I am new here, and I was wondering. If I have been diagnosed with pcos and I lose the extra weight, and stay on a healthy diet, is it possible that I can get pregnant (when I try) and not miscarry? I've heard scary stories of women who have pcos and they try getting pregnate either miscarry or don't get pregnate at all. I'm not ready for children yet, I don't have any special in my life, and I don't really want to be pregnate. Just the thought of not being able to concieve scares me.

Yes everything is possible I have pcos and I was put on metformin it helped me lose weight and I still did not have a regular cycle so I went to a infertility specialist and he put me on metformin 850mg 2x a day and clomid to help me ovulate so I hope it works this clomid I was just put on it on tuesday but the metformin I have been on for like 3 months so yes its possible...I have read many about many women getting preg with no meds at all it just depends everyones differnt I like the web site soulcysters.Com everyone on that one has pcos and they tell their story and ask questions and their also so check it out... So keep me posted

I found out I have pcos in september and was given clomid and metformin at the end of october because I had been ttc for a year.

I have just found out I am pregnant!! Yay!! So yes anything can happen. I asked my doctor about mc and she said it is quite common anyway unfortunatly but the risk with pcos is only slighty increased!.

Not only am I pregnant but this will be my third child. So please dont get concerned that you wont be able to have children because alot of the time that just isnt the case!!

This is so awsome guy, thanks so much.
I was put on metformin as soon as I found out I have pcos. I take two pills in the morning and one at night. Are you on metformin for the rest of your life? I haven't been put on clomid yet. I guess you have to be ttc and well, I don't need that now (i have never had a boyfriend... So that helps that question! Lol).

Thanks so much for you answers. If there are any more answers, go ahead and post them.

Girls, I have no idea if this has anything to do with my psoc (an it probably does), I finally got my period on monday (it was scheduled to start on saturday but...). However, it was extremely heavy. I have never had a period where I had to use two extra heavy tampons in one day, and I had to do this on the second day too. The period would not stop (sorry, tmi). I reallized today that my period is basically over, no more blood. Have any of you ever had a period for two days with exessive bleeding? I was scared and still am.

I have pcos and yes, I did have a miscarriage but went on to have a healthy baby girl who is now 4. We are trying for #2 now and are having some of the same difficulties as before but it is definitely possible to have a child.

Your excess of bleeding could be from the metformin you are taking, or perhaps your body is just going though something and is heavier this month. I have had that happen to me......Regular bleeding for many months and then one month I will get a very light af, and the next month it can be very very heavy. My last period was the heaviest I have ever had.....Used 2 super tampons in one day and a regualr one after that. I wouldn't worry about it too much. If you are getting other side effects though, I would go and see your doctor. Hope this helps!

I think some people continue with metformin even when not ttc. I think it just depends on your symptoms and blood levels and things. My doctor isn't having me stay on it because at this point, she said I don't need to. As for heavy bleeding, how long have your cycles been. My first one on metformin was pretty heavy but it was also a long cycle. This cycle was more regular in length but is so light I am wondering what is going on.

Abbysmom - hmmmmmm, really light huh?! Could it be a false period and perhaps you could be pregnant? Are your temps still fairly high?
Can you post your link again to fertility friend - I am curious to see how your temps are!!!! Just hoping here for ya! Laughing

Oops - just found your link!! Well, your temps are still a bit higher than last cycle, they look to be staying around the same as they were after you ovulated!! (usually after af starts they go down don't they?!) this could be a good sign?! Let us know how you do!

Here is my link:

my temps are down. They still haven't fallen below my coverline but they did significantly drop. This is a really weird af though. I am on day 2 and am just using a pantiliner. Usually, I would be going through several pads on day 2. Sorry if that is tmi

Hi! Have you thought about testing again in a few days, or going to have a blood test done....Just to make sure?! It may be the metformin, but I have no idea. To be that light on day 2 does sound strange??? Keep track of that temp though so I can take a peak Smile
any other strange symptoms that could be related to af, or pregnancy?

I never actually tested. I just went by the spotting and temp drop. The only symptoms are sore boobs but that could go either way.

Hey! I'm still here. My cycles have been between 26 and 30 days, but never 28. Before this last wierd period, it would last 3 days and for another 4 to 8 days would be extremely light. I would only have to use a regular tampon those first 3 days.

Temp? Do I have to check my tempurature? It's not like i'm trying to concieve now... Maybe once I get a boyfriend, wait a few years, get married and then try for concieving.

I'm just worried that I won't be able to concieve.

Please fokes, don't get me confused and start asking questions on this post about things that aren't even happening to me.

Sorry 2crazy4u - but no one can really answer your question....Only give advice, which they have been doing. Talk to your doctor, take a preg test and if it's negative, chalk it up to a weird period!!!! And don't worry now about not being able to conceive. You will have absolutley no way of telling until you actually try to get pregnant, but alot of people here have had quite the difficulty in doing so, and ended up being blessed with a pregnancy.
Apologies for discussing other people's issues, but (no rudeness meant here) this is a "getting pregnant" forum, and clearly, you are not interested in getting pregnant at the moment.
Try posting on a women's health link in this forum, and maybe more people who have had the same issue as you will post more responses!
Good luck!
