anyone had polycystic ovaries and get preggy ? can it be recovered??
thks for the reply..
how much does it cost for that treatment?
I think its about 4k plus. I did it at Mt A as my gynae is at Mt A or Thomson Medical Center. I claim fully with my insurance.
You may check out my Gynae as i recommended several person to him and some did LOD and all successfully got pregnant.
Of course its all up to individual physics.
Its located at TPY, CH KOH Clinic.
Hi, i had polycystic ovaries before. Went to this lady hynae at Raffles women centre. Her name is Dr Cornelia Chan. She is a very nice gynae will give you the appropriate advice. For me, she said that i was quite dehyrated that's y lead to polycystic ovaries. Left ovary was bigger than my right. So i heed her advice drank lots of water and i got pregnant after that. Not a major thing to worry about. dont worry. Drink lots of water at least 2litres a day, it really does help.
Dr Thong also told me that i'm PCOS type......1 issue is that i'm fat and my AF is super duper irregular......since my mensus is always late, my follicles are also of low quality and they dont grow....thus, i dont have ovulation......
i did my 2nd IUI 2weeks ago but failed again...i'm extremely upset about it....Dr Thong told me that the next step is IVF...no point doing another IUI as its most likely to fail.........
i intend to do my IVF next year......meanwhile, i thought of going traditional chinese medicine to "tiao" my body 1st....but dear husband feels that traditional chinese medicine is not reliable and say its ok if we dont have any kids....alot of pple are also facing the same problem as us.....its no big deal......but i was thinking, if i dont do it now, i will regret as i grow older....our chances of getting preggie decrease as we grow older.....by then, its like abit late lohhhh.....
sighz.....i'm also lost yaaaaaa......i'm also very very upset at work...boss keep picking at me for noting......
its down time for my life now....kana marked by boss + 2nd IUI fail....its really a big blow to me
Regarding using traditional chinese medicine to 'tiao' the body to ovulate better: my friend's wife also went through that and managed to conceive naturally after ovulation went back to normal. I think can try it first, no harm...

i was reading on PCOs....saw that even with those ovulation pills like clomid, it does not necessary mean you got ovulation lohhhh....tats what my gynae told me when my IUI failed....she said she cant see the egg, only can see follicle......got follicle does not mean you will have egg.......tats the disadvantage of IUI.........
sighz...i was thinking, maybe i dont even have the egg lohhhhh....so no point doing IUI again.......
i will go ahead to "tiao" my body 1st baaa...meanwhile, need to lose some weight......
**there goes my bubble tea..sobz sobz**
Once again i tink i read somewhere (been reading up hehe).. not all conditions can go for IUI.. let me go check again then i will put the info here.. i tink certain conditions must go thru to IVF .. so dont waste money on IUI which i tink if you gg to do it few times might as well save all on IVF? i m also a pcos victim so i m also damn worried... plus my hubby also got defect sperm heads.. OMG.. sianz
the gynar is the one who propose IUI ....but she did ask me to try IVF cos she say, from IVF, she can check the quality of the eggs....but of cos, for the 1st time, we can always try IUI........she say its really up to me......cos of the IVF costs (super exp yaaaa)...tats y me n dear husband decide to try IUI 1st.....but tried 2times, both failed....super SIANZ!!!!!!!!!!!
i'm thinking, so much problems liaoo...if me really preggie, i tink WORSE !!!!
its like giving myself endless problem by getting preggie....
sighzz...very negative thoughts....
Hi Lawla12, I'm sure you can conceive one day...maybe you want to consult my friend, she's a pharmacist, but now she does health consulatation like yur case...Its interesting cos she uses supplements to help her patients cope with their health issues...I think its true that we must be healthy first before we can pass down our genes to our babies..if you are interested, you can pm me. Hope to help...even polysystic overies, she can help...
may i check with you.
can Polycystic ovaries be detected through the normal scanning?
normally how do you all know that you are likely to have Polycystic ovaries?
we have been trying for the past 6 months after M/C in Jan.
are we too anxious?
the gynae will do a scan in below (private area)....usually if you go for 1st timer check-up...they will scan below, check your tubes, check your dear husband's sperm count.....
i tink 6mths quite ok baaaa...i tried on my own for 8 mths before seeing gynae then realise i got so much problem...sighz...
BUT, its never too early to consult a gynae for check-up......at least you know whether there's any problem and faster rectify it....
can I check if PCOS genetic? Not sure if my prob is that or not cos my gynae never say...maybe..i should ask my gyane...
I'll be seeing my gynae this wk.. for the med (clomid) that he prescribed for me to ovaluate...
If i dont't ovaluate, then i will need to go for IUI lei!
Can you also tell me the IUI process? Need jabs?
I am a PCOS patient and I conceived and is currently expectin my 1st child
never give up hope. Like many PCOS patients, I thought it is the end of the world but not when I got pregnant
I was very panic when before I got married. When I got diagnosed with PCOS around 3 yrs back, I was depressed and the world seems crashing down on me.
My condition was such that my ovary got many blockage..I think is eggs that is trapped in the follicles, that's y i cant have my menses regularly.. Then i was on Yasmin pills a birth control pill(BCP), it work initially for a few cycles, but the side effects I got was wt gained and if not wrong discomforts. Oh ya, terrible outbreaks of cystic pimples.. those big acne with 'no heads'!
Then I seek an alternative opinion with a skin doctor due to my bad complexion and was prescribed diane-35 pills,a BCP too. Then after at least 6 mths of (6 cycles) of diane35, my skin got better and my menses regulated too and i am able to have my regular monthly periods.
While taking all the cycles and preparation of my wedding, i still take diane35 as I dont want to risk my face for my big day.. After my customary wedding, i thot i want to try regulating my mense 'naturally' by taking the natural course,i.e., be off the pills and see if my menses come..but after 4 mths, it didnt. but thru'out these 4 mths, my wt gained steadily.
I started to feel easily hungry, at occasionally, without good reason, feel my head was spinning! Then because my menses did not arrive, i suspected that i might be pregnant, so went to a GP to check
And I 'hit' it! I am diagnosed to be pregnant..
This is my experience with PCOS. See, if a PCOS patient like me can get pregnant, seek earlier treatment if you can and know you are a PCOS patient, chances are you will also be ablw to conceive and get pregnant
Have Faith, have condidence.
Trust the doctors and give it a try, consult the doc and go thru treatment early..
All the best to you and all PCOS patients who are trying to get pregnant.
Jia You! =)
When i was diagnosed with PCOS, all i went thru is a vaginal scan to see you ovaries and then a blood test to determine and confirm if you r a PCOS patient.
No, you are not anxious. I think it is normal.
Mhy side effects were
1) irregular or very long gap in betw last menses and current menses
2) Severe outbreaks
3) Weight gain
The most accurate test is to go to a gynae and get diagnosed.
Take Care cnydear!
I was detected of my PCOS via 1) a vaginal scan, & a blood test.
From 1), your gynae can check your both your ovaries to see if there is any blockage and what is the root of the prob.
For me, i know I have PCOS as i exhibits signs and symptoms shown by most PCOS patient.
1) Severe outbreak
2) Rapid wt gain and easily hungry
3) easily emotional
4) Irregular menses or gap betw last menses and current menses is very long.
No , you r not anxious, it is best to detect earlier and get treatment to overcome PCOS, at least to enable to conceive then get pregnant!
Jia You and i hope you seek consultation with a trusted gynae soon and rest with ease if you r found not to have cystic ovaries.
