

Thank you! Hopefully we'll be hearing an announcement from you too! I went to my doctor and he said he wants to focus on getting my anxiety sorted first meds wise and changing things to meds that are safe when pregnant, *if* I get pregnant, and to continue trying.

I wish you the best of luck!
Paige

Paige, good luck!

I agree that it's best to get anxiety out of the way. Even in normal, healthy pregnancies/with functioning reproductive systems, anxiety can still cause problems. Do you have someone you can reach out to? Or can your specialist refer you to someone within the mental health area? I think you are a wonderful person and I have no doubt you will be an amazing mom.

I wish you all the best and like Addy said, I hope we hear news soon!

My Friend has a polycystic ovary syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes but she got pregnant after 9 years without going to a fertility clinic. That may also be the reason why she got pregnant so late. Just continue getting fertility treatments, it will work just trust the process.
