I have PCOS, and all that goes with it. High blood pressure, borderline diabetes, hypothyroid. I’m also currently 21w 4d pregnant.
Like most other PCOS sufferers, I had irregular menstrual periods w/o bc, and didn’t ovlulate at all. In order to correct this, it took a mix of upping the Metformin and upping the Synthroid (for my thyroid) then using clomid.
The first month, I had follicles, but never released them at the necessary time (we used u/s to check). The next month we did the same, med wise, but upped the clomid and added the ‘trigger
shot’ of Follistim. It worked. Out of 16 follicles, I released 2 eggs, and got pregnant the first IUI. (I know this is against Catholic teaching, I’m just telling my story)
How is your thyroid? Are you seeing a Reproductive Endocrinologist, or just an OB? Has your DH been checked (semen analysis)?
PCOS patients can get pregnant, and carry to term, but it is quite a journey, both before and after the positive preg test. I’m seeing my OB, an endocrinologist for my diabetes, a cardiologist for my blood pressure, and a Perinatology group (high risk doctors).
Hang in there, keep searching and fighting. It can happen!
