You are young. This does not mean you have time to worry about it later.
At this point, you shouldnt really worry about the fertility part, but the future self health part of PCOS.
You should worry about the other things PCOS can cause. High Blood pressure, heart deases, diabetes.
Things to do now- Keep your weight under control. This does not mean always dieting, This means eating the right foods. Limit your carbs, sugars, and fatty foods, increase your fruit and veggies and lean meat.
Exercize. Take a walk around the block, window/wish shop at the mall, take a hike in the woods. Get up and get moving.
Get your blood sugar/insulin, thyroid, trigiserides, and cholesterol checked at least yearly. Your doc may recomend Metformin for the insulin levels, this will prevent you from having diabetes later.
Concider birth control if your cycles are very very irregular or the mood swings are intense. Avoid the implant or depo shots. you dont want a long lasting single dose thing.
Learn your cycles. Track your periods, and any PMS symtoms on a calender or online. Make sure you mention you have PCOS to every new doctor you see.
Do not assume just because you have PCOS, that you will not be able to have children. I know way more women that thought that and have 3 or 4 kids now, than who were right.
I started showing symtoms of PCOS at puberty, and had a probelm with depression and weight gain at 18/19, was finaly dxed at 23 and told I would be diabetic by 30. I was put on metformin by age 25 and I am 33 now without diabetes, but I didnt eat right, and am 270lbs, with high blood pressure and cholesterol. If I had known then what I know now...View Thread
Vicky, Dx PCOS /IR in 2000 at age 23, on Metformin1500mg daily, 7th cycle on Clomid.
It's called With the Exception of Taco Tuesdays . This looks like it is going to be a hilarious blog. I think it might get a little um, "colorful" at times. This girl with PCOS who has trouble losing weight has just moved to a beach house because it is her husband's dream. She hasn't owned a pair of shorts or a bathing suit for years. She either needs to lose the weight and actually leave the house or give up and watch her hubby go surfing everyday with a bunch of college girls. Of course she feels misunderstood and that no one understands, especially her skinny friends and husband. Oh and after years of infertility she had 2 kids, so maybe she'll be giving some insight on that. She is not holding back and is sharing very personal info that I think many of us can identify. She just gave up flour and sugar, with the exception of taco tuesdaysView Thread
I am currently on Metformin 2000 for PCOS and these are tips my doctor gave me, hopefully they can be helpful to you all also!
Weight loss is a big deal with this, along with medication like Metformin, weight control can also help regulate the hormones that are out of whack. I was put on a 1200 calorie a day diet, and I have to split that between eating at least 6 times a day.
Due to the extreme drop in my calorie intake, my energy levels slumped also. I have been taking a "Super B Complex" daily vitamin, and it really helps. Vitamin B is in the majority of the energy shots and drinks out there and it really does work. Plus it is physically impossible for you to overdose on vitamin B because it is water soluable, so what you don't need/use you... excrete lol
I had heard rumors that your chances of concieving are improved when you take a prenatal vitamin while TTC. Getting your folic acid levels up where they should be during pregnancy only improves chances. Checked with doc and he confirmed, the only catch with this one is constipation. The extra iron can cause constipation, but I have not personally experienced that possible side effect.
coming for a large fertile family, not getting pregnant is like being a red flower in a green forest, they questions, accusations, are horrible, it's your fault is always everyones answer, then the mood swings, weight, hair depression how are we to live? Well after visiting the infertility clinic for another scary free study (the first 1996 birth controls that left me severely sick then the clomid that left me suicidal ending with a over production of adhesions on my ovaries) i still would do all i can to have my husbands child/children, any thing to end the night mare. I was told that the 20 years i thought i didn't have a period that i actually had them and didn't know it, i was more normal than i thought so i changed me i drink naked (natural juice) 2x a day green the best and 3 weeks later a period i can see, today nausea, breast tenderness, lil headaches, eating desires all indications of being pregnant scarred to get tested, the point is i increased my vitamin intake natural foods and it helped, if i'm not the next step is to clean my body out then start again with as much fruits veg nuts beans i can consume i feel great, you will to try it and good luckView Thread
