PCOS - 7 Miscarriages - Massive Hair Growth On My Face And Pregnancy

Jun 3, 2013

So, to being, I'm 25. I've had seven miscarriages so far and I really don't want to lose this one. I've finally found a stable enough relationship with my fiancee who has been super supportive through all of this. Also, I have an advanced case of PCOS that causes massive hair growth on my face and other parts of my body, so I have an overproduction of testosterone.

About a week or so ago, I found out I was 3 weeks pregnant. I had my usual period but then the bleeding wasn't stopping so I called my doctor, they asked me to take a pregnancy test, it came out positive. They had me follow up with another one the following day and it too was positive. They had me come in and do blood draws.

The first draw returned HCG levels of 103. That was Wednesday of last week. On Friday last week, I went in for another blood draw and the HCG level was at 150. So it is increasing, but I am still bleeding. It's not the normal implantation blood which is darker in color, it's a brighter red like a period.

Sometimes it's heavier than others on some days and other days it's lighter. Even throughout the day it changes how heavy or light it is. I'm so confused and it's causing me undue stress which is not good for the baby.

I've only had one day where there was tissue passed and that scared the ever living daylights out of me. I really want this baby and I'm trying everything I can to keep it. I've been taking prenatal vitamins every morning, I quit drinking caffeinated drinks all together, I've been drinking more water, eating more fruit everything you're supposed to do to help the baby grow strong.

The doctors tell me not to worry but because of my past history, I can't help but. I'm going in for another blood draw today and I'm worried as all hell that it's going to come back even lower and that they will tell me I'm going to lose this baby.

Anyone else experience anything like this where the bleeding increases and decreases throughout the day?

PCOS :: Unable To Sleep,excessive Hair Growth, Weight Gain And Acne

I m 19. I m the type of person well I used to be the type of person who would wake up with the biggest smile at 2am... But recently since the past few months it feels like everything s changed. I find it so hard to go to sleep - I be tossing and turning in bed till 1-2am, and I find it hard to wake at 10am (I honestly have never been able to sleep later than 10am) but recently I ve actually had to force myself out of bed, coz I feel that tired.  I feel really less motivated recently too, it feels like I'm going to get nowhere in life even though I'm working really hard with everything I want to succeed in; whether it's my education, whether it's losing weight etc.

I ve been feeling kinda down, sad and lonely lately too. It just feels like I've got no one - I m all alone. I m a very cheerful person and I never felt like this before. I do not have any siblings, I ve got loads of relatives/cousins but I barely get to meet them/talk to them. I feel lonely... Feels like I've got no one. 

I suffer from PCOS which makes things worse - like all the excessive hair growth, weight gain, acne etc. It feels like I can't cope with it anymore. I just fake a smile. I cry within. 

I just don't know what's wrong with me. I told my mum once and she just started laughing and say you ll be fine, but she doesn't know how I feel! Like I can t explain how it feels, I can t explain it to myself either. I feel lost. Completely lost.

Fertility :: PCOS And Early Miscarriages

I have PCOD and I've had 3 early miscarriages since 2013 and the last one was in Oct 2014. I started having irregular periods 2-3 months back again and my doctor prescribed me to take 3 cycles of primolut N to regularise my periods. Also I m taking folic acid for more than 40 days now. And I am taking my third cycle of Primolut N now. I want to conceive now. Should I take clomipure from next cycle right away? I've had many a test including Torch, Anticoagulant lupus vitamin D3 etc and many more and there was no problem found in those. Please suggest my future course of action so that I get success in both conceiving and retention. I miscarry before any cardiac activity at around 6th week and once I had missed abortion at 12th week as foetus was of size 6 weeks with no cardiac activity.

Hypothyroidism :: Pregnancy - Birth Defects And Miscarriages?

I have recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and I have been doing research but one thing that seems very unclear and I keep getting mixed messages is whether or not you would be able to have children.

Some say that you can but they will have brain and growth defects or you will keep miscarrying and have a very complicated pregnancy. And some say it won't affect you at all

Since I am 23 this is very important information to me.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome :: PCOS And Pregnancy

I've recently been diagnoses with PCOS after not having periods for 18 months and the only help I received was being told to lose weight, they didn't even worry about the fact I've not had a period for a year and a half (which worried me when before that I had a period every 28-30 days)

Me and my partner TTC on 17th June (after having a period and my cervix and mucus indicating ovulation) and I took a pregnancy test today (I know it's early but I am so impatient) and it came back negative. But I've been feeling all the symptoms of pregnancy, sickness, headaches, cramping, back pain, areolas darkening, breast tenderness, insomnia (I just can't seem to get comfortable) and I just know something doesn't feel normal as I know my body well.

I just wanted to know what I should do, I worry that if I am pregnant my hormone levels might cause a miscarriage as they only said my testosterone levels were high but didn't tell me how high or if it could cause a difficult pregnancy. 

Should I just wait as see if I get a BFP or should I go to the doctors and ask for a blood test.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome :: Pregnancy And Pcos

I am waiting for results to find out if I am pregnant for the first time since finding out I have pcos but one thing is confusing me and always has done, pcos causes your hormonal levels to become imbalanced and making the male hormones become too high so would this not mask the actual levels in your body for tests to pick up??? Because the way I see it and no one will explain it to me, surely it would have to elevate to become "normal" and then have to go even higher before a test will pick up the levels? If someone could answer this for me I would be so grateful as I have wondered this for literally years and now I have loads of symptoms including sickness, a 'pressure' just above my knicker line, constantly hungry (not like me at all!!), extremely emotional and easily start crying (again very much not like me, usually takes a lot to make me cry. ...usually) and always extremely tired. Have been to socs and she said it sounds like I am pregnant even saying the sleepiness was the clincher but I am worried about the test results.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome :: Can Pregnancy Wait With Pcos?

I was diagnosed with pcos about a year ago. My periods had just stopped and I hadn't had one for about a year and a half, they we're always irregular but had never just stopped before . I don't think I have it really bad, (I don't know really), but ever since I was diagnosed I've noticed my weight just escalate and growing more hair in odd places along with the no periods and loads of gross spots on my chin constantly! . I'm 29, 5'7 and weigh 12 stone, which is literally the heaviest I have ever been. Trying to loose weight has been a struggle, so went to the docs and she started me on metformin. Been on it for 2 months now. It seems I am loosing weight slowly but still no periods. 

Me and my partner have been together for 7 years now, but I'm still not ready to have a baby, but I'm scared I'm not taking my pcos seriously enough and should get on it incase it never happens?! . I do smoke too which is obviously something I have to conquer before we start trying. Is age 33-34 too late to start trying if you've got pcos?

Also when I was diagnosed I realised I must of had it for years because I had quite a lot of unprotected sex in my teens (bad, I know) and never got pregnant.
