My poor husband must feel like he is being used. Lol. Thanks for taking time to read

Don't worry about it so much! I'm in the same boat with the pcos but I don't even have one child! I was told when I was 17 (i'm 22), but really my np hardly told me anything about it and she didn't even run any tests to confirm to dx. I recently decided to look up all the info myself recently and was so upset when I found out it was linked to diabetes and all the horrible stats on achieving pregnancy. I'm about to go to a new doctor to get the ir part treated but i'm not ttc yet (my boyfriend and I have two years before we can marry). I called him sobbing when it hit me that I might not ever have kids. But then it hit me that you can't worry about it to much, otherwise it will make things worse. There are many women with pcos who had children without even trying and the fact that you have one already is a good sign. I think they make it sound alot worse than it is. Plus, there are alot of treatments that can help! When I get worried I just remind myself that my grandmother ttc for eight years before she got pregnant. Once she stopped trying and stopped worrying she found herself pregnant. She ended up with 3 kids. So don't stress!
