Thank you for your reply. I'm glad I came across this forum...it's comforting to know I'm not in this alone and that what I'm feeling is normal. I guess I just need to try harder to trust that my doctor knows what he's doing, and to remember that nothing is impossible...maybe one day I will get to have a baby, but it will be in God's timing, not mine (which sometimes is hard to accept since I'm such a control freak! haha).
I will look into that Low GI diet you mentioned. I've struggled with being overweight almost my whole life and I know losing some pounds would help my overall health, not just with my PCOS. I've lost a few pounds since starting the medications earlier this year, but not a significant amount. Maybe if I could drop even just 10 pounds that would help...View Thread
I have been dealing with acne, hair loss, unwanted facial hair, and weight gain since my late teens. I never realized what was going on with me until my husband and I decided to try for a baby, and over a year went by with no results. I finally was diagnosed with PCOS about a year ago and began seeing an OBGYN for treatment. It has been a slow, frustrating process. For months now I've been taking metformin and spironolactone, which seems to have slightly helped my hormone levels and a few symptoms, and my cycles are more regular (although they are 20 days long instead of a normal 28), but it seems like there's still no sign that I am ovulating. I feel like my doctor should be doing more for me, like maybe there's some kind of medication he hasn't tried yet or diet that he hasn't recommended. I feel like we are stuck in this routine of monthly visits and occasional ultrasounds that have very little results. Am I just being too impatient or should I consider seeking a second opinion? I would love to hear about others' experiences with treatment.View Thread
