PCOS

Hey Everyone. I hope you are all doing great. A friend of mine was just recently diagnosed with PCOS. She has been married for 8 years now. She has been trying to get pregnant for the past three years. Nothing was happening for her. She and her husband got them checkups done recently. She can't conceive a child now. She has been so sad and depressed lately. She thinks her husband might leave or something. I know her husband and he is a great guy. He would never do such a thing. My friend is just overthinking these days. I can't blame her. I took her to her OBGYM and he suggested her to try assisted conception techniques. I have finally talked her into considering IVF process for herself. I'm planning on taking her to the same clinic I went to for my surrogacy. If any of you can relate to this please share your experience. Ill read it to her. It might help her feel better. It would mean a lot to me. Thank you so much.

Hey Kylie! I hope you're doing good. I understand your concern for your friend, dear. I feel sorry for her. In her situation, IVF treatment is a good option. I hope your clinic has high success rates. Tell her different success stories so that she gets motivated. I hope she becomes a mother very soon. Good Luck!

Hey, Lydia. Hope you are well. Thank you for commenting on my post. I really appreciate it. I read your comment to my friend. She feels better about this now. We have chosen a clinic for her. It's the same clinic I went to. We didn't want to take any risks. I have been their client before. My experience was satisfactory. She and her husband will visit the clinic soon. Right now they are taking some time to analyze it all. But I will keep you all updated on her journey. Hopefully, IVF will work for her. I have heard it works for almost all women with PCOS. Finger's crossed. Pray for her. Thanks a lot.

Kylie, I am sorry for your friend. Tell her that there are so many women who are facing infertility. It's not just her. She should stay strong in this situation. And trust your husband. If he loves you truly, he will never leave you in any situation. I have 2 babies via surrogacy. This process is very successful. Don't worry and take a wise decision before doing anything. Much love!

Tell her to relax. Everything will be fine. IVF helps many people. It has a huge success rate. I am sure she will get happy once she sees the results. I am happy that you have convinced her to go for it. be with her throughout the treatment.

Hey. Thank you for your kind words. She feels so much better now. Her IVF procedure is starting next month. Pray for her. And congratulations on having your babies. I'm glad you chose surrogacy for yourself. I had my son through surrogacy too.

Hello! So sad to hear about your story. I went through your post and I went through something like this. I was diagnosed with diabetes type 2 during pregnancy and lost my child due to fluctuations in my glucose level and so. I went through IVF after that and failed my 4 cycle and then I consulted my doctor and he recommended me surrogacy and now i have a beautiful daughter. I think if she is done with all the treatments go for surrogacy. I went to Europe for surrogacy and i had a good experience. Best of luck.

Hey! I am so sorry for your friend loss. It would be devasting for her I know. My sister was diagnosed with PCOS and she faced infertility for many years. She then decided to go for surrogacy. She went to a clinic in Europe. They gave her hope that she will be a mother soon. She was so happy that she was going to be a mother soon. She went there. They provided her healthy surrogate. The surrogate was examined medically before surrogacy. She was healthy to give birth to the baby. They also provided all the rights to the baby so that the surrogate may not change her mind. So then she gave birth to the baby and the baby was healthy. The baby genetically belongs to her. She is a happy mother now.

Hi. I have read somewhere a good news about PCOs. I know obviously, no sickness is good. But with PCOs, the more a woman ages, the more likely she is to conceive. That is, obviously, until menopause. So there might still be hope. But she has been trying for long enough now. I don't think she needs to wait for more. Does she want a baby? She'll have a baby! If natural pregnancy isn't happening, then assisted conception is the way to go. If she is healthy, IVF is a good option. What do you guys think? But I think IVF has some risks for women with such problems. I had endo and I avoided IVF. I was afraid I might lose the baby again. There's just a higher chance of loss. Surrogacy is a safer option.

Try it? I wish her all success. xx Click here to enlarge

Thanks to you all for being there this whole time. We have been through a hell of a journey. She applied for IVF at the same clinic I mentioned. It failed the first time, unfortunately. She had lost all hope. She gets paranoid about the smallest of things. But thanks to the God and the people of the clinic, it worked the second time. She is not pregnant. I couldn't be happier.

I think she really needs a friend like you at this moment. When I was diagnosed with infertility I had a really hard time even evaluating that. Mainly, because no one in my friend or family circle could relate to us. However, I too believe that she should opt for IVF. That has a very high chance of working out. I am also visiting the same clinic and they are really good with the treatments. So I am sure things will go well. Best of luck to her.

Hi, Monika. Thanks for such a sweet comment. I agree with you. This is exactly why I tried to be there for her as much as I could. My friend stresses over things a lot. She did it this time too. She couldn't conceive after her first transfer. She lost hope completely after this. We got a little worried too. but I knew she was in good hands. Her doctors believed in her. They refused to give up on her. We did another transfer. She conceived after that one. My friend is pregnant now. Everything is great so far. I'm really happy for her.

Hi Zem. Hope you are well. Thank you so much for this comment. You seem like an amazing person. I tried to be with my friend as much as I could. She gets paranoid easily. Her doctor suggested transferring one embryo at a time. So we agreed. This also gave us fewer chances of getting pregnant the first time. She couldn't conceive after the first transfer. But her doctors were hopeful about this. They did another transfer. Luckily, she conceived after that one. I knew this would work for her. It was a bumpy ride, but we made it.

IVF is definitely the ideal way to go. It's really effective. She should take a professional opinion on it. On the outlook, PCOS and IVF go together. Hope this helps your friend conceive. Good luck to her. Sending baby dust for her. x

As someone who is suffering from PCOS, myself, I can just tell her that it's not the end of the world. There are solutions available. She shouldn't lose hope. You're doing the right thing by suggesting her IVF. It almost definitely works with PCOS. Good luck to your friend. If she's reading this, just let her know that she shouldn't feel alone, there are many women out there who are going through this, and that she can do this!
