A future without a child

Updated on February 3, 2015

The Physiological Science Book

Sometimes the books the doctors learn from are too far outdated and a simple matter cannot be resolved. For me, I did not ovulate without help, and with the help of medicine I barely ovulated. I went to family doctors who practiced gynecology and delivered babies. I went to obgyn's who were supposed to solve more complicated medical conditions, and yet they all were not equiped to help me menstruate again. This is an unhealthy state to be in. The only advice they gave me was to take synthetic progesterone, which in itself is unhealthy. A better option would be a bioidentical progesterone. There is one that can be prescribed, but to make it a 'drug' other additives are present. Still it is healthier than synthetic.

Eventually I found a doctor, who my insurance would cover, who was not a fertility doctor (not covered by insurance in many cases). It was determined that I had 2 of 3 areas of PCOS.

1. Cysts

2. Elevation of hormones in blood

3. Absence of period

Some people have issues with ovulation. Either they get cysts from Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome PCOS or they don't grow follicles and ovulate. The natural progesterone in the body builds muscle, rebuilds bone and does so much more for the bodies health. And the western diet changes the natural progesterone and in some cases (like mine) alters menstruation. It is essential to the body that menstruation occurs. If you have 2 of 3 of the issues listed above, insist on the PCOS panel at your OBGYNs office.

In my case, I believe the depo provera shot started this chain of events and my body was not able to correct it on its own. I eventually tried several different things, and my future was full of pink and blue. I will write more about my efforts in the near future.

This is me, 3 years after the birth of my 5th child.

Have you suffered from any or all of the symptoms of PCOS?

The return of my cycle - Yay!

I began using metformin, with clomid. This barely worked, and I did not get pregnant. Might I mention my partner had few issues. My new obgyn switched me to Femara, then Tamoxifen to increase dose. I began to ovulate and got pregnant with my 3rd child Nicholas. Skip ahead to the conception of my daughter Isabella, when I discovered Avandia corrected my ovulation issues. So I raised my chances and used Clomid and cooked with a specialized ferinetta product only found at a company called Min-Dak. The product is high in D-Chiro Inositol DCI which helps pcos and infertility from it. Then again in 2010 I got pregnant in the same manner as before, with my son Ryan.

After I stopped breastfeeding Ryan, I was 44 and my cycles returned on their own. I believe this is due to age factors from elevated FSH though I have not been tested. I have no need to try to have another child, at age 46.

TGI not infertility

      Thanks Jas, it sure is treatable. I hope no one else will have to suffer 10 years before figuring out what the doctors should have known. Do you suffer PCOS?

      Now at age 46 I have perfect 28 day cycles.
