    pcos and trying for a baby

    HI i am new to forums and also to this site. i have been trying for a baby for 5 years now and obviously had no success. i have pcos and the wierd thing is i have had a baby before (but with a different partner). we have been turned down for ivf on nhs and they said oh just lose a stone and we think youll get pregnant so last year i lost over a stone (stil got 2 i could comfortably do with losing) however, if anything it's made my periods worse. it's almost like i'm going through menopause at the moment. has anyone else experienced periods getting worse after they have lost weight?

    sorry if i said too much personal stuff. as you can imagine it's all i think about.

    Hi
    I have pcos and when I got pregnant with my daughters 12 & 15 yrs ago now my GP had prescribed me clomid as women with pcos seams to have problems ovulating and clomid this makes your ovaries release more eggs. has this been offered? have they investigated all other options ovarian drilling ect?
    At the time i was ttc my periods were all over the place. I didnt have weight issues and I was at a healthy weight then but there was problems with ovulation owing to the cysts on my ovaries.
    Do you keep track of your cycle at all? the mydays app for the iphone is really good and works out your cycle and predicted ovulation days by tracking your periods. I know at least 2 people that have gotton pregnant since tracking on there.
    I can understand its all you think of Ive been there.
    Good luck x
    this year i will get to my goal!
    love slimming world as i can cook food for the whole family and not faff about working out what i can eat

    hey ya. oh it's a long story with me. I have about 3 periods a year and did the tests that showed that i do not produce eggs / ovulate. so i had a laparoscopy (where i died twice on the table) and then they put me on clomid 100mg for 6 months. That didn't work either so htey have dropped me and my case saying ill have to go private. its so expensive to buy ovulation tests. i normally do one every single day so 30 a month or so just to give me an idea of what's going on. ill have a look at my days app - that's really helpful thanks

    I don't mean to sound a killjoy but I have PCOS and have had two periods in the past 18 months. I'm seeing a fertility specialist who told me that opk's might not work with PCOS. So I googled and came back with this:

    http://www.womens-health.co.uk/ovulation-kits-pcos.html

    Obviously they might work depending on your cycle but I figure if its not going to work I'm not spending a huge amount on them.

    Re: pcos and trying for a baby

    I only have a period once every 6month most times,and that's brought on bye medication. But I did find I was doing a opk every day for several months and they didn't work for me.

    Hiya,
    I am 34 and have PCOS and I don't have periods at all, i think my last natural one was about 5 years ago!! I've been TTC for 11 years but its impossible when you're not producing eggs!
    I have been told countless times that its my weight and I lost 2 stone, nothing changed. I recently pushed for a hysteroscopy because of the complications associated with not having periods, the results should be in on Friday.... if thats ok then I can proceed with IVF at a private clinic. They accept a BMI of 35.

    Yes, I'm at 33.1 now. The best advice I can give is don't let them fob you off. Keep pushing until you get what you want.
