I was diagnosed with PCOS last January 2005 and was told that I can not have a baby unless I was given a fertility pill. My January 2006 TVU also showed the same result. But May 2006, I found that I was actually expecting a child. I gave birth to a very healthy boy last December. This is also a good site: http://www.pcosupport.org

Congratulations on your baby boy, wow Im stocked for you. I to have PCOS. Diagnosed in January 2005 and had my baby girl in Septmeber 2006. Although I'd rather not have it 9lol wouldn't we all like to get rid of PCOS) but it has made me so appreciative for my baby girl, my loving husband and for life itself.

Thank you, I checked it out and it made me feel better. When I found out today, I was heartbroken I would not be able to have another child, but this states that I very well could.

Just thought I would recomment an Australian website that has amazing information resources on PCOS. www.posaa.asn.au There is a forum there, regular surveys and questions asked. The community there is very helpful so if you are Australian or just want to have a peek, check it out.

there is a lot to learn about it ...and im still learning....i really reccomend that book thats she has on the site as well as the new revolition way of eating for PCOS. i have learned so much from those books. Also try and make sure your daughter has a great doctor who understands what she has and doesnt just say oh its just a fertility thing....cuz it is more than that! good luck! and thank you for responding!

I would recommend your daughter getting tested for Insulin Resistance as this is what a lot of women with PCOS have and they find it hard to lose weight. If you know whether she is insulin resistant or not, you can then work out her diet. They say losing weight will help with managing PCOS.
