There are so many different variations in women who have PCOS. Everything I read when I was diagnosed said that having PCOS doesn’t mean you will have an actual cyst on your ovary(ies) as I have never had one. However, it refers to the bubbling up of water-filled sacs (“cysts”) during ovulation…it can cause a woman to either NOT ovulate…or to ahve a painful ovulation…or she may never notice anything at all.
Anyway, i haven’t struggled infertility as of yet due to it…but I was just diagnosed over the course of the last few years and had two babies in between things that finally, when pieced together, helped us come to the PCOS diagnosis.
I am not one with the insulin resistance…I was tested…but the doc thinks that if I ever give up running as much as I do (I’m a marathoner) I could give way to it.
I take natural progesterone for 10 days of my cycle (beginning on day 18 if I notice I’ve ovulated…beginning on day 20 if I don’t notice ovluation by then). This helps balance out my hormones.
I still have anovulatory cycles…usually one every three or four cycles.
With a good pro-life doctor, I would think you will be able to figure out a treatmnt that will work for you.
