Caitlyn's PCOS Story
Posted June 20, 2005

My husband and I have been together for 5 years, married for 4. 3 months after our wedding we gave birth to a beautiful, perfect, healthy baby boy... He will turn 4 this September.

At that time my husband and I decided not to start trying for another baby until after Gabriel (our son)'s first birthday. So, after his birthday, we stopped using protection, and hoped to get pregnant.

After a year, I visited my doctor who then put me on birth control pill to regulate my period... She told me to come back 3 months later, and proceeded to stop the birth control.... 3 months later she sent me for a pelvic ultrasound.. Everything was fine, but there was still no period.... I continued the 3 month routine with this doctor, until March of this year... When frustrated, I called the only fertility specialist that our insurance covers... 10 minutes in his office he had diagnosed me with PCOS - Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

I am now taking provera every month to get a period, and hope to start clomid therapy soon. Throughout this journey, I have been thankful for the wonderful son that I already have, but have longed to have more children. I am keeping my hopes high, And know that I will resolve this issue one way or another....
