PCOS

There are many people in my life that have been more than supportive of the face that I may not always be able to control my tears, and have a hard time loosing weight that seems to be gained overnight, along with other wonderful things like being 26 and still fighting acne full time, being tired often, and many other things. There are many women out there that know the routine, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

We found out officially last summer that I had PCOS, but because of a wonderful friend were suspicious that I may have had it for a few years prior. What finally lead to finding it was that my body faked a pregnancy last year. I had all the symptoms, started gaining a little baby bump, the list goes on and on. I didn't go to the doctor because, well because of my history! Finally where I would have been about 3 months I went and did the regular tests and the doctor found PCOS. It wasn't a surprise to me, but what she told me was...she said with her help and lots of prayer she was 100% sure that we would be able to conceive. Well, she ended up moving to New Zealand after just 3 months of working with her.

But let me tell you, while the testing, ultrasounds, blood work, and giving myself shots were not that great for those 3 months...the fact that I was, well, normal was wonderful. Handsome and I have often talked that we wished that it didn't cost so much to go through month after month because we would like to have the normal even steven and able to have fun and love life me back on a regular basis, but it was between $750 & $1000 a month out of pocket!

Anyway, PCOS can affect 1 in 15 women (MINIMUM) and the symptoms can run the gamut from person to person. As a general rule PCOS ladies are heavier and have trouble loosing weight, but even smaller ladies can have PCOS as well. Because it is becoming so widespread, I would like you to check out this website and read more about it.

PCOS is a whole lot of not-fun! I so hear you. I was hoping it would all just go away after being pregnant with B - like maybe things would fix themselves. Not so much I don't think.
