Hi. I am 23 years old and just found out a week ago I have PCOS. The second my doctor told me I was beyond scared to say the least. My first thought of course was that my husband and I will not be able to conceive. Having a healthy baby is all I have wanted, besides marrying the love of my life. I hate to ask for more than what I already have. I do not know much about PCOS and I have read the information my doctor gave me and of course I have been online researching it. The internet can be very confusing with all of its information. Just when I think I finally understand what my next step is, I find more information that I am unsure of. I am trying very hard not to stress over this because I know that stress is only going to cause further issues with ttc. I am afraid though that when I finally do start with all the medicines and treatments and exams and everything else that it's not going to work out in my favor and I am going to be left majorly disappointed in the end.
At this point I am just wondering if it really is possible to get pregnant with PCOS. Also if I have PCOS does it mean I have diabetes? One more thing.. one of the symptoms I have is unwanted facial hair...badly. I wax my face and when the hair is to short I bleach it with cream face bleach. Is there any way to treat this? I know these are questions I need to be asking my doctor, and trust me I will. Its just I was hoping to get other people's opinions and experiences as well.
Honestly any information/experience in regards to PCOS that you could provide to me would be very appreciated. I am new to WebMD so I haven't had a chance to read through all of the posts.
I haven't been put on any medications yet. I go Thursday to talk with my doctor. My last visit she mentioned a few medications but said we would get into that more after I had blood work and an ultra sound done. If no one else responds by Thursday to your question I can let you know what I find out.View Thread
