First try at this! I am 24 years old and have been trying to get pregnant for almost 2 years. At my last appointment I was told I have atypical PCOS. I have done lots of reading about the syndrome and am really just starting this discussion for emotional help. I never thought I was the type of person to literally scowl at ladies that are pregnant. I wouldn't say I am totally depressed on the issue it just makes me sad that I can't conceive. I feel my heart sinking every time I look at my nephew whom some days I don't even want to see. I was just wondering what you other women out there have done to help with the emotional stress of fertility. Everyone tells you not to worry but how can't you? My husband is 7 years older than I am and he wants a family more than I think I do LOL. I will not give up just need a pick-me-up right now feeling lost!View Thread
I am on provera to get my periods and then clomid. I have only done 3 cycles. I have had to switch doctors because of insurance so I think that has a lot to do with the way I am feeling. I met my new doc in the morning.View Thread
I feel you pain. I have only been trying 2 years and feel that I going though the same issues. I feel no one tells you how much other people getting pregnant is going to affect you. It seems I am hearing about lots of pregnancies but none of them are me. All I can say is keep your head up girl! We are out there or at least I will be! I really am trying to wrap my head around all of it. My brain is always leaping to thoughts of what if this doesn't happen or I just want to give up. Crying is an everyday for me...and it has only been 2 years...I can't imagine struggling for as long as you have? How have you dealt with it so far? The next step? What do you have as options? Do you want to adopt? Keep trying for your own? What treatments have you gone through so far?View Thread
