Post subject: hi
hi hun,
Welcome to the forum.
I also am overweight with same bmi and TTC. I have all the PCOS symptoms but the doc says that i don't have PCOS. my period is also very irregular and i get it sometimes twice a month and stays sometimes for about 2 months with heavy bleeding. I also got anemia. Anyways, As my period is irregular, doc 1st gave me a med for making my cycles regular. I am planning to do cambridge diet for loosing my weight. Which i heard is very effective. I am also taking pregnacare plus (which contains folic acid and omega 3) for making my body suitable for pregnancy. And i'm making my husband take multivitamins. Don't worry everything will be ok hun. So many people are there who doesn't want a baby and getting pregnant every month, where we are just hoping from our heart to have a baby, God will offcourse answer our prayer.

Best of luck.

Hi Katiedaly, This is the first message I have replied to I also have pcos was diagnosed about 5 years ago all the same symptons. I have 3 children aged 9, 7 and 6 and was told I would never have anymore but I am lucky to say I am 6 months pregnant and delighted, my doctor prescribed me clomid and glucophage and they say the combination of the 2 works better than clomid on its own. GOOD LUCK WITH TRYING!

Hi Poppy21 Smile
PCOS stands for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome; small cysts on the ovaries that can affect your menstrual cycle and therefore your ability to have children.
